User Reviews

Pure comic farce.
19 February 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

The train in which Rene and Yvette are planning to escape on is targeted by The Resistance, Herr Flick and Von Smallhausen are on board after the paintings, as are The Colonel, Gruber and Herr Flick. Meanwhile Rene has managed to pinch four gold bars from General Von Klinkerhoffen.

This long series is ending in real style, Train of Events is another classic. It's pure comic farce, with all manner of crazy things happening, physical humour, great one liners, and of course the unexpected. The moment where Leclerc pops up with a message from Michelle is so funny.

It's funny throughout, but the final scene where Bertorelli tries to drive off with Gruber's tank is hilarious.

It's so funny.
