Jens may well be a good cop, but his childhood friends are all lowlifes. And so, in order to keep them out of trouble when one of their schemes goes predictably wrong, he finds himself caught perilously between gangs of Rastafarian marijuana growers, Chinese silk smugglers, Latvian drug dealers, Polish people traffickers, and the Serbian mafia, struggling manfully to sort things out, in Spang Olsen’s poorly executed action comedy. Flat photography, dizzyingly quick editing, uncharacteristically lacklustre performances, and some decidedly convoluted plotting combine to quite disastrous effect.
