Subculture-comedy at its best!!!
30 December 2002 | by (Münster) – See all my reviews

Before I went to the cinema to watch the movie I thought that there was no way at all that it might possibly get even close to its predecessor "bang boom bang". But in fact it did. It is not as good as "Bang boom bang" but almost. As with probably every subculture-comedy it is quite helpfull to be part of it in order to really get it. I grew up with people like those in the movie in my neighborhood and I have to say: Just perfect! The bunch of builders and a nerdy construction stundent that star the movie transport the scenery and the characters of Germany's working class of the ruhr-district area so convincingly and at the same time so hilariously that I can only say: Go and check it out for yourself, you'll love it (if you can speak german though). It's out in Germany on DVD already with tons of superextra stuff on it. It is only a pity that the movie will probably never be one for the screens all over the world as its humor simply cannot be translated as it lives of its language and accent.
