Tomme tønner starts with our hero Ali (Bashir) coming out of a jail in Oslo, where his two friends are waiting, and he declares he have have a plan, in Egon Olsen style. The gang of three are likable people who screws things up all the time.
Tomme tønner is well made, but it's both too short and too long. The movie is funny at times, especially the scenes with the three main characters. Also Bjørn Sundquist and the pair Kim Bodnia/Slavko Labovic are very good.
Bodnia and Sundquist have a Hopper-Walken meeting (as seen in True Romance) that should've lasted much longer. The Dane acts like Tony Soprano - calm at times, mad at times - best shown in his meeting with the transport manager (Børresen) at a finer restaurant.
The romance story between Ali and Yasmin (Skavlan) was boring and out of place. Also the constant reminder of what've happened earlier in the movie was extremely annoying. It's not like it's a four hour movie - it's 83 minutes! The part where Fido (Hellum) was stopped by the police woman (Lene Alexandra Øien) was also meaningless, and I can only think of one reason why Skavlan and Øien are in this movie: Eye-candy.
