Dated Thriller
29 January 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In 1981, after the successful test of a submarine tracker device developed by the Swedish scientist Paul Mandell (Hardy Krüger) and sponsored by the US government through his representative Miller (Dennis Hopper), his industry is totally burned and the laser device is stolen. Stig Larsson (Gösta Ekman) from the Swedish Secret Agency suspects of an inside job and brings the Swedish Marine Thomas Kallin (Cory Molder) to investigate Paul undercover as his driver. The naive Kallin is double-crossed but continues his investigation while Larsson finds the truth about the heist.

"Slagskämpen" is dated in 2008, with Cold War and diskettes, but it is not a bad thriller. The story has a surprising twist when the whole plot is disclosed to Stig and the acting is reasonable. The shameful Brazilian DVD costs only US$ 4,00, but does not have subtitles in Portuguese. The option for those that can not understand English is to watch the movie dubbed in Portuguese. Shame on "Weekend Distributor"! My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "O Informante" ("The Informer")
