Storyline

In good old days Franz Maurer and his partners from secret police used to live like kings. Now, they all must adapt to new post-communist environment where they are scorned and losing all the privileges. Some, like Franz, are like ordinary police fighting against drug dealers. But Franz would soon find that some of his friends are on the other side. Written by Dragan Antulov <dragan.antulov@altbbs.fido.hr>

Definitely NOT sponsored by the Polish Tourism Department...
14 January 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was surprised to see that a sequel to this film was made. Not because Psy isn't well crafted but because I didn't think there was anyone left in Poland by the time the credits rolled. I don't think I've ever seen so many heads exploding or bodies convulsing as they're pumped full of bullets. The plot revolves around the antics of a group of seriously hard police adjusting to a more restrictive life, blamed by society for the decisions of their depraved former masters. It's definitely interesting, with good performances (although those who enjoyed the wonderful Janusz Gajos in Three Colors: White may find him less charming here) and weirdly beautiful cinematography, but let's just say it's not a good choice for a date movie unless you're dating Aileen Wuornos.
