Having a good time for no reason in fu#$ing Afghanistan
I bought this film from the cheap shelf at the store, and actually thought I had bought Zero Dark Thirty, surprised that it was so cheap already! Even the cover, not only the title, is very much alike the Academy Award winning picture. And it's not the cover shown her, but one really like Thirty. Retrospectively I could find this title almost pornographic, but it aims at an alternative version of the greatest American achievement in their war history. The title of this review is a connection of to quotes from the film.
But then this is a comedy on a very low budget. I was really fooled. I had never heard about this, but nevertheless had to see it. And, if you wonder, it's quit funny, but could probably use with a sharper manuscript.
The second part of this film is much funnier than the first half, so don't give up. Production value is very good to be such a low budget movie.
Belvis Bash is of course a B-artist, which name is playing on both Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash, but his real name is Walter, is invited, to say it mildly, to Afghanistan to play. Belvis is played by Lex Lvovsky, which is both director and writer of his. Usually no good combination. The actors at doing great, Corey Feldman is a high point acting as a comedian.
The film is playing with prejudice, bad taste, cultural differences and Americanism, and really has it's moments. It's no laugh out loud film. But it's difficult to satisfy audience with this, and making a whole feature instead of some jokes are almost impossible to succeed with.
The funniest part of the movie is a discussion about Islam and Jewism after 45 minutes, which really is good. It's killed off with a ballad which is not meant to be funny. After 58 minutes we have another high point. From there and out the film is way funnier than the start. The "car chase" which camel is fabulous.
This is fa better than the average American comedy.
