Another hit from Lasse Spang Olsen?
6 April 2004 | by black_assamiteSee all my reviews

I was so lucky to get a ticket for the preview in Aarhus, Denmark, where the team behind the movie presented it. Now those of you, who know Lasse Spang Olsen, know some of his other movies: "I kina spiser de hunde", "Gamle mænd i ny biler", "Jolly Roger" (I know there is more but these are the ones I've seen!). So I was looking forward to see this one. I must say I didn't know much about the movie before I went in to see it but I came out and was glad that I did. It is as Kim Bodnia describes it (in Film Guide, April 2004) an action-comedy.

It is funny. It's one of the few times I've laughed out loud in the cinema but I must say it is not as funny as "I kina spiser de hunde" and small next to "Gamle mænd i nye biler" which gave me stomach ache watching it.

Story-wise it was okay. A copper is helping the bad guys in good faith, in stead of putting them in jail, while trying to do his job. We have seen it a LOT of time in English movies but not that many in Danish. Again I like the story better in "I Kina spiser de hunde" and "Gamle mænd i ny biler" than "Den gode strømer".

Big bangs?? Now there is a lot of big bangs i the movie but most of it is happing the last 30 min. But then a lot is happing!!

Acting: Well... They are all doing a good job. Nothing about that. Kim Bodnia is great as always. It is nice to see that René Dif can do more than 'Aqua Ken'!! I think that he is doing it good and am hoping to see more movies with him. Robert Hansen, I know from "Krummerne 3" and "Kærlighed ved første hik" series but never in an action movie, again not a bad word about him.

All in all... I think that it was a good movie; it was funny, some big bangs and a lot of good acting...

I hope this was of some help.
