Confusion, action... and well done...
26 July 2002 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

A really good Swedish action movie, directed by young Jonas Frick (then aged 25), who had a career in directing music videos, and later turned into directing commercials.

Entertainer Björn Skifs stars this flick as a chemistry teacher who is framed by local drug dealers and innocently imprisoned for drug dealing. In jail he is put to work in the laundry room, and is forced to befriend and co-operate with the other laundry workers.

As it happens, these are all teamed up since years and know a secret way out of the prison, and are planning a big hit. They force Conny to participate in the scheme, and while they are secretly out of jail in the daylight hours Conny comes across some important leads to the drug dealers who framed him, and meets the beautiful police woman Susanne.

Can Conny put things together... making his laundry "friends" fail their big hit, framing the people who framed him... and still have Susanne...? The confusion leads up to some really great action scenes...

The story is very good, the camera work, the directing and the music score is really neat. And a little piece of candy for the horror movie fan... in one scene a hospital guard is reading an issue of Fangoria with Jason on the cover...

The movie was regarded as a really great flick when it came out in 1988, and personally I think it has passed the test of time really well...

It was also one of the first movies that teached me to sit in during the end titles in theaters and wait for possible epilogue scenes. I saw the movie twice in the theater, but it wasn´t until the video release I acutally saw the entire movie... ooops... Now I have learned the lesson...
