High quality dark humour, 14 June 2003
Author: Conniption from Wellington, NZ

This movie invites obvious comparisons with Pulp Fiction and Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels, but that shouldn't make mislead you into thinking that it's in any way derivative. In fact, this is a funny, psychotic crime caper that's on a wavelength all of its own.

However, this film should be avoided at all costs if you don't have a taste for black comedy. Throughout the film the 'heroes' massacre their way, accidentally and on purpose, through the guilty and innocent alike, with each successive death drawing increasingly deadpan reactions from them. Harald (Kim Bodnia) opines that morality is completely relative, as 'In China you can just eat a whole dog'. And in the breath-takingly black final scene, all their crimes are forgiven by a... higher source, shall we say. Are the film-makers trying to draw attention to what happens when moral relativism runs wild, or are they just enjoying the mayhem along with the audience? It's hard to tell, but this movie is well worth catching as long as you can stomach its unconventional morality.
