Music? check. Hot Girls? check. Drugs? yup. Asshole producer/
manager? got it. THE RUNAWAYS has all that, but they're just pieces
that don't necessarily come together. Dakota Fanning stretches a bit,
but only because we've never seen her like this. Kristen Stewart
becomes Joan Jett, but dark, angry & brooding have become her
signature. Michael Shannon is very good as weirdo record producer Kim
Fowley. But the movie is filled with cliches & is as shallow as the
band's music. Don't runaway, but don't run towards it either. — Alan
