Runner Runner Blu-ray DVD Review

Justin Timberlake and Ben Affleck star in this high-stakes crime thriller where the lure of easy money is the riskiest bet of all. When Princeton grad student Richie Furst (Timberlake) believes he’s been swindled by an online poker site, he heads to Costa Rica to confront gambling tycoon Ivan Block (Affleck), the man he thinks is responsible. But Richie will soon face the ultimate power play as he finds himself caught between Block’s promises of unlimited wealth and the zealous FBI agent (Anthony Mackie) trying to bring him down.

I'm a huge fan of Justin Timberlake, I have been since I was thirteen. He's a talented singer, dancer, actor and just a great performer. So when I had the opportunity to review Runner Runner, I definitely wanted to give it a try because I am a fan. I'm not really a Poker kind of girl, that's and action movies aren't really what I would go for it I had to choose a certain genre, but I do admit this was a pretty good movie. It definitely caught my attention and my husband seemed to love it. 

The fact that the main character, Richie Furst, set out on a mission to get his money back from an online company that ripped him off is pretty crazy, I personally wouldn't go looking for the head guy myself, but as Richie does he finds himself in a whole new adventure. This movie is packed with lots of action with a great story line. Any fans of poker or action movies should definitely give this movie a try.    
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received Runner Runner on blu-ray DVD at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.
