Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: This budget-conscious, simplistically plotted and often cringingly performed crime caper is not quite as inauspicious a producing debut as one might have expected.
- Derek Adams, Time Out, Friday, October 30, 2009
Rotten: If Guy Ritchie lost interest while making another cockney-geezer caper and tried to get himself sacked by deliberately turning in half-hearted work, the result of his non-efforts might look something like this film.
- Edward Porter, Sunday Times (UK), Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: It has a quality cast, but weve run round this track too many times, while the script jogs from scene to scene without any surprises.
- Kim Newman, Empire Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
To be fair, as Danny Dyer movies go, Dead Man Running is better than average, thanks to his likeable chemistry with Hassan and a lively, if predictable plot. But Dead Man Running feels like something cobbled together after a cynical producer saw Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and decided to cash in. Except it is ten years too late.

Really good British gangster, adventure caper. Has some really well deserved nominations of stars from the papers.

Beleive it or not even though it has Danny Dyer in it this was by no means a bad film. The plot was beleivable, the action was generally okay and the one liners and banter between hkmself and Hassan was extremely funny. Describing Dyer as looking ' a bit Nooky Bear' had me tittering in my seat. For those of you not acquanted with Nooky Bear he was a puppet used by Roger Decoursey in the 80's with very googly eyes and was damn funny so I could see where he was coming from. Had a bit of a problem with Hassan, who is by no means small fighting a bloke who looked like he had been pumped up by a pnumatic tyre hose but still.......Blethyn made me laugh as his sneaky, dithering mother.
