“ I personally found the two lead characters to be rather boring and not once did I buy into their "issues", which include the female hiding the fact that she was a reporter trying to track down Widmark, a famous author who is trying to stay away from the public.
“ Enjoyable Jane Greer (Out the past) as a genuinely moving heroine is fine .
“Definitely worth watching.
“ Run out and get it, you'll spend a very enjoyable hour and a half.
“I know the story of humans hunted by humans has been in movies before ("The Most Dangerous Game") but "Run for the Sun" stands as a real little big colorful adventure film in my opinion, most entertaining and enjoyable.
“If you can catch this movie I reckon that you should watch it because it is quite enjoyable.
“Highly recommended suspenseful film - for its visual splendor and for its sustained-interest plot which winds down many arcane twists and turns of fortune for the protagonists.
“I quite liked the twist, I loved the big revelation monologue, but sadly the movie has pacing issues, a rather mundane cast and really really drags.
“ Exciting and suspenseful reworking of "The Most Dangerous Game" has Richard Widmark as a reclusive Hemingway-like writer living in Mexico and Jane Greer as a magazine reporter trying to find out why he stopped writing.
“ Jane turned in a taut, engrossing performance as an intelligent writer on assignment in Mexico.
“It's a very exciting and entertaining film, if you're willing to suspend disbelief.
“ exciting jungle film .
“ Thrilling suspense in this jungle adventure with fantastic stars Widmark and Greer.
“ Now I have as much respect for stars Widmark, Greer, and Howard as the next old movie buff, but the set-up to the chase goes on too long and too mildly to create a suspenseful whole.
“ I found it an exciting, spellbinding and visually engrossing update of Richard Connell's short story "The Most Dagnerous Game".
“ Exciting man and woman on the run film with a really well though out ending in Latimer finishing off Browne, without the use of a rifle, with the very bullet that was meant for him when he was a war corespondent with the US paratroopers on D-Day!
“ As Lord Haw Haw, of course, Widmark would have heard his propaganda broadcasts in England during the war.
“ Then he realizes it's Howard's voice - he heard it in World War II, as a Nazi propaganda figure (a British traitor).
“Gripping suspense yarn will keep you glued to your seat as you wonder how it all turns out.
“ It's engaging at first.
“ The picture gets adventure action , a love story , thriller , exciting pursuits with numerous odds , risks and perils and results to be pretty entertaining .
“ This film, though a little too long, is very exciting, particularly the last section, and will really hold the viewer's attention.
“ Aside from the abysmal Jane, that re- make is actually quite entertaining.
“It's a nice touch to have bad guy Howard actually WANT Widmark to hang around the place because he stops jungle life from being so dull.
“ The last third of the movie is an exciting chase through the bush, borrowing heavily from "The Most Dangerous Game" and "The Hounds of Zaroff.
“ I suspect the drawn-out preliminaries were to justify that marquee cast.
