Great potential for comedy, but....
21 June 2010 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Kommissarie Späck, Sweden's first police parody falls short on so many levels. The good news is the cast and the first act. Both the cast and the entire first act is firing on all cylinders, specifically the male main characters are more than just great, Späck's obese and goofy detective, as well as Grunwald's over-the-top tough and angry partner, make the movie worth the entrance fee. The film starts off really good with its comic elements and it does so in an amazing pace, but unfortunately the pace never gets geared down and remains on the same level of ADHDisteria for the rest of the film. After a while, say half an hour into the story, it gets tiresome, and no matter how funny the main characters are, you just don't care to crack another big smile when every joke is being force fed without reflection. That's not the bad news, the bad news is the messed up editing, at first you don't notice it, because you're laughing so hard, but once you get immunized against the humor, you soon develop a headache at how uneven the cutting's been done. I can only guess that the makers haven't done long format production before, because they seem to have emphasized too much in how it looks and very little in how it's told. It's a pity, cause there's a mountain of Swedish police series that deserve to be targeted upon by a really good long feature parody, but sadly, Späck doesn't hit that spot quite yet. It's definitely not a failure, it's just not satisfying. Maybe if they make a sequel, the makers will sort out the wrongs and rights from the first round, and make a fun film we're all longing for, I for one will keep my fingers crossed.
