Usual Spang-Olsen recipe.., 26 May 2004
Author: filmfreak-5 from Denmark

Well, I must say I like the films by Lasse Spang-Olsen and I am one of those who think that Kim Bodnia is without a shred of doubt one of the finest actors in Denmark (Jens Okking being the king, but he is also in this flick! Nice!)..

Naturally, as I love these films I had to see this aswell and yes, I was entertained, absolutely, but the film left me wishing for some new surprises. All these Bodnia/Spang co-productions looks to much alike but the jokes and happenings are nearly all the same - also it is very clear that Spang-Olsen is not a director, but a stuntman. It all has to be explosions without cause - the film ends with a big showdown (would you have guessed?) with a lot of explosions, but it is only for effect. None of the things happening in this showdown is connected, it is just random explosions as if they thought they should just explode enough and we would give up trying to figure out what was going on? NOT clever!

However, mildly entertaining. Wannabe-actor Rene Dif is actually a positive surprise in this film, he is probably the most fun of them - walking around senselessly, no memory..

Watch this film, but don't expect new thinking or any surprises..
