Consequence of Sound
Equal parts Big Oil message movie and melodramatic character study, The Runner gets so close to depth that it's weirdly frustrating to see it fail.

Chicago Sun-Times
The Runner never approaches the keen insight and social satire of political films such as The Candidate, Primary Colors or Bulworth.
August 27, 2015
Despite its potentially juicy political premise and Nic Cage's relatively solid performance - more on that later - Austin Stark's The Runner ends up being a poor-man's version of politically-charged TV shows such as House of Cards and Scandal.

Los Angeles Times
A hollow, listless political drama that could have been a contender.

Common Sense Media
Slow-moving political drama has strong language, some sex.

Radio Times
Although first-time writer/director Austin Stark has his heart in the right place and Cage eschews his trademark zaniness, it's only watchable rather than gripping.

... contains a fair amount of cynicism toward media sensationalism and the political system, yet by always focusing on the politicians instead of the working-class Gulf Coast residents ... the film indulges in that which it condemns.

Seattle Times
Cage's performance is as fuzzy as his character's sense of bearings.

Time Out
Everyone loves Nicolas Cage the bug-eyed lunatic. Nicolas Cage the serious actor, that's a tougher sell.

Hollywood Reporter
Stark repeatedly squanders the decent supporting cast, revealing scant backstory that would enhance the often vague character motivation on display.
August 07, 2015
These plot elements, and the actors, have all the makings of a truly juicy and thought-provoking political melodrama. So it's dispiriting to see filmmaker Stark create such a weird, jagged hash out of them.
