I just re-saw this move, and it's just as good as i remembered it. I was curious of it's IMDb rating so I had a peek. just to discover that this jewel of a film currently only have 6.7 is something that I find quite outrageous. so I decided to write my own review, and give credit where credit's due!
I'v read a couple of reviews here, and I see the people who bad-mouth this movie just don't get it.. It's a (black)comedy so it's not supposed to be taken to serious. If you do take it seriously you'r in for 95 minutes of cynical meaningless violence. Well in that case this movie probably isn't for you. As for me, i found it hysterical!
The action sequences are a bit over the top one might say. Then i say:"c'mon c'mon, it's a comedy!", at any rate the surreal car chases and what not is just stating this fact. The effects aren't Hollywood-ish but still not bad for Nordic production, as far as i can see. The dialogue is a work of art itself. Some conversations is just random nonsense, but still just makes the character more believable. And some good linguistic "jokes/spoofs" to, unfortunately some may get lost in translation. With the absurd mix of characters, ranging from sociopathic to suicidal, some just plain insane, you know you'r in for a good pitch black comedy!
By the way I have seen "I Kina Spiser de Hunde" as well, but i didn't find it funny in comparison to this movie. So i like to look at it as two separate movies.. or independent movies, or whatever... just my angle:)
