John Woo's Run Tiger Run in July
Optimum Asia have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of John Woo’s Run Tiger Run for 3rd July 2006 priced at £15.99. A comedy from John Woo’s early career, Run Tiger Run is a madhouse style, slapstick tale of mistaken identity.
When the estranged son of a billionaire is shocked to find that his father has willed his entire fortune to his four year old brother, Babe Steak, he devises a sneaky plan to do away with the heir. Luckily, Babe Steak meets Benny Shit, a penniless boy living on the streets, and when the two decide to switch identities, deliciously surreal chaos ensues. Legendary Hong Kong Producer/director Tsui Hark makes a guest star turn as a senile grandfather.
A barebones release, the film is presented in 2.35:1 Anamorphic Widescreen with only a Mono English Dub audio option.
