"Reich" (2001) is an intense action film by Wladyslaw Pasikowski, famous for directing the cult hit "Psy." We step into a world of organized crime with "Reich," where things get bloody on a regular basis.
The story is about two hit men, Alex (Boguslaw Linda) and Andre (Miroslaw Baka). The actors make a great pair. Linda plays a great "tough guy" in several Polish films and Baka is none other than the killer in Kieslowski's "A Short Film About Killing." The pair shows little mercy and use violent force to get their way.
The duo gets ordered to spend some time in a small town waiting further orders. While there, they raise the furry of the local mobsters and spend their free time picking up women. "Reich" is more than just a "shoot them up" film. Our tough guys contemplate living a new life and finding love with the new women they met. The movie has a few plot twists, which makes the story less predictable and more suspenseful.
Although "Reich" is not exactly like Pasikowski's other action films, it does have a similar feeling. Get ready for some action, as wherever they venture, things happen.
