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 »
Is this the best Hamilton film ever? I think so. Harald Schwart,Peter Stormare and Lena Olin gives Hamilton a whole new dimension.
This is probably the best Hamilton film ever. Although there`s a few holes in the story,Scwart manages to give us the story of the two Jan Guillou books Ingenmanslan Den Enda Segern. I suppose those holes will be corrected in the TV-series. Peter Stormare is,in my opinion the best Hamilton ever,and getting Lena Olin to play Tessie was also a major scoop. Althogh I don`t think I can ever identify Mark Hamill as anyone else than Luke Skywalker,I think he gives Mike Hawkins the necessary cynicism that the character was given by Jan Guillou.
