In my opinion one of the greatest pulp movies ever. The only thing that hurts during the first time watching the film is the first 30 or 40 Minutes you've got to survive (they are quite boring) but in the end and looked at it as a whole, everything fits perfectly together and will reward your patience. The most important factor that raises the rating is that the film is from Denmark and differs quite a lot from American pulp movies, that means the characters outer appearance, mentality and the locations the different scenes take place in create an 'European' atmosphere that in addition to a really cool and funny story gives this movie it's special and individual note. Watch it if you liked 'Snatch' or 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels' by Guy Ritchie.
