Shockingly, it turns out that Ivan has a dark side. The beach-house parties and dancing girls are revealed to be the playthings of Satan, and even the humble crocodiles become the film's equivalent of Chekhov's gun on the mantelpiece, to be hauled out again when the blood hits the water.
In the meantime, poor Richie finds himself bedevilled by sketchy supporting characters who function as a kind of karaoke Greek chorus. This is a lazy, trashy film that barely goes through the motions.
Soon Richie finds the truth about the disloyal Ivan and he has to find a way out to escape from Ivan and Shavers using his intelligence and money.
Fortunately I did not pay attention to the bad reviews in IMDb and we saw "Runner Runner" yesterday in a group of three.
Everybody enjoyed this film that is not a masterpiece but a good entertainment even for a Saturday night.

User Reviews. User Ratings. FBI Agent Shavers kidnaps Richie and threatens to ruin his life in various ways if he does not assist in getting Ivan convicted.
Shavers cannot do anything legally as he has no authority in Costa Rica, but he takes advantage of this to use tactics that would be illegal and unethical for law enforcement inside the U.
Ivan tells Richie that everyone in the organization ends up confronted by Shavers at some point. Over time, Ivan's organization is revealed to be less than ethical.
He sends Richie to bribe Costa Rica gaming director Herrera with too small a payment, which leads to Richie being beaten. Ivan tells him it comes with the territory of such a lucrative career.
When Richie tries to leave the country, Shavers has drugs planted in his bag and offers to overlook it if Richie agrees to cooperate.
A local police officer reveals that the police dislike Ivan but that he would buy his way out of any trouble and destroy whoever tried to take him down.
Richie's friend Andrew Cronin, who works on the software design for Ivan, suggests that Ivan is running a Ponzi scheme ; the players' accounts have no actual money, and Ivan uses the money as his own bank account, keeping just enough to allow players to cash out when they need to.
Aware that Richie might be wanting out, Ivan buys the massive poker debts of Richie's father and brings him to Costa Rica, using him as a hostage.
Ivan throws Herrera and his bodyguard into the river to get eaten by the crocodiles, but pulls them out before they are eaten. There's nothing really intriguing about his character, and the concept of wanting to gamble to get his tuition just doesn't strike the kind of chord of someone who's desperate enough to get caught in this kind of trap.
Ben Affleck felt like he was acting off the script, and he probably made his performance more enjoyable than if he stuck to it.
The beautiful Gemma Arterton was completely mishandled as a stereotypical side-babe for the boss. It's difficult to say this could have been better with a better script, but I was never on board with it from the beginning.
Lane Z Super Reviewer. Sep 07, The film was disappointing. It is the same type of story of a young guy getting swept in to a world that is too good to be true, by a mentor with malicious intentions.
They didn't bring anything new to that type of story here. Very predictable. Ben Affleck is one of the best reasons to watch the film.
He is great playing the villain in the film. I would love to see him do more villain roles. Justin Timberlake was miscast here.
He was better in the Social Network. Emile Hircsh or Andrew Garfield would have done better in that role. Gemma Arteron is good in her role but has a little chemistry with Timberlake.
Her character reminded me of Daryl Hannah's character in Wall Street. Anthony Mackie was ok here. I could have seen Don Cheadle play that same role.
If you wanted to watch this film, then I would say, check it out, only for Ben Affleck's performance. Sol C Super Reviewer.

I can't let that go by. That's the problem with your generation. You guys sat around with your vintage T-shirts and your participation medal, and you never did anything.
Ivan Block: That little voice in the back of your head right now, it's not conscience, it's fear. Richie: I'll be happy to tell my boss that you are not happy.
