Storyline

Concluding with Bückling: Frederick Schopner (Volker Bruch) is fed up with the fact that his so-called team colleagues have the laurels for his ideas. At the upcoming outdoor company event, he is finally able to give the three distinguished egomanians a lesson in "High Performance". But team optimization in the Hochseilgarten was yesterday. PR manager Vanessa Kramer (Lavinia Wilson) wants to land a press coup and is based on unusual methods: she lets a perfect hostage take place - however, from detached actors. For the two spaghetti Western actors, nothing is closer than to improve their salary with real ransom and real weapons. While Vanessa is doing everything to cover up the breakdown in front of her boss (Hanns Zischler) and the media representatives present, the inexperienced hostesses have to deal with quite different problems: how to make it clear to the successful managers that they are no longer in an ingenious Rolling game?

But by the numbers
24 April 2017 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Which makes sense for a company movie like this. But in this case it's also very predictable in trying to show how society is working. It's a noble effort and it's really nice to see a movie trying to entertain and make a statement, politically and socially. But apart from not telling us anything new, by serving clichés all around, it also loses any edge and suspension.

The actors are decent and they do their best with the things they get handed too. It's not a bad movie, especially with as I stated before the message it carries. But it could've been a lot better if it didn't rely on the usual. The jokes are hit and miss too. Not a must see
