Two weeks before its theatrical release a stolen working copy of the movie was available for illegal download on the Internet. This version of the film was 20 minutes longer than the theatrical version, without any titles and soundtrack. An investigation was started and is going ever since to find the person responsible for the stealing. See more »
Üvegtigris 2, as its title shows is a sequel. As it is a sequel to a successful movie, I had high expectations, as well as fears when I bought my ticket for the movie. In the beginning, as I was sitting in the cinema and the characters came marching in, one by one, without any order I was scared. Csoki arrived with his old motorbike, carrying loads of beer and shouted "Easy Rider my bro!" as in the movie before. It seemed it would be nothing more than the first Üvegtigris re-told. But later the actor-director Péter Rudolf (Lali in the movie) came up with bright ideas, which went over the standard before: A funeral where the mayor's speech makes everyone laugh, the two stock-policeman characters, who try to run in front of their own speed cameras to exceed the limits themselves as no one is around. Scenes like these make the audience laugh. The most brilliant parts in the movie are the bits which look like music videos a'la Hungarian style. Being a bit like a "re-make" of the previous Üvegtigris, the movie fails to come up with a totally satisfactory effect on the audience. There is one thing, however that has a brilliant conception: the sense of being alone depicted. The sense that time has stopped, that nobody cares. With all their swears, all their jokes and easiness, the guys are a bunch of losers after all, stuck in the Hungarian reality. Watch it if you liked the first part, forget it if you did not!
