Hungarian small time crook, 70 year old Tibi Balog gets out of prison after 10 years, but he didn't change a bit. When a Japanese crime syndicate hires him to acquire a Hungarian invention - the world's first floppy disc - Tibi puts his band of retarded thugs back together and the action starts. As expected, Tibi completely screws up the job and becomes the target of Japanese Assassins, a very angry Gypsie family and the entire Slovakian Army. Gags and action and no political correctness at all. The Hungarian heat is on.Written by
During the first 5 minutes we thought that we sat in for the wrong movie at the cinema: it was perfectly done, Hollywood style of the newest action feature.
After this intro one gets to a new level of the vulgar, exaggerated Eastern European humour one expects to see after having seen the first part (the second part is understandable without watching the first but I believe it gets better with watching both parts).
If you haven't been to Eastern Europe or I might risk even you haven't spent a long time in this region of the world chances are that you won't appreciate the jokes. Jokes are funny if they relate to reality and me and my friends: we laughed out loud at least half the time...
Great to see that in a short time after Liza the fox fairy (Liza, a rókatündér) there's another Hungarian movie that brings in a new, far away culture (this time Japan) unexpectedly to this action-comedy.
If you do know whether to watch it now or no: give it a try, watch the first 5 minutes, you'll love it and then in the next 15-20 you'll get the flavour of the kind of humour of the movie.
If you liked the first part probably you'll love this one: at least this is how it went with me. Enjoy!
