They didn't keep their promise, I'm afraid
8 July 2004 | by missmarmiteSee all my reviews

I can't remember if I read something or if I heard or saw an interview, somewhere the author and/ or the producer of Sams (the first film) said, if they are going to do a second one, they will take care and make it good, the same quality as the first film, because they don't want to do a second film just for the money.

So far, so good.

Last week I watched "Sams in Gefahr" on DVD. What shall I say... they didn't quite keep their promise, I'm afraid. The film is funny, full of action, good ideas, nicely set again in Bamberg, some great new characters, but...

The biggest mistake was to replace Aglaia Szyszkowitz. Full stop.

About the rest, the film just doesn't work the same way the first one did. Everything in the first was new, the Sams itself, the way it makes wishes come true, the way they have to be wished, the way Herr Taschenbier is treated by people around him and so on. Everything was a novelty.

Now with the second film all this is old news. We know now how all this works. To simply repeat it in a different manner or more or at a bigger scale, doesn't work. It works for people who haven't seen the first film, but who hasn't? The second film should have offered something new again. I don't know what, but something. But not a new Frau Taschenbier, that is for sure.

I know, I'm an adult and children still might like this film very much and fall of their seats because they laugh so hard, but still. They didn't quite keep their promise, if you look closer. 5 out of 10.
