    This film is like a video game storyline that replays itself three times with three different turns of events in a fast paced rush of excitement with a spell-binding techno soundtrack to go with it. The lead that plays Lola is like sonic the hedgehog that just keeps on running and running tirelessly throughout the film. Great fun...

    Transported to a world where fate and willpower collide, RUN LOLA RUN’s tenacity is one-of-a-kind; an experimental showcase of mixed art whose thematic strength comes from the unwavering determination and stamina of its titular character. With only 20 minutes to fulfill a call for help, Lola (Franka Potente) runs along the streets of Berlin, carrying with her numerous possibilities in her brief social interactions. RUN LOLA RUN toys around the casual dynamics of cause and effect with fortitude as the…

    Sorry guys, I didn't see the same movie that all of you were seeing. I thought this movie was pretentious garbage.

    First of all, who is Lola? Is she a cyborg? How the Hell can she run for so long without getting tired? How can she keep resurrecting herself back to life, a la Groundhog Day? And, what in the fuck, was that supersonic scream about?!? She uses it three times in the movie. How does she have this ability?…

    A high-concept thrill ride that speeds along at a rapid pace. points for the nicely integrated animated sequences and an infectious techno score. Definitely worthwhile, but the film still kept me at arm's length since can't really get behind Tom Tykwer's style. It's similar to that of Edgar Wright, but it feels too artificial and cartoony for me to particularly care about the characters and things that happen to them

    Very adrenaline fueled, race against the clock film that features a lot of our protagonist running to get to where she needs to be. The set up of having there be three different runs and showing the difference that can come out of a bump in to a person or showing up somewhere a second early or late. It's a cool idea, but there doesn't seem to be much pay off to that idea, just showing the three differences and telling us what we already know. The film is still relentlessly paced and quite short so it doesn't wear out its welcome at all

    I personally didn't know the plot device used in Run Lola Run so if the story construction will be a spoiler to you, then I guess beware because I have to talk about it. I tend to really enjoy movies that explore the whole butterfly effect idea, and this movie does it by showing the same events with only slight changes and then presents how dramatically that affects the path of the characters' lives. What's really interesting is they also…

    All I wanna know is: Did Lola's mother ever get her shampoo?

    But in all seriousness: Great movie! The whole "one small event can have a major impact on the future" thing has been done a lot in film, but this movie did it in a way that was very unique and thrilling. Would definitely recommend!

    As one of the more memorable European films from the late 1990s, Run Lola Run remains a pivotal and influential film. Tom Tyker had his finger on the pulse of the Western world in the 1990s. Almost twenty years later, it is clear that the film is a product of its time. Even so, the strong performances, frenetic pace, and the innovative narrative still manage to provide enjoyment and Tyker subsequently provided a stylistic framework for many films, including the…
