Rate this:
Set against the gritty urban scenescape of Berlin and a pounding techno soundtrack, Run Lola run is a frenetic, inventive existential thriller that explores the life-altering impact of seemingly inconsequential actions. Beautiful, hip, and young, poor Lola has but 20 minutes to locate a missing bag containing 100,000 Deutsche marks or come up with the money some other way--if she can't, gangsters are going to kill her boyfriend. A pulse-raising race against time, the film employs a startling array of innovative techniques to present three separate scenarios, all departing from a single split-second decision Lola makes.

If you were putting together a time capsule of 90s films, 1998's "Run Lola Run" ("Lola Rennt" in German) would be in there. It was one of those hyper-kinetic, visually in your face, heavily soundtracked films like "Pulp Fiction," "Go," "Fight Club," and, especially, "Trainspotting." It's still entertaining, mostly due to Franka Potente (I always wished she was in more.), but very much of its time. Director Tom Tykwer and Potente would do one more film together, "The Princess and the Warrior."

An action movie that's also thought provoking! Lola Rennt (Run Lola Run) is for both the casual and analytical movie enthusiast (plenty of guns and plenty of symbolism). It's unique, it's intriguing, and it has something engaging to say about what it means for a person to have control over their own life.

A heart-pounding film that doesn't depend on car chases, gun fights, or CGI. With a collection of interesting characters, a series of deftly-interconnected scenarios, and a throbbing soundtrack, this is a film to raise your heart rate and keep you thinking, and a movie that could never come out of Hollywood. Well cast and well acted, in addition. A half star lost for being too short.

Lots of yelling. Stupid. Boring.

An absolutely fascinating movie. I loved it, the story, the characters, the twists and turns (no pun intended).
