| Excellent... if it would have been told in 10 minutes. But 93 minutes? Forget it!
I saw the trailer and thought this movie might be worth to watch. Unfortunately, as I found out while watching it, the trailer already shows the highlights.

The movie is way too long and the story could have been easily told in 10 Minutes. As short film this would be excellent, but 93 minutes... it really gets boring.

The only reason to watch it is the excellent casting of Thierry Van Werverke http://us.imdb.com/Name?Van+Werveke,+Thierry as lisping "Glotze". He is really funny...

The rest of the cast? Oh boy... There is Udo Kier, the king of supporting actors, who plays an insane and mercenary doctor. Due to a laryngeal defect he wears a amplifying, illuminated necklace which strangely alters his voice. This is so stupid and somehow reminds me of Dennis Hopper playing the evil guy in Super Mario Bros. (an incredible piece of sh*t).

Then there is Burt Reynolds as gangster boss "Banko". Gosh! This facelift is terrifying. Michael Jackson looks better. Due to his tense skin, he is almost unable to fully open his mouth so that he can't speak properly. Anyway the part he plays... I mean "Smokey and the Bandit" was fun to watch when I was a kid, but this one really hurts.

Remarkable is the casting of Steffen Wink as "Rico". Remarkable, because in the movie he just looks like producer, co-director (and actor) Til Schweiger, so that I wonder why Schweiger hasn't played himself. Wink's performance is ridiculous.

Niels-Bruno Schmidt as "Dave" isn't worth to mention, Martin Glade as "Siggi" is OK because he is quite funny to look at.

Concludingly, I wouldn't recommend to spend money on this movie. I saw the movie with three friends and we all rated it 4.0 (out of 10).
