Kick-ass cop movie
9 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

Action-packed cop movies are fun in any language, and German is no exception. In fact, the language lends itself quite well to a Dirty Harry-style Swiss narc who likes to stomp ass first and ask questions later. Strahl is an obsessive, angry cop who actually gives a damn about his job. His violent temper and obsession with busting an Armenian drug trafficker get him mixed up in the Zurich underworld deeper than he intended. This familiar and beloved cop-movie plot works great in the able hands of first-time director Manuel Flurin Hendry. (This film was actually his senior project for film school.) The action is fast-paced and fun, and acting kudos go out to Roeland Wiesnekker, who plays Strahl. If this is what director Hendry did in film school, I'll be looking to see what he does after graduation. 4 out of 5.
