Run, Man, Run (Italian: Corri uomo corri, also known as Big Gundown 2) is an Italian-French Zapata Western film. It is the second film of Sergio Sollima centred on the character of Cuchillo, again played by Tomas Milian, after the two-years earlier successful western The Big Gundown. It is also the final chapter of the political-western trilogy of Sollima, and his last spaghetti western. According to the same Sollima, Run, Man, Run is the most politic, the most revolutionary and even anarchic among his movies.
When Cuchillo returns to his hometown in Mexico he soon finds himself in prison, sharing a cell with desperado Ramirez. Thus he's present when Ramirez breaks out. He accompanies his new buddy who is killed little later by bandits. Cuchillo learns that Ramirez once rode with Benito Juárez. The killers believe Ramirez knew the whereabouts of a 3 million dollars hidden by Juarez. Now that Ramirez is dead they presume he has bequeathed his secret to Cuchillo. But Cuchillo makes it hard on them to catch him.
