The 'New' Olsenbande is best suited for kids..
8 January 2005 | by KnatLouieSee all my reviews

What shall we do, now that the Olsen-gang has gotten too old for making their own movies, ah yes, let's make a movie about them as kids making their first big plans! A bunch of unknown kids portray the Olsen-gang, of course they had no real experience, so their bad acting can be excused.

Jesper Langberg as Hallandsen and Ellen Hillingsø as Doktor Rakowski, the two people who adopt Egon Olsen and try to send him into outer space do very good in their roles, and Ole Thestrup as Major Schröder is always great fun to watch. Plus I liked the small cameo from Ove Sprogøe's (the original Egon Olsen) son, Henning Sprogøe as Egon's Father, who's in jail. The part where Kjeld is jealous at Yvonne's boyfriend and he shoots at him with a tank was quite funny, but very unrealistic of course, just like most of the original "Olsenbande"-movies.

As far as entertainment for kids goes, this is one of the better danish movies to watch, but it goes a bit flat once in a while, but it's not that bad.

I give it 6/10
