After having seen Nitten Røde Roser(19 Red Roses), I found this movie, the sequel to it, and was interested, due to 19 Red Roses being fairly good for a Danish movie(from the 70's, no less). Unfortunately, it's not entirely as good, partly due to the story being far less interesting and the unrealistically sudden evolving of violent tendencies amongst the gang/group of friends. The plot is pretty good, but perhaps a bit unlikely, especially near the end. The acting is mostly good, and the eight leads(four teenage boys and four detectives) are all pretty credible in their portrayals of their respective characters. The characters are well-written and credible. The script is fairly good, but the way the violent behavior of the friends suddenly escalates near the end is highly unrealistic. The dialog is fairly well-written, the detectives in particular have some pretty good exchanges. The film does some have pretty good potential, but it's ruined by lesser direction than that of its predecessor, and a less believable script. All in all, a decent Danish crime film, but could have been so much better, with a few script revisions(the ending was right out of a Hollywood action flick) and some better direction(some of the early plot was really uninteresting, which was, in this case, the directors fault rather than the scriptwriter). I recommend it only to big fans of Danish movies, the actors involved and 19 Red Roses. If you're a looking for a good Danish crime film from this time period, check out 19 Red Roses, instead. 5/10
