Aussie boy's thoughts
This intelligent and well-crafted thriller’s twists are even more wicked when you don’t expect much of a surprise. Because although Run takes some complex and very original ideas and executes them in a way that they’re unluckily predictable, it’s staggering for how much of a pleasurable thrill it provides.
Overall, the result of this psychological mystery that was executed by Aneesh Chaganty, who wrote the tale with Sev Ohanian, is more than just a simple-but-effective. Obviously, the thrills and twists Run delivers will have an unexpectedly exciting impact on the viewers’ puzzle-solving mind, but the concept is also very unique.
Run only fails to pace quick enough to keep someone’s full attention, and the plot isn’t as gripping as critics have classed it as. But there’s great performances, thrilling twists, moments of enthusiasm and a hell of an ending.
