Storyline

The story bases on four Finnish brothers, nicknamed 'the Eura Daltons' who received nation-wide notoriety for tearing gas pumps apart when they needed cash. The cast is an impressive one: the brothers are portrayed by Peter Franzen, Lauri Nurkse, Niko Saarela and Jasper Pääkkönen while their really evil father is played by Vesa-Matti Loiri, one of the grand old men of Finnish cinema.

A Disappointment
4 August 2003 | by (Tampere, Finland) – See all my reviews

Well for a start, I hated the irritating cutting in this film. The film just has too many cuts that try to be cool, but are not. The film has too many camera shakes too, especially in the first half.

Acting is decent, but definitely not good. It gets better towards the end (like every aspect in the film) when Vesa-Matti Loiri returns home. Perhaps the director is to be blamed, because this film has good actors but they pretty much suck here. And the factitious dialogue does not help there either.

The dialogue has some jokes but none of them are funny. The dialogue in the whole is pretty childish and amateur like. All the TV spots basically look like a joke. And the cops are way too stupid and the Chief Constable looks and speaks like he hasn't slept in weeks. The cops just have too much trouble counting 1+1.

Though I liked Aleksi Mäkelä's film Häjyt very much, I don't like his work in this one and I don't understand how someone can give this five stars.

My rating: ** / ***** : 5 / 10

If you want good directing, acting and excellent cutting in a finnish film, watch Bad Luck Love
