Dark, gritty, but overlong and repetitive

"Pitbull. New Orders" is another one in a long list of Polish movies that center around the 'friendship' between gangsters and the police in Poland. You get some policemen trying to stop the gangsters, some policemen working for the gangsters, gangsters that seem to have come out of your rent-a-pimp/rent-muscles-without-brains shelf, hypersexualized people (of course, goes without saying, women have the role of little more than being there for show; don't worry, they also are violent), and your 101 violent situations.

Majami is a policeman that doesn't look like one whose path gets across Babcia (Granny in Polish), a football fan (one of those that breaks bones and skulls) who is the new leader of a ring of 'bad people'. Majami will try anything to stop Babcia, while Babcia will try to keep his 'business' running with the help of the most inept henchmen ever.

Cue violence, baseball bats, blood, some naked bodies, a henchman that is too dumb to be true, and a kill-die-repeat formula that gets tiring as the movie advances (how many times can you have the bad guys repeating the same thing over and over?). As Majami, Piotr Stramowski does an acceptable job, even if you don't really buy into his I-want-to-be-a-father side, while Boguslaw Linda is having a blast as Babcia (not that it is the first time he has played these kind of roles). The rest of the movie is populated by popular faces from Polish movies and shows, and they do a good job.

However, the movie stretches its plot a little bit too long (it runs to almost 2 hours and 15 minutes) and there is a limit to a plot which is basically made of air. It looks beautiful, though.

To put it nicely, this movie doesn't flow......

The music is not bad, the photography also but everything else is pretty much a disaster.

It seems like the movie is made of some random pieces put together. It DOES NOT flow. There are lots of bold men, swear words and bottles being smashed on ppl's heads. Nothing else.

One of the worst action/police movies I have ever seen... and thanks to my husband I have seen a lot!
