One of the most awful movies ever made.
19 September 2006 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I don't recall watching any movie as offensive as this one, ever before. Not because of sex or violence since 'Sprængfarlig Bombe' really doesn't contain any of that, but because it's an 1½ hour long monologue against everything I love about movies.

The bad guy of the movie is fictional director Claus Volker (with the "V" pronounced like in "von Trier") who looks like a clone of Christoffer Boe. Sprængfarlig starts off with an intentionally terrible pseudo-artistic movie by Volker about a guy working at an oil rig like in 'Breaking the Waves', and rest of the movie is filled with similar spoofs.

Throughout the entire movie Claus Volker and the directors he is supposed to resemble are made fun of in almost every way possible. Only 7 people come to see his new movie; he is very egoistic and every time he gets frustrated, he runs to the corner of the room and screams like a wild monkey for half a minute. All "artistic" movies are ridiculed because, according to 'Sprængfarlig', no one wants to see them anyway. There is a "funny" joke about the Verfremdungseffekt and even 'Un Chien Andalou' is mentioned.

Most people though will not notice that but instead just talk about how funny the movie is. The humor in 'Sprængfarlig' is similar to the other Danish action comedies, just with a slightly higher amount of slapstick, so even though it's a meta movie, it doesn't fall prey to it's own charges since it completely avoids being "artistic." Since I like the movies that director Thomas Villum Jensen ridicules in 'Sprængfarlig,' I was somehow offended by the movie. But on the other side I couldn't help being amazed by the stupidity of this movie and its morale about movies not appealing to the common Dane not deserving any economic support. I was overwhelmed.

If you love "artistic" movies and have enough irony or if you just like light weight action comedies like "I Kina spiser de grønne slagtere i nye biler med blinkende lygter," you will probably enjoy 'Sprængfarlig.' I certainly did even though it was a very ambivalent experience.
