Did You Know?


Producer Spede Pasanen gave the control to the young production team and he was playing golf in Spain during the primary photography. Later he did regret his lax control as the production costs did considerably rise from the originally planned and even more when the film did not became the expected box office hit. See more »

Truly an amazing movie!
11 April 2008 | by Shaolin_ApuSee all my reviews

Despite being a really poor movie is this Finnish action orgasm a true must-see phenomenon. The catch of the whole movie is "name a cliché and we will put it into this movie". With some first line comedy actors participating in this product you may feel some strange surrealist vibe going on when you see people doing things you wouldn't normally see them doing. For me the whole movie was 'Vintiöt gone Rambo' - and that's priceless I can tell. For example you didn't know what the phrase 'amazing escape' meant until you've seen this film.

The American action movie genre fits really poorly into Finnish milieu. When in the classic war movies Finns target everything before they shoot this time they will waste all large calibre ammo without hitting a thing. But to avoid any logic of course we will see some sniper-pistoliering as well in the scene where Patrick (or Pasi) shoots the air off some tyres from about half kilometers distance. Also enjoyable is the hero duos pseudo-Miami Vice sociopathic conduct whenever they just be 'normally'.

I also found very amusing thing about the film credits, for the most beloved and admired comedy-guru Spede Pasanen produced this film as Pertti Pasanen only to indicate that this is not a comedy production. Hooray for Spede anyway, the film is really bad but it's artistic value is totally a close encounter with the third kind.
