nice film
16 March 2002 | by (Ruhrgebiet) – See all my reviews

Who likes bang boom bang would like this film too, but would be heavily disappointed. Succeeded nevertheless Peter Thowarth and its team Bang Boom Bang a funny and intelligent comedy. The detailed painted figures , came plateful and very oversubscribed therefore, but never flat and always life near. The new film however sets on a love Story , thinner figures and a fewer original Gags. A kind film nevertheless it does not have things to the cult. The stamping seeds of messages,and the ingenious timing are missing. Particularly weakly Thorwarths own play, its figure works palely, however it is also heavily beside Ralf Richter and CO to represent a character that is similarly concise. Weakly also the music of Stoppok, at all BangBB and Was nicht passt... behave to each other like the music of the h-Blockxx and of Stoppok.
