Product Description

Fresh out of jail and flat broke, Nick Kane (Tamer Hassan) is a desperate man with 24 hours to find £100,000. As the recession hits the criminal world as hard as it is hitting Wall Street, notorious gangster and loan shark Mr. Thigo (Curtis 50 Cent Jackson) arrives in London with his trusted aide Fitzroy (Ashley Walters) to make a brutal example out of one of his late payers. Smashing his plans of going straight, Nick is given exactly 24 hours to come up with the money or face devastating consequences. As a guarantee, Thigo s men hold Nick s wheelchair-bound mum (Brenda Blethyn) hostage, leaving him no choice but to comply. Enlisting the help of his best mate, Bing (Danny Dyer), the boys embark on a frantic race against the clock; taking them from the dog tracks of East London to the underground drug scene of rural Manchester, as they try every trick and scam in the book to get the cash before it s too late... Executive produced by football superstars Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole, and featuring a hot urban soundtrack with an exclusive track from 50 Cent, Dead Man Running is a hilarious, all-action thrill ride that ranks among the best crime thrillers of the decade.

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.

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.
