Gritty,savage and violent HK thriller.
23 December 2005 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Propane gas shop owner Cheung(Kent Cheng)lives a happy life until the day he finds his wife(Lily Lee)having sex with one of his workers.He simply walks away and goes out to get drunk at a city bar.In his drunken state he accidentally enlists a Vietnamese gang to murder his wife,an event that is just the beginning of a downward spiral into hell.Without enough money to pay for the fulfilled task,he takes refuge to the Mainland where he hopes a gang will help him solve the conflict between him and the Vietnamese.Amongst that Mainland gang is Ching Fung(Simon Yam from "Dr.Lamb")who is about to make Cheung's life an even bigger living hell..."Run and Kill" is one hell of a dark and violent film.The execution of a small daughter of Fatty,which involves lots of rope and gasoline is among the most sadistic child murders I have ever seen on screen.Simon Yam is simply amazing as a merciless psychopath as is Kent Cheng.Overall,"Run and Kill" is a classic of HK Cat.III cinema.You can't go wrong with this brutal and evil film.8 out of 10.
