Jörg Buttgereit back at it again!
27 February 2010 | by Boba_Fett1138See all my reviews

16 years after Jörg Buttgereit's last movie there suddenly now here is "Captain Berlin versus Hitler". Well, it's not exactly a movie though, it's just a shot registration, from 2007, of the Jörg Buttgereit's stage-play by the same name.

For those who aren't familiar with Jörg Buttgereit's work, his works as a director are just, well, odd. His movies make him seem like a person who enjoys necrophilia, death and violence. His movies "Schramm", "Nekromantik" and "Der Todesking", among others, all show this. While "Captain Berlin versus Hitler" is a movie that doesn't feature any of these horrible and disgusting themes in it, it is still a movie that can be seen and described as an odd one but in a sort of good and campy fun way.

The movie is deliberately campy, with hilarious fake looking sets and completely exaggerated characters. What other movie can bring Hitler, Dracula and a superhero together?

While the movie is fun to watch, it also isn't really anything more than that. Because of the fact that this movie is just a filmed registration of a stage-play performance make this movie a far from an impressive looking one, although they tried to spice things up a little by adding in some comic book effects and a fun musical score, during its post-production.

There is of course very little to the story and you can tell the story its only purpose is to be fun and bring entertainment. There isn't anything too clever or renewing about the story, other than the fact that it's a German production that in essence is making fun of Nazi's.

The character of Captain Berlin by the way already got created by Jörg Buttgereit long before this stage-play. In 1982 he based his first movie around him and he himself also played the character.

No way that this is a must-see, not even for the Jörg Buttgereit lovers but nevertheless when you decide to watch it you wont be bored with it. It's fun enough all, just at the same time far from impressive or original and clever enough to leave a great, lasting impression.

6/10
