Not Billy Tang's best.

You go into cat 3 films with certain expectations. You shouldn't really expect a decent storyline or any great characterisation. Basically, if you've taken the time to find one of these films, you want gore and cheesy fun! In short bursts, run and kill delivers this. Though it try's to hard to be a real film and really just ends up embarrassing itself. The story is just about Fatty (Kent Cheng) Getting drunk and accidentally recruiting somebody to have his wife killed. (she gets caught having sex with another man). As you can imagine, things go to plan. Cue lots of running around and pointless, boring scenes of woodenly acted mush of Fatty trying to hide from the mean gangsters that killed his family. The film really isn't gory enough like the untold story. I don't know about you, but I go into a cat 3 movies hoping to be grossed out and shocked. This failed miserably. Their isn't any humour either. Such as any Anthony Wong flick. It can't even be passed off as a straight up exercise in nihilism. As the actor who plays Fatty just isn't a good enough actor and isn't really able to convey strong emotions. To conclude I have to say that cat 3 films simply shouldn't try and do story and character as this just isn't what they are know for. If you want fun, gore and a generally entertaining movie just go and see Ebola Syndrome or even Dr Lamb.
