Neither good nor bad
27 April 2000 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I think the summary line says it all: this Swedish action thriller from 1989 is very average. The story is quite interesting, but it seems too complex to be explored in a 90 minute film. Of course, the acting is brilliant, especially by Stellan Skarsgård, which isn't exactly surprising (his son Gustaf is also in the film), but that doesn't help the film which I gave a 4 (out of 10) here at IMDb.
