The Runner Stumbles - fantastic movie. I will grant that my expectations were very low before seeing this movie. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with the movie online. The Runner Stumbles filled me with difficult to explain energy got me so immersed in it. The variety of dialogues, which is the power of this production, excites the viewer, especially against today's movies that are clearly weak and so boring. I can't say that I'm a big fan of Drama, but I liked it!. Now every single person can watch this movie online for free here.... Show more
