Full of weird and wonderful low life characters this moves along at a steady pace in a fun and irreverent manner. This is sure to raise a smile or even a few laughs if you can enter into the ‘Alice in Wonderland’ spirit of it all and suspend belief in reality as some of the scenes stretch credibility to breaking. The script may not be the sharpest but it does get you rooting for the two friends as they gradually increase their funds by various nefarious means. There are a few twists to add interest, but it’s Brenda Blethyn who steals the screen.
The single disc loads to play, scene selection, audio set-up [5.1 or 2.0] and bonus features [featurette, cast & crew Interviews, B roll]. This 15 rating features no sex or nudity but drug dealing does feature strongly. There is some swearing, but not a great deal for this type of gangster movie and the violence is quite tame really. The music has a good deep baseline that rave fans will love. If you want a light hearted buddy movie this is worth a try.
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. [...]
The answer will astound you.
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.
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.
