Danny Dyer and Tamer Hassan are top of their game in this movie playing the characters they were born to be, smart talking badass dodgy London geezers! Brilliant story full of mild action and mayhem and lots of laughs due to the superb dialogue! All done on a quality budget too! If your a big fan then this is a must have in the collection! I was a bit put off with the film city rats as the film was very bad and the two actors were wasted but Dead man running brings them back to glory in a proper brit flick full of gangsters and dealers! Check it out.

DEAD MAN RUNNING (2009), starring Tamer Hassan (I'd never heard of him!) is certainly not one that I thought I would enjoy and so I put off watching it for quite some time. To be honest, the DVD cover was enough to put me off as I thought it would be all graphic violence and no story but, last night, I decided to give it a go. I nearly missed a treat.

It is set in the U.K. (London and Manchester) and has some fine British actors and actresses in it. The dialogue and plot are sharp, witty, and clever which you expect from a British movie, the characters are realistic, and the performances outstanding. It's not a comedy as such but it made me laugh now and then all the way through and I would most certainly watch it again. Considering the storyline, the violence, sex and language are pretty tame.

FAVOURITE BIT: Where the main character's mother is taken hostage and...well, you better see that bit for yourself.

Dead Man Running reminds me, in some ways, of the movie 'Snatch' starring Brad Pitt, Benicio Del Toro, Vinnie Jones, and Jason Statham. [...]

Man owes loan shark money. Loan shark kidnaps Man's mother as insurance. Man and his friend rush about trying to obtain cash and thus free his mother. Hilarity ensues.

Well, that's the intention. In reality it feels a bit forced as a series of gritty set pieces unfold with Danny Dyer and his mate running into all kinds of slimey characters from the criminal underworld in their rush to make the money in time.

The problem with Dead Man Running is that it's constantly trying to emulate other films eg. 'Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' or 'Pulp Fiction'. The mix of humour and crime can be great when done at the right pace, however this time it falls just about short of the mark, with the main players somewhat over-egging their parts and the story lurching from one set piece to another. If the tale were an extra 30 mins longer, it could have perhaps been unfolded with a more patient touch and been all the better for it. As it stands, if feels rushed.

In the end, it makes for a good bit of fun, and is worth watching. Dyer is relegated to a sidekick. The other bloke is good, but his dear ol' Mum is the star of the show for me, dealing capably with her situation as kidnap victim while her wayward son runs wild trying to get her freed.

Danny Dyer and Tamir Hussain team up again in a fairly enjoyable movie that fizzles out like a balloon gasping for air in the final third. Like them or not and yes their acting talent is limited, Hassan and Dyer have a good working chemistry and were made to make these gangster type movies. However Dead Man Running isn't simply a gangster flick, there's elements of comedy and even slight drama.

50 Cent plays the head guy- though it's no more than a cameo role as he simply bookends the film. There are some interesting characters here though- so we get Brenda Blethyn here and the excellent Phillip Davis. The story concerns Hassan who owes 50 Cent 100k, but he needs to collect the money in 24 hours or he and his mother will be killed. So Hassan takes Dyer with him on this adventure to raise the cash.

As the movie goes on it just becomes more and more silly- able to take up to a point, but the last scenes and climax are just too much to take in. East End geezers do good and all wears way too thin in this movie. However the first half of the movie is fairly enjoyable- some will love this movie, but even for its genre there are plenty of flaws, entertaining trash at its best.

I watched this film tonight on Blu-ray and to be frank, it was rather disappoiting, the trailer looked awesome and contained the best parts of the film which made me buy it (thinking it was top notch all the way).

The trailer was probably more entertaining than the actual film, because while I was watching it, it fell boring and just not worth it, but because I paid for it I decided to watch it till the end, and neither was the end that good neither.

Actors.. they did their job fine, Curtis Jackson didn't disappoint but could've done better, I suppose.

About the Blu-ray, the video quality was excellent, audio very good, but there's no subs, subtitles would've been useful at certain times to understand what the characters were saying (mumbling).

It wasn't a horrible film but neither did I enjoy it, okay perhaps.

Having missed this at the flicks, and having been waiting to see it, it's proved a real disapointment. Having liked both lead actors (Danny and Tamer) former work (the business for example is, well, the business). I really was expecting a good film here, the story set up, actors and of course the trailer promised so much.

Sadly this is more like dead man walking, in that it's actually quite a slow in pace, even for such a short (less than 90 minutes) film, and as for all the dvd sleeve quotes of action, well there is very little. There is the occasional witty, lock stock style banter from the leads, but the film comes across as a mix of thriller comedy, that doe'snt quite fit the bill in either catogory.

Dead man jumps from scene to scene, in which Danny and Tamer come up with ideas to make a quick score (to pay back Mr 50 cent, of whom they owe megabucks). These mostly include fighting, drug dealing and out right stealing.

The real frustration of the film is that the elements are there, a strong cast, nice simple plot, gritty British locations,and the occasional quote happy script, but all to no avail.

In the hands of fast, style heavy directors like Guy Richie or Nick Love this could have been a real sparkling comedy/thriller, but unfortuanatly it's a pedestrian movie that trys too hard to be familiar and much too hard to please, lacking any original style or sense of pace and that little bit of zest that makes other Brit films classics.
