Besides the journey of Tomppa and Krisu, the main characters of the film, Rööperi tells the story of Gypsy Kari, Arska, Bisquit, Uki and a bunch of other bad boys and criminals; it tells of their memorable and unscrupulous journey from crime and poverty to becoming respectable citizens, going to jail—or dying too young. The wrong side of the law is seen through the eyes of Koistinen, a local police officer.
The guys who fall into a life of crime have one thing in common: they all start by bootlegging, being sure money is an answer to all their problems. Money is a way out of a miserable life; it is a way to happiness and their modest dreams. They can stop doing criminal business as soon as they get enough money.
When the guys start making more money with black-market booze, their hunger and their dreams grow bigger.

Although gotta love a movie that starts with a character called Genital Warthog & has Queer Duck being turned gay again by a touch of Barbra Streisand's nose. It was OK, but could have been so much better. They should have got KY Jellyfish from the shorts involved!

Tatsuhito K (gb) wrote: This unique, cheesy, yet gleefully twisted antihero movie by Sam Raimi feels dated for sure, and it is not for those who prefer today's visual effects-driven superhero films. But when the action explodes on screen, it's pretty damn entertaining. I also enjoyed the arc and psychological transformation that the protagonist goes through during the course of the film, and I commend Raimi for trying to make an original superhero film with some thematic depths, instead of a mindless, fun popcorn entertainment. Love the use of practical effects such as the makeup and stop-motion. Danny Elfman's whimsical score adds more layers to the story, and Liam Neeson is rather good as Darkman. It's not a great film, but for what it is it's quite enjoyable.

Kathryn T (mx) wrote: This nearly forgotten movie is one of the best character studies I've ever seen. Beautifully written dialog, music scored to reflect the characters. The actors - all of them - turned in amazing performances. And the underlying message speaks to the ability of the human spirit to continue to grow, even in old age. Not a movie for children or for when one seeks uncomplicated entertainment, but a movie not to be missed.
