Layton and Luke are caught up in an adventure, when a masked figure steals an entire opera house and forces those in attendance to play a high-stakes game. The winner will receive eternal life, but it could mean death for the losers.
The 3rd movie by the comedian duo Erkan and Stefan is the least popular, going by votes and numbers of votes here, but I find it hard to see why. Surely no big art was intended, but if you liked the sense of humor in the first two films, you'll enjoy this, too. (If you didn't, then you needn't bother.) The basic idea is: put the two chaos mongers out of their familiar environment and onto a luxurious cruise ship. Andrea Sawatzki is stunning as she plays the evil woman who wants to kill show-master Hardy Flanders and blame it on Erkan and Stefan which turns a dream voyage into a terror trip. Erkan and Stefan are playing 2 roles each as they also appear as two old gentlemen, obviously quoting Waldorf and Statler from the Muppet Show. I liked the sarcastic opening scenes of the TV quiz show, where everything is manipulated and candidates are willing to be humiliated again and again, just to get a "surprise prize". Silliness not without a grain of truth. "Der Tod kommt krass" is cheap fun, but still fun, and lets 90 minutes pass quickly.
