Unfortunately Polish crime films should be considered a separate genre. Most of them have 4 things in common: -lots of meaningless swearing (famous Polish k-word used multiple times by many characters) - some meaningless nudity, sex scenes out of the blue between characters theoretically not attracted to each other -invoking old days of communism with its secret militia allegedly still having influence on Polish reality 20 years after collapse of communism in Eastern Europe. -they are rather tiring than entertaining "Uwiklanie" is no different in all these aspects. Comparing any B class American crime/action film, I usually need to watch it twice to notice how stupid it is, and even though it's stupid, it's still enjoyable. Polish film "Uwiklanie" was unbearable immediately the first time I watched it. As long as Polish filmmakers will keep trying to mimic Hollywood instead of coming up with original ideas we will have to suffer watching more films hoping that one day good one will show up.
