Summary: This is a superb film, expertly crafted on every level. There are so many brilliant 'edge of your seat' set pieces that stay in your mind when the film has finished. It moves a long at a really good pace with slick editing and a score that keeps you transfixed throughout. One of the best thrillers I've seen in a long long time and a script that really brings the characters to life. These Norwegians don't mess around when it comes to film making.
Summary: What a great movie. I guess this will be the Norwegian entry for the Academy Awards. Very good story, fast, intelligent, very good lead actor, wonderful performances in general. Sure it's all about that special thing in the motion picture industry, I guess this Director has just built his ...
Summary: A great Norwegian crime/thriller, very entertaining. Well acted from everyone involved, interesting story and well directed. Synnøve Macody Lund and Aksel Hennie were standouts for me, especially considering that it was Lund's first time in a movie. As for the story, it's a well crafted puzzle that all fits together perfectly in the end. Very intriguing and smart. But not as funny as other people are saying it is, this is definitely not a dark comedy.
Summary: A Scandinavian shade of dark carefully panned thriller, with a number of ever escalating and unimaginable twists and turns, keeps audiences on the edge of their seats. Unless you are averse to films with subtitles, watch it before you are faced with the dilemma of choosing the unavoidable glossy Hollywood remake.
Summary: At first the protagonist is the bad guy, but you will soon be rooting for him. This guy is like the Timex watch, he takes a licking and keeps on ticking. There are difficult scenes that you will be watching through your fingers! Very action packed, gory, and fun. You're not sure who is trustworthy at first, even his wife is suspect. A word of warning, it's a Norwegian film so you will have to read captions, and you will need to be a speed reader.
Summary: An enjoyable and entertaining film for the first two thirds at which point it loses its plausibility and seems to rush to a finish. Still, this film was better than the last three I had seen. The violence was gory but since it was not widespread throughout it did not detract from the story. I wish they had not rushed the last third of the film so we could absorb the resolution. The finale ventured into the realm of the implausible which lost points with me.
Summary: One of t h e best movies I've seen this year. Great plot with plenty of twists and turns. A movie easily overlooked until you watch it. If there is one movie to watch this year - it's this one.
Summary: A must-see pulpy film with a great story, extreme violence, and lively comedy. If you're a fan of Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones, you'll love his role in Headhunters. I won't spoil the plot here, but I'll say that I could hear half the audience whispering with their partners about the plot machinations as the film progressed. Lots going on, and great fun. But again, if you're not ready for extremely graphic violence (bloody mayhem, etc.
