Only of love, I will kill
24 July 2000 | by amikus2000See all my reviews

After the comedies in the reunificated Germany had been successful other movies could have been made. In Action Genre 'Die Sieger' (with Herbert Knaup, Hannes Jaennicke and Heinz Hoenig, 1994) and this movie have been realized. Jaennicke and Hoenig (Boot/Boat) show their talents waiting for Hollywood. For Till Schweiger, G. John, G. Otto and C-O. Rudolph (James Bond) had got their chances, both are waiting for it. Here the taxi-driver Mrs Riemann plays a role designed for herself and fulfilling it to the best, rational and wild. Hoenig plays the cool sadist like in many roles. Jaennicke can show his talent to seduce spectators. The plot is good and surprising, and is inviting to watch.
