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. [...]

A loan shark gives ex-con Nick a period of 24 hours in order to pay back the money he owes.

Up against it, Nick involves his best mate on a multi-part mission in order to raise the cash before it's too late for them both....

If you go to see a film featuring Tammer Hassan and Danny Dyer and Produced by two premiership footballers and expect it to be a work of art, you are not living in the real world.

The plot is simple, Nick has to pay 100 grand back in a day, or him and his mother will be killed, what Nick doesn't know is that he has no chance to pay the money back as he has been bugged and 50 cent wants to make an exception of him.

So he grabs Dyer and they go on a beano to make the money in any way possible, and the outcome is throwaway silly crap that works in a way that only a film featuring the two leads could.

These guys have a lot of chemistry together, and anybody who happens to like movies by nick love will know this, they throw off lines as if they are best mates, and they really work well together when ever they are both on screen,

Hassan for once has a good role, he isn't a gangster or a heavy, though the story implies that he was once both of these. Dyer is Dyer and plays the same tole he does in all of his films, but he does this best, so why change anything?

The scenarios are quite funny, and it gets sillier the more money the pair make, but you know that everyone will be okay come the end, so it's a case of just sitting back and enjoying it.

Some of the casting is a bit strange, Jackson cannot act, it was evident in Righteous Kill and Get rich or die trying', and the presence of Davies, Blethyn and Walters is just wasted.

But this is Hassans and Dyers movie and they make it work well.

Don't take it seriously and enjoy it for what it is, a movie for a wet Friday night with lots of mates and beer.

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.
