Storyline

Micke is a total film nerd, who would be rather sitting home watching violent action movies than to be outside drinking and hanging out with friends. One night Micke has prepared to have an orgy of violent movies, but something rather strange interrupts his plans. While watching "Die Hard", one of the German terrorists from the film comes out of the television, and this launches a night of violence filled with known characters.

One of maybe five good Swedish action films
9 April 2005 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This was an enjoyable movie with lots of violence, and quite good effects for being an low-budget independent production.

There is a lot of cameos too - mostly Swedish celebrities who were well-known in the eighties, and Brandon Lee of course (he has two short lines if i recall it correctly.)

In English, the title of the movie would translate as "Sex, Lies, and Video Violence", which of course is inspired by the title of Soderberghs "Sex, Lies, and Videotape". At the time the movie was made, and before, there was a lot of debate in Sweden about "Video violence", that is, all the violence that could be seen on VHS videos, and how that would affect the youth, what measures should be taken to stop this,...
