Thriller not being a thriller
6 November 2001 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Colin Nutley is known for regarding Swedes in an English way, although he makes us recognize ourselves very well. He has always been fair to us. In "Sprängaren" he is telling a story about life on a Swedish evening paper. The plot, which begins with the bombing of the new imaginary Stockholm Olympic Stadium, isn't really interesting however. The values in this movie are to be find in the relations between the reporters.

Helena Bergström is here making her best part for quite long. According to Swedish journalists, this is how life is at an editorial staff of this kind. The problem is the thriller element. Mr. Nutley makes the final solution a little too easy and one asks oneself, was it really necessary to make a thriller at all, when you are making a movie about this kind of newspaper people?
