A rather tepid and unfunny follow up of a funny film farce
3 January 2017 | by OJTSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the Jonas Jonasson novel "The Centenarian Who Climbed Out the Window and Vanished" as well as the following film "The Hundred Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared".

The film was both as fun as the book, was a big success both in native Sweden as well as in the rest of the world.

The plot is: A year has gone, and the money is spent, when an old bottle of a Russian soft drink makes a stir, because it so good. Already here we lose the interest, and the film is all about a gang of old people, a gang of hoodlums, a Russian daughter and CIA with the Swedish police are all after this soft drink recipe.

Well, to make a long story short, this is just like the first an unlikely black comedy in style of Forrest Gump, though darker and way more stupid, and filled with more stupid humans. Other films it's in class with here would be "Fargo", "One night at McCools", "Seven psychopaths" a.s.o. This film, however, hasn't got a book as a basic script, and this is quite obvious. The film tries to be funny, but simply isn't.

Where the first film three years ago was a good farce, which gave many laughs and the two hours went like one, this is just tepid and feels like it never ends. The audience in the theater only laughed twice in the two hours.

Still there are some great things. The make up is even more brilliant than in the first film, and way better than we've seen in Hollywood films (!). Amazing, once more. Robert Gustafsson, playing Allan, is just 52, but here he looks perfect as 101 years old man. (Well, maybe he looks a young 101, but still it's quite passable.)

Some of the CGI isn't very good, though. Especially the explosions and fires are bad, but it doesn't hurt the story, since it's far from believable anyway. The famous persons portrayed are also quite good.

What annoys extremely again, just as in the first, is the music, which really is Balkan circus music. Extremely annoying! This is the worst bit of the movie.

A pity that a great comedy has got such a lousy follow up.
