I never understood why they changed his name/nationality here.

After I watched the original for the first time some years ago I felt like my whole life up to that point was a big lie.

NO. As much as I love our British guys, Rickman and Irons are equally awesome. Hans, as character, is definitely more impressive since, like I said, he's got a effing load of awesome dialogue

all imo.

It always bothered me a bit that Hans had to shout "shoot the glass" in
English after he said it first in German... wouldn't it make more sense the

this is a very good point, had totally forgotten about it. There's no possible explanation to me. Not a goof, since scene's obviously meant to be that way. Perhaps Karl isn't German?

That's the way I always understood it. Hans repeated what he said in English out of frustration because Karl couldn't understand the line in german.
