Good action-thriller
9 October 2010 | by (Land of the dead) – See all my reviews

Run and Kill is another movie rated Category III (CAT III) by the Hong Kong film censors, so it must contains excessive sexual content or extreme violence, the only CAT III element in Run and kill is the violence, nothing more.

Run and Kill is directed by Billy Tang, director of some memorable CAT III's like: Dr.Lamb and Red To Kill.

Plot: Cheng (nicknamed as Fatty) is having a good life, married, with a daughter and a job. But his life is going to get destroyed, when is returning home he finds his wife having sex with another man. Fatty get's depressed and he goes in a bar getting drunk, he "accidentaly" hires a hit-man for kill his wife. Now Fatty is in trouble, not because of his wife murder, but he also don't have the money for pay the hit-man ! Now Fatty is going to start a violent trip in hell......

The first time i saw Run and Kill i thought that it was just "okay", but then, i watched the Austrian DVD by Illusions UNLTD films i liked it more. The DVD from Illusions UNLTD films contains a far better transfer and according to some reviews this version contains far more violence, that was previously trimmed, but i can't really make a quick comparsion, i don't remember of major differences.

The highlights of the cast goes to: Simon Yam (playing a sadistic war veteran) and Danny Lee (playing a police inspector).

Run and Kill is a good CAT III, maybe not with many CAT III elements, but it's still recommended
