Owning several aquariums, fish-loving Mumbai-based Guru makes a living stealing cars, getting them to his garage-owner friend, Ganpat Gajanan Jagirdar, and re-selling them through an associate, Sharafat. One day he steals a Mercedez and takes it to Ganpat. They inspect the car, find a bag containing Rs.1 Crore, decide to keep it and improve their lifestyles. Ganpat 'refurbishes' the vehicle, and Sharafat finds a buyer in Suleman, who quite unfortunately, recognizes it, and informs the owner, Fauzdaar - a ruthless gangster and money-lender. Guru is located, interrogated brutally, and agrees to return the cash which is still stashed in the garage. When he goes there - Ganpat, who had hidden the cash, has met with an accident, is gravely injured, and requires immediate hospitalization. While recuperating, the doctor finds that he has completely lost his memory. With rising fears of a meteor crashing in the city...

Foree and Haig are underutilized and laughable, but Pratt is good. Oddly this film doesn't start with any studio logos or credits....

Hammer was starting to look rather dated and old fashioned compard to the new wave of American films coming out at this time. Shame really as the film was in fact a fascinating glimpse of a possible more modern direction. The film deals with the occult and satanism which has a very Rosemary's Baby feel to it. A pleasent watch throughout with some great acting on show, notably Christopher Lee as the evil priest. The only real problem with this film is the rather silly tacked on ending which i gather didn't go down well, especially the author himself. All in all a decent send off from the Hammer series. Just a shame they couldn't come up with a better ending. 6.5/10

Steve W (gb) wrote: There is nothing positive I can say about Runner Runner because it is a complete mess with very lackluster performances. There is no denying there is a lot of talent involved here, but somewhere along the way something was lost. Furman proved he could direct a strong and intelligent film in The Lincoln Lawyer, but Runner Runner is nowhere close to what he had achieved in the past. We all know what Ben Affleck is capable of; he just came off with an Oscar for his work in Argo, but in this film his performances was completely uninspired. Gemma Arterton had nothing to work with here, but she accomplished what she was signed up for: looking good on camera. Justin Timberlake couldn't save this film either despite trying to put some effort into his role and trying to look believable. He has done some great work in the past, but this just might be the role that makes him stick to music from now on (or taking secondary roles). Runner Runner is a waste of talent and a waste of time for the audience. You will completely forget about this film the moment you walk out of the cinema because there is nothing engaging about it. It doesn't move you or touch you in any way. If fails to draw you in to their world and there is no suspense whatsoever.

When actually it was just the same crap again, though even dummer, unfunny, and worst of all, boring. 2/10?
