Paul Walker (The Fast and the Furious) stars in the fast-paced crime drama Running Scared from critically acclaimed director Wayne Kramer (The Cooler). Walker plays a low-level mobster who, in order to save his family, must recover a gun used in a mob hit before it's found by his bosses or the cops.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This film runs with frenetic energy punctuated by gratuitous violence but sorely lacks in plot, character development and stylistic flair.
Running Scared exists in that world of movies where there are no good guys - just bad guys, worse...

Common Sense Says
Grim tale of revenge and fear. Not for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this movie is absolutely not for kids. It's determinedly violent and disturbing. Characters include gangsters, drug dealers, junkies, an abusive stepfather, a prostitute and pimp, and a couple who kidnap children to film in pornographic situations: all are explicitly indicated, if not shown on screen; one scene has characters in a strip bar, where a dancer appears in a brief full frontal nudity shot. Murders and abuses are committed with a variety of weapons, including guns, knives, and hockey pucks; characters appear in various states of undress; language is excessive (over 300 uses of "f--k").
