Run (2013) Movie Script

Come on.
Suspect is on foot.
I got that.
Have a four here.
We're in pursuit of the suspect.
Get down here.
Come on.
Drummond, Drummond,
are you okay?
Oh, no.
I'll catch him in the alley.
Where are you going?
Uh, good evening, sir.
My name is Sam Burns.
I'm a member
of the neighborhood watch.
I might have seen a young man
breaking in to your apartment.
Uh, I'm sorry, I didn't... no,
no, I didn't hear anything.
Well, maybe the sound
of your TV, um...
That's probably what it was.
I'll turn it down.
I'm sorry.
Thanks for looking out.
It's all right.
I'll keep my eyes peeled.
Again with the broken watches.
Wake up.
Get up.
What is this? You know we can't
make money off this stuff.
How many times do we have
to have this discussion?
Yeah, I'm sorry.
You know the rules.
And you nearly got caught by a
neighborhood watchdog. Pack your stuff.
But I didn't. Pack your stuff.
We're moving.
Come on, Dad. Not-not again.
He's-he's a nobody.
You got cocky.
That's why we're leaving.
You're jeopardizing
our freedom again.
What am I going to do
with the broken watch?
Who's going to buy
a broken watch?
Here we go. His paranoia kicks
in and we're packing again.
I know I should stop
messing with the cops.
I just can't help myself though.
There was a time I actually
enjoyed the change of scenery.
It was exciting, like a game.
Now it's just routine.
Keep what matters
and don't leave a trace.
You learn to live
light and tight
when your life is a hit and run.
In a strange way, he's doing
the best he can for us.
Funny thing though,
the fact we're thieves
doesn't bother me at all.
Just another place to leave,
another identity to forget.
There's a bright side though.
I'll miss that
math test tomorrow.
We spend more time in this car
than in any apartment
we've ever lived in.
We go wherever we want,
whenever we want.
For me, the only time I'm truly
free is when I'm running.
So, we're in constant motion,
'cause if we stop,
we're dead.
Stay with me.
Stay with me.
Why have we stopped?
A little change of plans, Danny.
Where are we going?
New York.
New York?
You said we could never go there.
Yeah, it's too dangerous.
I got to face what's chasing us.
Probably when you work
or a crime boss
and fall in love
with his sister,
you're looking for trouble.
I think my father still feels
responsible for what happened to her.
My mother was shot,
and died giving birth to me.
My uncle blames my father and has
been hunting him ever since.
He doesn't even know I exist.
I mean, really,
besides my father,
who does?
Want some hot tea?
That'd be great.
New town.
Same rules.
Same rules.
I got it.
Yeah, I got it.
The rules are simple
and easy to remember.
Rule number one:
know your world.
And it all starts
to look the same.
Hallways, windows,
exits, classes, faces.
More kids I'll never
get to know.
Rule number two:
follow your instincts.
You can't go wrong
with that one, right?
Rule number three.
Let me go.
Let me go.
Trust no one.
The fact I know the rules, doesn't
mean they're easy to follow.
Hey. Hey.
Shut it, shut it.
Not today, officer.
Dude, I owe you one.
I'll catch you around.
Hey, bro.
Thanks for this morning.
Mark Baltimore.
D-uh, Sean Preston.
Just Sean.
I, uh, I stutter sometimes.
Where are you from, bro?
Uh, Detroit.
Detroit? I would've
guessed Milwaukee but...
I've been there, too.
Hey, Mark.
You, uh, got that
iPhone locator?
The next time you let
them on, turn it off.
Who's that?
That was my sister.
She's crazy. Don't say
I didn't warn you.
About those rules,
should I follow
my instincts here?
What happened to her arm?
New fashion.
So, look, you're
the newbie here, right?
Normally I'd spend some
time kicking your ass,
but since you saved
mine this morning,
I'm going to give you
the grand tour instead.
I-I appreciate that but...
But what?
I-I got...
Hear this kid?
Yo, what's up?
Yo, what's up man.
How you doing?
Yo, this is a newbie. Deshawn.
Uh, we'll give you
the grand tour.
I'm sorry.
Yeah, you-you guys
are right.
Look, what's the first stop?
Uh, well.
Uh, what about the cafeteria?
Ah, I like you, man. You got
your priorities straight.
You know Jeremiah.
He's old school.
Betrayed the business,
betrayed the family.
This is just a misunderstanding.
It's-it's an oversight.
Saved by the bell.
Who's this?
Mikaley. It's been a
long time, my friend.
How are you?
Blast from the past.
You know what they say.
Live free or die, right?
Where are you?
Listen, uh, Lucius, I need
you to do me a favor, okay?
If you can arrange a meeting
between me and Jeremiah.
Arrange for a truce.
You know it wasn't me who
pulled that trigger, Lucius.
You were there. Just plain
old Luke these days.
And I don't anymore.
I wish I could believe you.
Can you do it?
For old time's sake?
I can't promise you anything.
You know Jeremiah.
He never forgets.
Do the best you can, okay?
I'll call you.
He's a tough little bastard.
Says he doesn't know a thing.
Could you track a number for me?
No, I'm betting it's local.
Yo, you good?
Yeah, it's nothing.
I just pulled a muscle...
Hey, have I seen you
in my building?
Ha. You know Squirrel?
Uh, no. Hey, nice to meet you.
Let's go.
Check this out.
What's up?
Bro, we don't compete.
We'll totally win this.
Wait. What are you
guys talking about?
These guys want to
compete like in a...
Junior high cock fight?
My, uh, ape of a brother here
did not introduce us properly.
I'm Emily.
That's how you only
stutter your name, bro.
It's nice to meet you. Me, too.
So, yeah, like you
said, we do Parkour.
We don't compete. Come
on, maybe we should.
gets five K.
No is better. Why don't you
guys just want the money?
It's not why we do it.
To fit indoor to...
You're too conservative.
Oh, yeah?
We'd be training the same way.
Wouldn't be any different.
The motivation's different. We
could really use the money though.
We could fix the gym up.
Think how beast
we could all get.
We could make a video like
those crazy Russian guys.
And also think about the new
freerunners you could meet.
I'm still not getting it.
Free ride.
Moving through your environment.
Free in your body.
It's physical art.
Like taking this whole place,
turning it into a canvas.
And you're the brush.
It's really fun.
Can be dangerous though.
He might hurt himself.
He's right. Unless you're too scared.
No, I'm not scared.
If you?re afraid, you just shouldn't try.
It's for real men.
He's right. Get down. Get down.
Hey, stop it.
Get off, all of you.
All right. It's time to
take him to the oracle.
Hey, Sean, this way.
You two get to class.
Only if you?re worthy
can you make it into the den.
Up there?
I told you.
It's for real men.
Now, focus.
You can do it.
Guess that'll have to do.
Piece of crap. At least you
didn't shoot fireworks this time.
Maybe you could get that money.
We could fix the lights.
See, the school doesn't think
we should share the gym
with other more noble sports.
We found this sketchy place.
And we love it.
So... you ready?
Show time.
This is the best on YouTube.
No, please, don't.
Hey, you should try it.
Yeah, man, you guys
cajoled my crippled sister.
I guess I'm not
cut out for this.
What about you?
How did you...
Oh, this?
Do you?
No, my mom would kill me if there's
another neck breaker in the family.
Grandpa fireman, father fireman.
Brother aspiring fireman.
There's always too much
disaster in the family.
I, uh, did this
practicing ballet.
How do you know?
Uh, 'cause you're, uh...
Way you walk.
You usually notice how people walk?
H, show Ricky
some moves, will you?
Why do they call him H?
You'll be like water, my friend.
Like water?
You've never heard of Bruce Lee?
Oh, the actor.
No, the philosopher.
Uh, no.
Be like water, my friend.
Shapeless, formless.
Like water.
You see, water can
flow and crush.
As water, you can
find your way around
or through obstacles.
As water, you can be
as light as air.
Or as strong as a bullet.
You know, I can hook you
guys up if you want.
I'm just saying.
Oh, I'm-I'm not.
I'll see you later, Deshawn.
I'm not gay.
Come on.
Hey, man.
You're late.
What happened?
Then what happened?
Just checking out
the neighborhood.
Know your world, right?
What are you cooking?
Wash your hands.
I found a new hit.
You'll love this place.
But you got to be careful.
Cops get involved, we're toast.
All right, this is the spot.
Don't be late.
Let's go.
No watches this time.
In and out fast.
No messing around.
I like the night 'cause I can
watch people living their lives
without having
to deal with them.
It's kind of like sightseeing.
Come on, Mark,
give me your best shot.
Come on, I'm here. Daddy's ready.
Come on.
You got lucky on that one.
Bring it back.
Bring it back.
Okay. Five bucks says you
can't get by me again.
I learned to cherish
these moments.
Let's go, let's go.
All right.
Come on, Dad.
This is soccer.
Some more than others.
Keep it down. Mr. Palermo will
be kicking your butt next.
Tony, get off me.
Come on, babe.
I'm serious. Back off.
Come on, babe.
I'm serious. Get off me.
She said stop.
Mind your own business, dude.
Okay, you want to fight?
Get out of my way.
Sean, it's okay. Next time
I'll bite your tongue off.
What, you like it so much
you want a souvenir?
Hey, hey, hey!
That's where your face
caves in, d-bag.
Stay the hell away
from my sister.
She's broken anyway.
How is school, man?
You having fun?
Just, uh,
just been checking
the school out
and finding out any places
I can get in and out fast.
I was actually
going to go tonight.
And also I'll check
out the neighborhood.
I was thinking maybe we
could see a movie tonight.
We could do it tomorrow maybe.
If that's-that's
okay with you.
It's okay.
But be careful.
They're still looking for us.
Lucius, it's Michael.
Listen, man, this is the
third time I've called you.
I didn't know better, I'd
think you're avoiding me.
You got my number.
Just call me.
Stay with me.
Stay, stay with me.
Maria! Stay with me.
Stay with me.
I hope I'm doing
the right thing.
So, it's true.
He's back.
He has a kid with him.
It's his son.
Hm. He's registered at the school
under the name Sean Preston.
Sean Preston.
Sean Preston.
Well, you know, Lucius,
sometimes life
has a wonderful taste.
I want the boy, too.
Alive. Understood? Absolutely.
I'll deal with it personally.
The last time you deal
with it personally,
I lost my sister.
I can't stand
this freaking thing.
Just a few more days.
No, two more weeks.
It's getting late. I-I
should probably get back.
Our place is on fire.
Squirrel's still stuck inside.
Come on.
Squirrel is still in there.
We go to get in there.
Don't be stupid.
I'll call for Dad.
I don't have service.
Don't move, Mark.
Come on.
Firemen will be here soon.
Surface will be hot. Be careful.
It will be too late.
It's suicide.
Squirrel. Squirrel,
where are you?
Firemen are close.
I talked to Dad and...
Where is...
Where is Mark?
We tried to stop him.
Josh. Where is Mark? Is he okay?
He's still in there.
What are you doing? Just
shut up and give me a knife.
I have to do this.
Grab him.
Come on. Get the water going!
Where is Mark?
He's still inside.
Come on.
Mark, Mark, are you okay?
You okay?
Dad, I'm in the shower.
What's that smell?
Well, actually it's me.
My-my clothes. There was
a fire at school today.
A fire at school?
Yeah, the smoke
got into everything.
They had to walk us out.
Are you all right?
Yeah, fine.
Anybody hurt? No, not
as far as I know.
How is everything going?
Yeah, it's good.
You right? Yeah, yeah, I'm good.
How are you?
I love you, man.
Well you sure learned quick.
One week with my brother and
you're already a pro. Emily, I...
You said you'd never
done it before.
Why would you lie to us?
I didn't.
You get bitten by a radioactive
spider or something?
I didn't even know there
was a name for it.
Yeah, but it doesn't...
Sis, let him breathe.
All right?
Look, Sean, man,
I owe you big, man.
Our lives.
That's why I want to give you what you
been dreaming of ever since we met.
Date with my sister.
Let me explain though.
Do I get a say in this? No.
It's a date, right? I can't
guarantee the unsual perks...
Okay, it's up to you, bro.
Come on, let him
know where we live.
And be nice.
Listen, I-I understand.
This is really awkward.
Maybe I should give you
the proper street address.
And, uh, use the front
door this time.
All right. Now you need
a nickname, brother.
Dude, how about "Balls of Fire"?
Oh, yeah, "Fireballs."
What do you think?
Or "Balls on Fire."
Hello. Uh, nice
to meet you, sir.
Is Emily home?
You bastard.
Nice. You got that
for my neighbor?
No, well...
I think that's for me.
What happened to the cast?
I waited long enough.
How did you know it was open?
I, uh,
I followed my brother and his friends
here once after they snuck out.
I saw some pretty
crazy stuff here.
In that stage,
that stage is where I had
my first dance recital.
Once I saw what they could
do that night, I just...
I just saw things differently.
There's no longer obstacles
but opportunities.
How did you learn?
Just by myself.
You know, you don't say much.
I don't really have much to say.
We move a lot, you know.
What does your mom
think about that?
She died when I was born.
I'm so sorry.
It's fine.
It happened a long time ago.
Come on.
I want to show you something.
It's awesome.
You first.
I, uh, actually already tried.
So, it wasn't ballet.
It's not so hard.
You can do it.
But how do you know
that you can do it?
Just see it.
Get to know your world.
Examine the setting.
You have to see
all the little details.
Where you put your
hands, your feet.
Where you land.
Imagine it.
If you can't imagine it,
you won't make it.
Then you just trust
nothing by yourself.
And the last thing.
Don't think.
You can do it.
Trust me.
I-I can't.
Thank you for walking me home.
I had a nice time tonight.
I had a great time, too.
So, what got you into running?
Uh, my brother mostly.
A little sibling
rivalry I guess.
What do you like about it?
It's... it's freeing.
I get that.
Your brother's right.
You listen to
my brother too much.
He said you're dangerous.
Not for you.
Are you kidding me? You can
see everything from here.
Now I see what you
were up to that night.
I'm, uh, you know, I'm
very sorry about that.
Oh, crap.
My mom.
I got to go.
Oh, here you are.
You must be Sean.
My hero.
I'm Tim's grandmother.
I'm sorry I didn't
come over sooner,
but who knew
you were right here?
This is you, right?
Tim just told me that
you were our neighbor.
I couldn't believe it.
I hope you like pancake.
It's his favorite.
I made it just for you.
Thank you.
Oh, I know it's kind of late.
I don't want to keep you.
Thank you so much for
bringing the cake.
I just... want to
thank you so much.
You're an angel.
You have an amazing son.
Tell me about it.
Can I walk you to the door?
I won't leave again.
What's her name?
The ponytail that's
making you all stupid.
You love her?
See loves a funny bird, man.
A bird that doesn't fly straight
and makes you do funny things.
Like bring somebody into a world
they have no idea how to swim in.
This has nothing to do with her.
It has everything
to do with you, Danny.
You being reckless and risking
our ability to be free.
Free? This? Yeah.
This is not freedom. Not being
able to live where we want?
To stay with who we want?
To do what we want?
This is not freedom.
Listen, Danny, I promised your
mother I would take care of you.
I would make sure that you stayed safe.
Yeah, keep me safe.
Do you really think she wanted
this life for me, for us?
It's a mess out there.
And you know I... I know.
I know.
I'm sorry if your life hasn't
worked out the way you wanted.
It felt good, you know.
Helping someone,
being appreciated.
My friend Mark,
he's putting together a team.
I could be part
of something real.
Something good.
He said I'm the best
he's ever seen.
He's right.
You're incredible.
You're special.
But that's what he wants
to steal from you.
He'll wreck you for it.
And in the end, life ain't going
to turn out how you want it.
When I tell you trust no one,
it's not a...
You trust no one.
Not because they might hurt you.
Because they will.
Did Mom hurt you?
Did Mom hurt you?
Your mother never hurt anyone.
We were young and stupid,
and I was careless.
There's just some things
you can't control, son.
They're here.
Just focus with me, okay?
You know the escape route.
You know where you going. Yeah.
You know it.
I'll meet
you there. Go.
Dad. This is a fight I can win.
I'm okay.
Shh, shh, shh.
Get inside, get inside.
Get inside, get inside.
It's okay, it's okay.
Shh. Shh.
Got you.
Lucius... I don't want
to fight anymore, okay?
You were like a brother to me.
I just-I just want to sit
down with you and Jeremiah.
'Cause I'm done running.
I want a truce.
Nice kid you've got.
Where is he?
Who's out there?
Put the gun down.
I'll see you later.
Hello? Jeremiah, I found Mike.
Local PD picked him up.
But the kid got away.
I'll take care of him.
Steward here.
What's his name?
Sean Preston?
All right, I got it.
I'm on it.
Thank you.
John, Bill, come back.
John, Bill, it's Steward.
Come back.
Four-oh-six. We're looking for
a student named Sean Preston.
I just got a call from local PD.
Hey. I need to talk to you.
Oh, wait, what's wrong?
There he is.
Hey, you.
I'm-I'm really sorry.
Wait, Sean.
I got him. He's in the gym.
He's in the gym.
I got him. He's headed
for the fire escape.
We really need to stop meeting
at the men's bathroom.
His the only exit is at the front.
Lock it down.
Hold him right there. I'm on my way.
Hold him there.
Why do you have Sean's jacket on?
What's going on?
Officer "Stewnuts" here just-he's
on his period, so he gets...
Emily, get out.
Go out.
You got one minute.
What the hell
are you doing here?
You mind?
Thank you.
What the hell
are you doing here?
You don't remember
anything I've taught you?
I'm not leaving you behind.
Danny, do you understand
what's going on here?
Yeah, I do.
You got to promise me
you're going to run.
You're not going to turn back.
Just remember everything
I taught you.
Your time is up.
I love you, son.
Come on.
I'll find you.
Dad, please.
I'll find you.
I promise.
The kid just left.
Don't worry.
We'll take care of him.
This is bigger
than what you've been doing.
Bigger than jumping of
balconies and windows.
Yeah, I get it. I know you
don't want to hear me.
All right. But I'm telling the truth.
All right?
What'd they say?
Look, they want to know how we
met and what we knew about him.
Look, he's a criminal. Right?
The cops are after him. He's a thief.
Sean? He's not a criminal.
His name's not even Sean, it's Daniel.
He lied to us, all right?
Look, Emily, I want you to
forget about him, all right?
And if anything else,
it's my fault, all right?
I'm sorry. I shouldn't
have trusted him.
H, don't beat yourself up.
We should just be happy
nothing happened to you.
He's right.
They're wrong.
No, I don't believe it.
But they have proof. I don't
care what they say, Mark.
I know him. I thought I knew him, too.
But it's a lie. It's all a lie.
Your brother's right.
You're all wrong.
No, stop.
Emily, please.
What are you doing
here, Squirrel?
What are you doing?
Mark told me to give you
this jacket if I found you.
Give this to him.
They say your father is in jail.
Listen, I don't want to
talk about it, all right?
I don't think you are bad.
Just go, Squirrel.
You're not a bad person.
Let's see if I can trust you.
Man, I'm so sorry.
You should go and call the cops.
Listen, I know...
No, you lied to us.
We took you in as a brother,
and you lied to us.
I know you can't understand me. I can't
understand because I don't even know who you are.
Who are you, man?
My name is Daniel.
Bro, you're
not even a good liar.
What do you want from us?
I need your help.
Look, it's a long story.
I didn't have a choice.
There's always a choice. I know, I
know that now. That's why I'm here.
I want to do the right thing.
Then leave.
No, I can't. I can be very persuasive.
Get out of here.
I ran my whole life.
For the first time
I have something.
Someone to trust.
Oh, shit. Mark, run. Run.
Get the girl.
Come on.
They can throw the Police.
They who?
There's no time to explain right now.
Well, they have Emily.
Oh, shit. She has a
phone with her, right?
You are going to call her?
We can track her.
Where's the kid?
I sent the boys.
Well, well, well.
It's been a long
time, my friend.
I almost didn't believe it when
Lucius said they found you.
I guess this time
it's for real, huh?
After all this time.
So, tell me, what the
hell brought you back?
Ah, never mind. It don't matter
much now anyway, does it?
You are a mess.
He is a mess, Luke.
I want you to live long enough
to know what it's like to
lose someone you love.
So, I'm really glad
they didn't kill you.
'Cause then I would have
no reason to kill your kid.
And I'm going to kill your kid.
And you're going to watch.
And then I'll take care of you.
Well done, Luke. Couldn't
have done it better myself.
He's Maria's son.
He's your nephew. He can't be.
She died.
I forged the documents.
I bribed the doctor.
He's lying. He's trying
to save his ass.
His name's Daniel.
She always liked
that name, remember?
He was born...
Shut up.
Who is that?
It's his girlfriend.
His girlfriend?
The girlfriend.
I don't want the girlfriend.
I want him.
Nobody touches that man.
He's mine.
She stays here.
I'll deal with him.
Don't you touch him, Luke.
Don't you dare lay a
finger on my son.
Come on.
What are you doing?
The boy.
I said the boy.
We didn't have time.
I thought...
You don't think.
You execute. You understand?
He'll come for her.
You better hope so.
Tell your men
to watch out for him.
And do not kill her, yet.
We can do this.
Let's go.
Dude, who are these guys?
What the hell, man? Look,
I know you said no cops.
We need some some
of artillery here.
I thought my father
was paranoid.
I'm sorry I dragged
you guys into this.
We've got to get her back.
Okay, let's go.
You're Emily?
Are you okay?
I don't know you.
But I know my son.
It's going to be okay.
I want him the second
my nephew arrives.
You can't really
believe that bull.
Maria died because of
him, you remember?
The truth will be known when
I can look into his eyes.
It's just another one
of Mike's tricks.
He's a conman. He's
trying to confuse you.
He's a petty thief stealing
garbage from the poor.
We've seen this.
Calm down.
You don't understand.
If this is Maria's son,
then Maria is alive in this boy.
You're the one who let her
leave the family for him.
I wanted to give her a chance.
A life away from all this.
That's what I wanted for her.
Not that you ever noticed.
Take her to the basement
and make her scream.
The kid shows up, shoot to kill.
Yeah, but Jeremiah said...
More than you think.
And if he does? Then you better
decide whose side you're on.
Come on, let's go. Get up.
Let's go.
It's all right.
It's all right, Em.
Let's go.
Shut up.
Shut up.
Joey, come in.
Joey here.
Keep the look out.
We're expecting guests.
Copy that. The docking
area is secured.
What are you not comprehending?
I want them alive.
This way.
Go on, go on.
Go on.
Son of a bitch.
What happened?
Whose side are you on?
Wrong answer.
Go, go, go.
Go, go.
Right here, right, here,
right here, right here.
Did you hear anything?
I don't know.
You don't know?
I heard something.
I've had enough
of you, little kids.
I'm giving you five
seconds to come here.
Five seconds
before little "Love that
girl" says goodnight.
Make her scream.
I'll put a hole in her
little pretty head.
All right?
Jesus Christ.
You okay?
You okay?
Who are you?
He's going to explain later.
We got to go.
No, wait.
Your dad's here.
Where? They have them
on the second floor.
Go to the roof.
I'll meet you there.
No, it'll be quicker if I take you.
No way. I can handle it.
I want you safe.
That wasn't a question, okay?
Just come on.
He's a mess.
Come on.
I told you to run.
Not anymore.
We're done running.
That's my boy.
You want to get me down?
Come on.
Go. Go.
Dad, come on.
Daniel, let's go!
Dad, come on.
I'll take care of them.
Dad, come on.
Come on!
Let him go, man.
Come on, man, it's me
you want, ain't it?
I just need to know one thing.
Did you love her?
Did you love her?
With all my heart.
You know it was me.
I'm the one who took
her away from you.
But that bullet
was meant for you.
Dad struck a plea bargain.
He helped shut down
Jeremiah's syndicate.
And the NYPD got snared
in a huge scandal,
that was on the front page
of every New York paper.
We're finally free.
And this time
we're home.
In life, there will
always be rules.
Rule number one:
know your world.
Rule number two:
follow your instincts.
Rule number three:
trust... who you love.
