A brilliant and funny action thriller,
This review is from: Dead Man Running [DVD]  (DVD)
I have to admit I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard Danny Dyer was going to be in a film with 50 Cent alongside his old mate Tamer Hassan, though thankfully this brilliant slice of British cinema put my worries to rest.
The plot is simple but effective - reformed con Nick (Hassan) is given 24 hours to find £100,000 by evil loan shark Mr Thigo (50 Cent) or he and his lovely mum (Brenda Blethyn) are blown away. So, roping in his best mate Bing, he must try every trick and scam in the book to find the money in time.
Tamer does himself proud in his first proper leading role, and it's hard not to care for his every step of the way of his impossible journey. The action is fast paced and the banter is hilarious, especially from Danny Dyer who gives his funniest performance to date.
I saw it at the cinema this weekend and couldn't wait to pre-order the DVD. Well worth checking out.
