This movie really KICKS ASS!!
24 May 1999 | by MC VejleSee all my reviews

You know I have been in Denmark for nearly 5 years and I have never seen something like this before. The most Danish movies really sucks like "Olsen Banden" and those new movies are some crap too. For example "Sidste Time" has a good story but it ends so strange, also "Pusher" and "Nattevagten", all those have strange endings! But "Pizza King" has been a real success, the actors, the story, every thing in the movie is perfect! (THE MUSIC TOO) It really shows the life in Copenhagen and how the most Danish people trade the young immigrants and the truth always hurts!!
