Good premise, but clumsy execution of 'the-innocent-guy-turned-inside-agent'...
10 December 2001 | by (Åby, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Swedish/British co-production of a young Swedish boxer who is framed and forced into an inside agent mission in the '80s continuing cold war in 'neutral' Sweden. Based on a fairly successful novel by Swedish writer Harry Kullman, it fails on most accounts. Cheap production values not used to their advantage plus clumsy, deftless direction sink this agent thriller, despite some tight suspense scenes... And as a native Swede, hearing my compatriot actors spouting really dodgy English accents just doesn't help much. To be honest, I haven't seen it since its release year, so I might enjoy it more on a re-watch to dig it on a campy, '80s nostalgia level!
