Kill or be Killed is a leisurely crime caper, largely filmed in Mexico. Playing a sympathetic role for a change, Lawrence Tierney stars as Robert Warren, a tough but honest lug who is framed on a murder charge. Hiding out at a jungle plantation, Warren falls in love with Maria (Marissa O'Brien), the wife of plantation owner Marek (Rudolph Anders). Luck of luck, Marek and his partner Sloma (George Coulouris) are inextricably linked with the murder for which Warren is being pursued. The last two reels make up in excitement what they lack in credibility.
