Just rely on your video game experience
17 March 2006 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

The second movie by the two Bavarian comedians, Erkan and Stefan. They discover an ancient dagger and free the beautiful warrior virgin Tana (Bettina Zimmermann) from it. Evil sorcerer Kartan, however, wants both the dagger and the virgin for a sacrifice ceremony. Erkan and Stefan rely on their video game experience to defeat the dark forces. At a length of only 77 minutes, the movie doesn't slow down too often between the gags, so if you have got the appropriate sense of humor, you may find this quite enjoyable. Excellent: Corinna Harfouch as the teacher who breaks her own rules to solve problems without violence. On the other hand, the performance of Bettina Zimmermann is disappointing. One needs more than wildly rolling eyes to follow the footsteps of a Michelle Yeoh or Sandahl Bergman. The parody elements are reminding me of movies like Stephen Sommers' "The Mummy", Harold Ramis' "Bedazzled" and J. Lee Thompson's "Firewalker", among others.
