Jesper, top salesman at an IT company, is a bastard. Jesper gets in an accident DUI. He loses his job, his girlfriend and does community service at a recycling center and must adjust to his new surroundings and colleagues.
Anders Matthesen really did a good job with his new animated movie. Everything is well done, the animation and the story especially impressed me.
The right amount of his own kind of humour was added and is guaranteed to make laugh a lot, because many of the jokes are actually not just low brow jokes or mean-spirited stereo typing, but clever satire on different pop culture elements.
The ninja himself quickly became my favourite, because without spoiling anything I can tell you that he has many funny abilities and a great backstory. The other characters are mostly created as satire on different personalities similar to the ones from his earlier work, Terkel I Knibe, but still enjoyable.
Speaking of which, people who are familiar with that movie will get many cameos from different characters from that movie, most notably Onkel Stewart. Even though it feels pointless to have so many cameos and give Stewart so much screen time whe Matthesen clearly has stated that he won't make another Terkel movie, it is still filled with laughter and is enjoyable. What Stewart's relation to the main character? Maybe I didn't get it.
But one thing which was really delightful was how much better the animation had become. Terkel I Knibe was pretty ugly to look at, but Ternet Ninja had got some really promising animators to work on it and their hard work impressed me and even overwhelmed me at times.
The story presented to us in Ternet Ninja is basically about achieving your goals instead of just being a whiny loser. It was shown and acted pretty well and did also convey a heart-warming message and a social commentary. I guess it's still not for the youngest viewers, but it is more watchable and has much more heart to it than Terkel I Knibe.
