Trivia

The Statoil company paid 500,000 NOK ($USD67,000) for their logo to be displayed for three seconds in the film. See also the goofs entry for this film. See more »

Goofs

During the opening credits, several of the men in snow camouflage have impulse amplifiers on their assault rifles. Impulse amplifier is a device used with certain types of training ammo to ensure the gun keeps working, and also to crush the wooden practice "bullet" into harmless sawdust. It blocks the barrel of a gun, making it unable to fire live ammo when in use (and is thus used as a safety measure in non-live fire exercises). Russian soldiers guarding a nuclear weapon storage would most definitely not have training ammo in their guns. See more »

Sweden production plenty of action , suspense and Swedish /American actors
23 October 2007 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This Sweden-Norway co-production begins when Carl Hamilton (Peter Stormare) is assigned the dangerous mission to chase Russian gunrunners . Hamilton reunites a command formed by five tough soldiers . They are parachuted into Russian tundra where meet the smugglers and a nuclear missile SS,20, 1,5 megatons . It leads to Mursmank (Russian), there resides Hawkins (Mark Hamill), he formerly served in Vietnam and Fertile Crescent, today is a cunning manager whose 11 employees were the smugglers . Then , Hamilton goes to Lybian desert where encounters the baddies's base . Meanwhile , his wife (Lena Olin) is kidnapped in his mansion of Stenhara but Hamilton goes on the attack on the headquarter .

The film displays suspense , action-packed , thriller , violence and is quite entertaining . The highlights of the film are the impressive beginning with creepy execution including gore and a breathtaking final attack with fighting , pursuits and explosions . The base took several months to build and nearly 60,000 $ worth of damage was done when it was blown apart . This is an adaptation from TV series about Carl Hamilton and his assignments for Swedish government , filmed with high budget and Swedish players , such as Peter Stormare (Prison break , Fargo) , an usual nasty here turned into a cold action hero , American actors as Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as an exaggerated villain and Terry Carter (Galactica) ; furthermore a gorgeous Swedish , Lena Olin (Ninth gate, Chocolat, Unbearable lightness of being ). Rating : Entertaining and well worth watching.
