Small Town Politics
9 February 2009 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

Vares 2 returns to follow another comical investigation conducted by a private investigator Jussi Vares. This time he is called to investigate an unsolved murder by the victim's main suspect who claims he is innocent and wants to clear his reputation so he can get a business loan. Even with no real leads to go on, Vares manages to get himself deep into the small town's bizarre underground and find out all its dirty secrets.

Characters and their dialogue are well written with no inconsistencies which is pretty surprising as the plot is full of holes. The direction and cinematography in Vares 2 are solid. I love movies portraying small towns as they are. In this case Pori was shown as a sunny, comfortable place where nothing happens and if you have ever been there then you know that that's exactly how it is. The editing, however, is sloppy, unnecessarily flashy and annoying. Scene transitions are handled badly and feel like the work of a second year student of a film college.

This is by no means Grosse Pointe Blank or Snatch but on its own Vares 2 is a decent way to spend an hour and a half. Do yourself a favor and don't take the story too seriously as it doesn't hold up well when looked at closely.
