    NUMBER RUNNER is another indie thriller from Scots director Robbie Moffat, with the twist being that he went over to Utah to shoot this movie. It has the template of the usual gangster thriller but it contains far less action and movement than expect, instead content to focus on the interactions of the central cast members. Veteran bad guy actors Martin Kove and Patrick Kilpatrick play in support, but the film is plagued by unconvincing accents and dialogue delivery and a dragged-out scenario with few plot elements.

    I got a preview of this film and I was surprised by the appearance of some great American actors I'd been seen on screen and TV for most of my life. None of these actors are known for playing soft parts, but there they were out in the desert of Utah being nice to the two leads thinking them harmless. Then wham! Those nice characters of Harry and Ebony turn the tables and we've got a movie. The director is British so its not all bang- bang (the Brits like to use their cunning as they don't have firearms), but the on-off romance of the leading pair is as odd a coupling as you will find since My Cousin Vinnie. Fernando Romero turns in a sizzling performance as the the Mexican whore, while JP Gates, the dour accountant, tries his best to keep up with her scheming. In all, a good little movie made on a Hollywood shoe-string - something to watch for fun.
