Only a smudge of oil would spoil whipping egg whites, so I can't give Run Man Run 5 stars. It's either perfect or not so, but I can rate it a strong 4/5.
Tomas Milian is one of my favorite actors in the European Western category, along with Cleef, Eastwood, Strode, and other notables. Milian always packs a strong punch when he delivers his performances. Milian's character Cuchillo grabbed me from the opening scene when he walked into trouble. That's a classic moment that I thoroughly enjoyed, and Milian held his character throughout the film. Donal O'Brien seemed just a bit too reserved. And the voice seemed pretty muddled. I feel Milian deserves much more credit for his work, ad I see that he is still going strong in the movie business.
Director Sergio Sollima (one of two other Sergios, the other being Corbucci) kept this on a lighter and somewhat faster pace than Corbucci's more solemn films.
The film transfer to DVD is terrific, with a fine mono audio and video track presented by Blue Underground. I don't know if I've done the right thing since no one else has mentioned it (like a Sixth Sense secret) but I've discovered that this DVD also has at least 3 Easter Eggs hidden. A review of the DVD If You Live, Shoot! also has 3 Easter Eggs, so if you ever get a Blue Underground DVD, look closer and you may find some presents.
I really enjoyed the script that was followed. It wasn't too heavy but wasn't too funny, like at least one film, "My Name is Nobody," if I can recall it correctly. One really hilarious moment happens when Cuchillo is strung up and has words with one of his oppressors. Talk about insulting! If I were the military official, I would have pulled an Indiana Jones on Cuchillo.

Run Man Run is a sequel to one of the great Spaghetti Westerns "The Big Gundown" unfortunately The Big Gundown isn't released on any format here in the US,so unless you've seen it on Cinemax or purchased an import,this movie might not appeal to you as much.
This is basically the continuing story of Cuchillo (Tomas Milian) the Mexican knife-throwing bandit,and his search for lost gold,with a Mexican Revolution spin thrown in.
This movie is a wannabe Leone type epic that comes off being episodic.At times this is a very good film but at others it drags on.Sorely missed is Lee Van Cleef who would have greatly improved this film,Donald O'Brien's character is a good one,but the chemistry was much better with Van Cleef.A decent Spaghetti,but way too long.

Italy cranks out another great western and further proves why they're better at films about the wild west than the Americans are. The plot on a whole isn't terribly original, but there's enough cleverness sprinkled throughout the film. The always lovable Tomas Milian's a Mexican bandit who holds the key to 3 million in gold. On his search for it, he's persued by just about everyone under the sun including bounty hunters, mexican revolutionaries, a badazz gunslinger, a chick from the salvation army, and his own fiancee. Milian is no Eastwood(that role's left to Italian regular Donal O'Brien), his hero is more like a weasley sidekick you'd see in a Leone western. He's a whiz with the throwing knives, and isn't afraid to put a bit of humor into the character when it's needed. The title of the film refers to numerous scenes where someone(sometimes himself) is telling him to "Run!". While it may not be as good as Django or Companeros, Run Man Run is a worthy addition to your spaghetti western collection. Plus it comes with a cool 60s documentary on spaghetti westerns and a 17 minute interview with Milian and director Sollima.

Run, Man, Run! takes its title from the song in The Big Gundown, with Tomas Milian reprising his role as Cuchillo, promoted from supporting player to main character and, unfortunately, singing the title song so badly that you'll pine for Lee Marvin's dulcet tones. The last and probably the least of Sergio Sollima's three political Westerns, it's a step down from the remarkable Faccia a Faccia but is still far from negligible, an anarchic treasure hunt romp that sees Milian dodging firing squads and assorted bandits, revolutionaries, ex-lawmen, the French secret service, the Salvation Army and his girlfriend: no prizes for guessing which is the most dangerous.

Sollima used the genre like a Trojan Horse and he doesn't abandon the politics entirely: the title sequence places the colors of the Italian flag over sketches of the dead and dying of earlier revolutions while when one revolutionary hero dismisses another's sacrifice - "Letting himself be killed when the lives of these people probably depended on him. And only for one woman" - it's Milian's amoral hero who remonstrates "But the people for Ramirez at that time was just that poor woman." It's just that here he's having more fun with it, eschewing anger for black humor and gleefully subverting the genre staples wherever possible. A gunfight is delayed so the crowd in a bar can place their bets in a scene with a great payoff, John Ireland's revolutionary leader's mother goes with him on his campaigns to make sure he eats properly and doesn't smoke, another doesn't want his wife to give birth in Texas, Milian's girlfriend turns down $3m to betray him but accepts $1000 because "$3m would be a disaster but with this $1000 I could buy a house and a stable and finally marry the son of a pig!
