Natural born Killers fan fiction
2 June 2009 | by stephan-104See all my reviews

I didn't find much about this movie I like. This is clearly style over substance. It draws it's inspiration from "Natural Born Killers" and "From Dusk till Dawn" much too clearly. The violent couple, the showdown in a hellish club, the over-the-top violence of course, the characters (gung-ho priest included? Check! The cop who's worse than Satan himself? Check!),... It wouldn't annoy me that much, if it weren't done so half-heartedly. The characters are so 1 dimensional it's not even funny anymore. I just couldn't give a damn about ANY of the characters on screen. Most notably: Inspector Christini, the "bad-ass cop". His behavior by the end of the movie is totally out of line and completely unbelievable. The acting is plain awful. It's meant to be cool, but ended up to be just silly and stupid. In one particularly cringe-worthy scene, one of the baddies watches some TV with scenes of a lion killing a zebra - horrendous overacting ensues. Dialogue? Umm... Let's just leave it at that, OK? To sum it up: Dobermann is pretty much a fashion victim of 90s film-making. It contains all the stereotype characters and clichés you'd expect from that era of film-making without adding anything original. And the worst part of it? It's absolutely predictable and therefore boring as heck. 2 eye-candy points for Monica Bellucci, 1 point for a very nasty fart joke, 1 point for effort and 1 because I would have loved it, if I was still 13.
