Brute: What are you, mister, a shit-eater or a fucking preacher?

In English please...ja ja, das is gut.
8 March 2007 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I don't really know how they have gotten Peter Postlethwaite and John Hurt to be in this picture since they have actually done some good work before. The basic plot is OK, nothing out of the ordinary, but the main problem with this movie is the dialogue and language. Since the leading actor, if he is an actor at all, seem to put all of his focus to master the English language, he sometimes reaches the peaks of Jean Claude Van Damme, and that is not a good compliment. The dialogues is also absolutely horrible and I doubt that even a cast change would make it any better. There ares some good filming, cinematography and locations though. And these things puts my rating up a notch. If this is a German production, please make it in German. All this movie becomes in the end is a try to make Hollywood notice them and it shows in clichés in dialogue and scenes. And for heavens sake. At least try to make the characters 3-dimensional.
