Quite nice, not good.
30 August 2004 | by profit-5See all my reviews

The one great achievement of this film is, to make the viewer not notice the low budget, mainly by fast cuts and rapid camera movement. It certainly will keep you attentive.

During the movie, you catch yourself not feeling sorry for most of Max' victims. That's what I liked.

His breaking of morality (Kant is being quoted), and his arrogance are unfortunately far too obvious. That's what I disliked.

In the end, it is once again (only) a very paedagogic German film.

DON'T READ ON, UNLESS YOU DON'T MIND, THE ENDING BEING SPOILED OR KNOW THE FILM ALREADY!

At the end, Max himself becomes a murder. While this is a quite unrealistic character development, it creates empathy for the criminals, he punished so harshly. Of course, he dies soon after.
