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.

5.0 out of 5 stars "..QUALITY BRIT FLICK.." 28 April 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars British Wit 20 Dec 2011
By Valerie J. TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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. [...]

2.0 out of 5 stars Not happy = ( 10 Mar 2010
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disapointing 18 Mar 2010
By _andy
I have previously been a big fan of Danny Dyer and loved "The Business" with him and Tamar Hassan. I was expecting this to be a hard grafting gangster film of "The Crew" variety but was sadly disappointed. I thought the storyline was quite poor, and with little in the way of decent lines was disapointed with Danny and Tamar's performances. The plot sees Thigo played by 50c flying over to the UK to demand the 100k that he lent Hassan's character Nick who has just 24 hours to get the cash else him and his mother played by Brenda Blethyn who is being held hostage will find themselves in "shallow graves". So accompanied by his best mate Bing played by Dyer the two set off round the country to get the cash, thwarted on several occasions as Thigo as his operatives, steal and con the money the two are making. There are a couple twists in the film but nothing to write home about and the ending is pretty weak.
Overall, very disapointed, I think the days of Tamar and Danny as two gangster lads are over and they should move onto better things...

5.0 out of 5 stars ****LOCKSTOCK meets SNATCH**** 18 Jun 2014
This film suprised me to be honest.
The film description sounded Cliched and exhausted by other films,BUT,this film has earnt is 5 stars.The main 2 characters,Danny Dyer and Tamer Hassan give good performances in their lead roles.The film has plenty of Cockney wit and dark humour and there are many unforseen twists and turns throughout the entire film,some shocking,some funny.And a nice,unexpected suprise ending.All in all a good film and definately worth buying.
