Storyline

Life could be just great for bankrobber Keek: His buddy Kalle is doing time for their last coup, while Keek has to retain the loot. Kalle will spend two more years in jail, so Keek is not exactly bothered by the fact that he has lost most of the money betting on horse races. But then Kalle watches a porn video 'starring' his girlfriend and he breaks free to take revenge. Suddenly, Keek is in desperate need of cash and even the weirdest scheme seems promising.

Underrated!
17 March 2001 | by (Yurp) – See all my reviews

For what it's worth, "Bang Boom Bang -- Ein todsicheres Ding" (BBB) is excellent, much better than many other German movies of that time. And finally, a German offering that is genuinely funny, without being silly or childish (like 99% of German comedies such as the "Otto Film" series and other comic catastrophies).

What I find remarkable about BBB is that it casts a number of actors in "out of character" roles, such as Diether Krebs (normally he plays a fat nerd, such as in the "Sketchup" TV series) and Martin Semmelrogge (normally he plays an evil - scary part, here he is a retarded wannabe - gangster). In BBB both of them are able to show their true potential. Unfortunately it came a bit too late for Diether Krebs -- he passed away shortly after the movie was released.

I have one (minor) criticism though -- Alexandra Neldel. She is cute and everybody's dream girl friend, but let's face it: she can't act for toffee. Her usual field of work are cheap soap operas where looks are more important than talent, so she is clearly out of place in a quality movie such as BBB.
