    Run

    ★★★★

    Run is this wildly entertaining, incredibly intense thriller that is, yes, very difficult to believe once you dissect it more and it is admittedly a bit too crazy at times, but it’s difficult not to like it due to its truly incredible genre thrills and one terrific performance from the amazing Sarah Poulson.

Doesn't knock you off your feet like the first instalment but has enough fast-paced freakishness to merit your time. Tbh, Matthew Vaughn should have written and directed this. I have no idea who chose this other director who hasn't made a good film. It's…
