Blu-ray Release: Runner Runner

January 7, 2014

Runner Runner Blu-ray CoverToday, 20th Century Fox released Runner Runner on Blu-ray & DVD.  When Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake) gets swindled out of his life savings through online poker, the Princeton student travels to Costa Rica to confront the tycoon behind the gambling website, the sleazy Ivan Block (Ben Affleck).

A critical and commercial misfire when it was released in theatres back on October 4th, Runner Runner often feels middling at best, unfortunately devoid of the suspense that could have been wrung out of these situations.  But Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck are both likeable performers, and fans of the actors should have enough mild curiosity to give this one a rental.

The Blu-ray includes deleted scenes and a featurette.

Runner Runner is 91 minutes and rated 14A.
