The Hollywood Reporter : “Run has at least the advantage of having a good idea of ​​departure. Unfortunately, the execution is only half done on all levels: it is neither British nor American, the series lacks good development in the characters and a taste for mystery, this is is neither credible, nor capable of taking us in the guts, it is not particularly good, nor really bad.
