Before I saw this movie, I had seen the trailer several times and had read some comments. I was expecting something like a Pulp-Fiction-kind-of-movie or at least a action packed comedy.
Well, I was pretty disappointed. This movie was not too funny, most of the jokes didn't work, and the action was also not breath-taking. Most of the actors were pretty weak especially the one who had the main part (Mr. Harloff), from the weak actors I have to exclude the guys who played Alex (Jürgen Tarrach) and Honcek (Dieter Pfaff), they both did a great job. The main plot of the story was a romance between Mr. Harloff and Mrs. Hesme and the action only seemed to be added so that they could find at least some people who wanted to see this movie.
To be honest and that is the worst part about it, one has to admit that it was one of the better German movies, but this only shows the quality of the other ones.
I gave 6 points, mainly because it was a try in the right direction (if one had left out the romantic stuff, taken different actors, taken funnier jokes and made better action sequences, the movie could have been good) and because of the good and funny acting of Mr. Tarrach and Mr. Pfaff.
