    I found this film on Youtube with Egyptian (and english) subtitles...I thought I's watch a few minutes (it had a suitably violent opening) and wound up watching the whole show,,,I was surprised at the (mostly) negative critical ratings on this one , but since I'm not a fan of the recent seemingly hundred and one utterly boring films Cage has appeared in for the take-home pay , I was pleasantly surprised that this film, being about a murderous cynical business, ( shipping and selling cocaine) held my attention because it never really glorified anyone in the movie -they were all in this business for the money- Why bring in any heroics , when the product itself is so destructive? Laurence Fishburne and Nicolas Cage were both convincing as murderous criminals outside the law... So it was a negative view of criminal lives... What's wrong with that?

    Terrible plot. Bad acting. Couldn't take it serious. The commercials made it look way more exciting than it really was.

    One of the worst movies I've watched. Devoid of anything enjoyable. Acting was terrible, story was terrible, the character development was almost non existent. Made no sense. A shocker.

    It's safe to say that Cage is now the "go to guy" for turkeys. Birdy doesn't seem that long ago either ?!

    i hated this movie so much. We did NOT need to see Fishburne jacking off, did not need to see anal sex and all of the other perverted crap that was put into this movie. I am sure lots of this garbage happens but WE DO NOT NEED TO SEE IT for you to tell the story

    Drug dramas are nothing new I’ve seen traffic and Sicario but running with the devil is a generic as it gets. The movie has a great cast and Lawrence Fishburne gives an entertaining performance but the movie focuses on too many characters doing too many things. As a result Fishburne and cage are only on screen maybe half of the film. The screen writing could’ve been better as well as the pacing. The film had high ambitions and it kind of shows but everything just didn’t flow together as well as it should have.
