“Running Scared”

Directed by Wayne Kramer

Two Paul Walker movies in as many weeks? I must be dreaming. Hmm, another “Fast and the Furious” joke would be too easy?Let’s see?Is it too early to pull out the “Eight Below” puns? Because “Running Scared” looks like a real dog.

Ohhh! Yeah, I went there.

Walker plays a low-level mobster who should’ve ditched the gun in this gritty crime-thriller. (R)
