All out onslaught
23 January 1999 | by (Hilversum, Holland) – See all my reviews

Most movies portray comic book characters as farcical and ultimately silly people in tight fitting spandex. The films are often a joke. It is amazing how Hollywood could, for example, make a total wimp out of Batman. This film is French, and made by the man who did Vibroboy. This is an example of how films should be made: this is an Auteur-film! Everything in the movie is morally deplorable, and therefore right on the money! Dobermann is not supposed to be sympathetic to begin with! The violence is explicit and highly stylized, but still gripping: the scene where the detective's head is scraped across the road is amazing. What do people expect: this movie is for a hard-boiled audience, and others can check out Disney if they want likeable characters and happy endings. If, on the other hand, you like a movie with balls and one that is not afraid to show sex and violence in the extreme with wonderfully weird characters and a director who knows his business, then you should see this and be amazed, from the opening scene until the final credits. A great film.
