Agent Thriller without the thrill

After the first 20 minutes of the movie I feared I had bought a cheap soft sex movie in which somehow, mysteriously Dennis Hopper and Hardy Krüger appeared.

After the first half hour it became clear that "The Inside Man" is just a normal Thriller (although lacking any thrill) with outstandingly lousy acting. Even Hopper and Krüger don't look any better than anybody in a school play.

Although this is a Swedish movie, the film is done in English. But the accents of all the actors are way too strong to make this an advantage. Of course Dennis Hopper has his American accent and Hardy Krüger is speaking with a strong German accent. This is the only movie I've ever seen which works better in the dubbed version!

none out of ***** Stars!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!
