Four rogues, who were best friends as kids, have one big problem: they're sitting on both sides of the law. Martin (Jon Lange) is a policeman, while Nikolai (Jonatan Spang), Ralf (Mick Øgendahl), and Timo (Rasmus Bjerg) can't distinguish between personal possessions and the possessions of others. When all four find themselves in a fix, they're forced to return to their former tricks against a common foe, Mr. Niemeyer (Rutger Hauer). Martin is not as successful, however, either at his job or marriage, and thinks he deserves a better life. Now he sees an opportunity to save his career by "playing" with his old friends on a mission that is so crazy that even the two foolish brothers can do some good.Written by
You will get your laughs but the film never reaches its full potential
"Alle for Én" is a crime comedy film that can be considered either a homage or a rip-off of the classic "Olsen-Banden" films. Depending on your mood I guess. "Alle for Én" makes you laugh, no doubt, it's funny and easy to watch, but maybe to easy. Mick Øgendahl is more or less carrying the film on his shoulders playing Ralf (Rasmus Bjerg playing his brother is doing a good job too), but the rest of the characters are incredibly flat and uninteresting. And why casting Dutch legend Rutger Hauer when his role as the bad guy is totally paper thin written and underdeveloped? This film passes due to some fun dialogue and scenes but the storyline and characters doesn't really keep you interested throughout the entire run length.
