Storyline

[CONTAINS SPOILERS] A sequel to "Vabank" (1981), introduces the same characters entangled in a duel between a former safecracker and a crooked bank manager. Imprisoned ex-banker Kramer breaks out with the help of recently released accomplice and wants to get even with his nemesis, Kwinto. Kwinto calls up the old gang to respond to this threat. In the end, Kramer seemingly victorious heads to Switzerland by a prearranged flight to Zurich. First, however, they have to cross the German border. They bribe the Nazi border guards, board the plane and land in what they think is Switzerland, only to find out that the film-team has outwitted them with sets and actors and the police is waiting for them.

Goofs

Kramer had a plan of framing Kwinto by making him open the safe (which contains Justysia and money), then trapping him and claiming that he was caught in the act of robbing. This plan would obviously fail, even if fully conducted, because Justysia would testify that she was imprisoned in the safe, and the teacher would testify that Justysia was abducted from the school.

Routine sequel
11 August 2013 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

"Vabank 2" is a sequel that follows the formula of the first movie . It's not strange that in the end the movie isn't as half surprising or funny as the original . It's more predictable and there aren't any interesting new characters . It seems that Machulski (writer and director ) has run out of ideas . The movie is quite surprising in the first 40 minutes . Later , it goes into standard and predictable territory : a bait , a trap and a repeat of the final of first movie.

Still it's an OK sequel . There are some good jokes here . The music is as elegant and catchy as before and acting is still good . I would only complain about performance of Jacek Chmielnik (Moks) . He's overacting so much that I was annoyed every time he was on screen. In his defense he signs really well the Vabank song that appears here. The song is really cool and to be honest that's the only really new element here.

It's no match for the first one , but still a decent sequel. I give it 6/10.
