This is my humble opinion of the movie Hamilton.
23 January 1999 | by (Flen, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better movies about Carl Hamilton and his missions for the swedish goverment.

Peter Stormare plays the part of Hamilton quite good but sometimes he is a litle stiff specially in scens with Tess (Lena Olin). But in the action scenes he is perfect. The way he grins with his teeth when Hamilton is in a tight spot is a thing of beauty. Mark "Luke Skywalker" Hamill is playing the bad guy in this film, and he is not bad as Hawkins. He is both funny and bad at the same time which is making the character more interesting.

The story is not the best one from Jan Guillou but it is enough to make it one of the better ones.

I still think that Stellan Skarsgard is "Carl Hamilton".
