    Paul Walker is told to get rid of a gun by his boss, but it falls into a kid's hands instead in Running Scared, a stylish action "one-nighter" which acts as a violent picaresque for both characters. Unfortunately, Wayne Kramer's style is more distracting than interesting, with dumb flashes to show how Walker is figuring out clues, but basically telling us what WE'VE already figured out. It's not that complicated. Feels more like the flair is used to hide low production values (especially when it comes to fights, which are edited to impair clarity), and I mean, this is a movie where the Czech Republic often doubles for New Jersey. Still, there is some imagination at play - the hockey rink sequence, for example - and Vera Farmiga (the sexy mom) has her own bit of heroism, but a lot of the movie goes for shock value, failed to kill its darlings at the script stage, and is too long for what it is. It tries hard, but in the end, it's getting in its own way. 1 month 3 weeks ago
