Action film - Finnish style.
16 March 2004 | by Leffa-GuruSee all my reviews

This film is pretty funny - most of which is intentional, and the rest, well, non-intetional...

Tauno Palo has a dual role as both Max Östermalm, a CEO of a certain unnamed company and as Kari Kivi, an adventurer who has just returned back to Finland from South America.

Östermalm has been involved in some kind of shady business and is forced to escape from Finland. He hires a man, Kivi, who looks exactly like him to impersonate him for a week. International spies, nuclear threat, microfilms, lovely secretaries and other beautiful ladies and you have the makings of a great spy thriller/comedy. Well in theory anyway. The plot is not that complicated and I would advice people to see this film with open mind - it's not the best film of its kind, but worse films than this have been made.

The humour is quite funny - especially the non-intentional and Tauno 'The Great' is great with the ladies. *swoon* Recommended.
