The exciting sequel to "Vabank"

""Vabank II" is the exciting sequel to Juliusz Machulski's 1982 crime/comedy "Vabank." The story picks up two years later, in 1936, with Kramer in prison plotting to get back at Kinto.
Kramer, with the help of some hired help, manages to break out of prison. The suspense builds as we find Kinto and his friends are on Kramer's hit list. A cat and mouse situation develops as the two characters take turns in having the upper hand. The story becomes interesting because it's not evident who will be the victor.
"Vabank II" is an entertaining Polish film with a good amount of action and suspense. It has the same cast as its predecessor and shows us what became of Kinto, his gang, and the crooked bank manager, Kramer. I found "Vabank II" more suspenseful than Vabank because the film was less predictable. There is some comedy throughout the movie, such as when Kramer bumbles his way though the Nazi border guards trying to get into Germany. It's a great sequel and if you enjoyed the first part, then you should also like this movie.
