This is a very funny movie that entertains you all the way. Something happens from the beginning through the end. Even during the subtitles people stayed, to hear the last jokes. Many of the things happening has been done before, but here is added some typical Danish black humor. Like when one guy, shoots another guy, and then calmly asks him to shut up. And even though the poor guys brain is all over the room, you can't help laughing. I think there are 22 killings in the movie, but it's done in a way, so you never takes it serious. You are always aware that this is a movie, and it's all just for fun.
I think it can be compared to Pulp Fiction, for the way people gets killed, and to Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels in the way the main characters are trying to raise money, with all the problems and killing this leads to.
I will give this a 9 of 10, because it's a little superficial, and not totally original, but I haven't laughed so much for a long time. Not since I saw the other new Danish top comedy Den Eneste ene in the spring.
