All films of Denmark (from today and back to 2001) - together at one place!
The Good Cop
A crew of young, small-time crooks screws up. Ripping off a shipping container of Chinese silk for a Rasta gang, they also come away with two and a half kilos of heroin belonging to the Latvian mafia. A friend of theirs, Jens (Kim Bodnia), a plainclothes cop, tries to mediate, but instead all barrels are turned on him. The Latvians and the Chinese want him. Jamaican dope growers, ice-cold Serbian heroin dealers and Polish human smugglers are gunning for him. And to top it all off, he also has to dodge his fellow officers, backed by the scuba corps and elite-forces soldiers, to save his young friends.
This one has really weird cuts. Sometimes it feels out of sync.
Storywise I really like it. Jens is one of these tough-as-nails and intelligent, but simple on the other hand - characters. He has no problems with doing the most irrational things to get his way. I like that. I like danish movies.
Piece of fluff which has enough going on you don't realise just how silly it is... until you finish it and have to do a review.
A list of the Danish films I have seen. Recommendations are welcome.
Ahh the home of Dogme, Kim Bodnia, Ulrich Thomsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, Mads Mikkelsen, Anders Thomas Jensen, Von Trier and…
