Horrible!
28 April 2005 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

"Hjärta av sten" means "heart of stone" in English. To be frank, I consider this movie embarrassing to Sweden in general and the Swedish film industry in particular. And you probably need a heart of stone in order to stomach this particular flick.

The storyline isn't too complicated. A Russian hit man travels to Stockholm (the capital of Sweden) and kill someone. And ends up with a Swedish police officer, who recently returned from Russia, on his tail. And I guess most of us can figure out the rest without putting too much strain on the "little gray ones". Besides that, the movie is so cliché-laden that it sometimes felt more like a comedy than an action flick.

Now, a weak storyline doesn't necessarily mean that the movie is a total failure. Good acting and dialog can more than adequately compensate for a weak storyline. In case that there ARE good acting and dialog, that is. And that is not the case here. The dialog is shallow and borders on ridiculous from time to time, while the acting is downright horrible. Not even Allan Svensson, who I consider to be one of the most experienced and talented actors in Sweden (and most Swedish actors/actresses ARE good, mind you) manage to pull it off. (Well, he might have found himself lacking motivation, considering what he had to work with.) Singer Therese Grankvist show us why her place is behind a mike, and not in front of a camera. We also have the usual gang of Russian mobsters - They all look and sound the same to me (sweat pants/jeans and black leather jackets, and a crew cut), but that makes it more believable.

There are a few nice looking shots, though. But I'm not sure if the movie itself deserves any credit for that, since it seem to be stock footage.

The bottom line, this is a downright horrible movie. I can't remember watching anything so bad made in this country since "Sökarna" made it to the movie theaters some 10 or 15 years ago.
