Then Tina (Sina Tkotsch) turns up unexpectedly. She was assigned to begin closing down Station 23 in view of the lack of crime, the colleagues here are apparently considered expendable.

German Kopps
16 September 2020 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Before you go crazy about "Kopps", it is the title of the original movie. A movie that unfortunately I haven't seen yet. But judging from the remake I just watched must be really good. I reckon I will remedy that one day and watch the other movie too. If you have or haven't and expect me to compare, I apologize in advance, I just can't.

Having said all that, the apparent good source is one thing, but you also need actors to fill in the roles, to have the quality to bring the things on screen that are funny. While humor is in the eye of the beholder, if this touches a nerve with you, you'll have plenty of fun. And rightfully so. A good german comedy, that works because cast and crew seem to have merged or worked in a way that make this as entertaining as possible
