I will not trash this movie. I did not find it bad at all. It had some action, some suspense, some romance and drama. It had the potential to be a very well balanced film. And the acting and character building is good here, possibly better than Sprangaren. Yet, I did not like it all that much. Why? The action appeared mindless and the film was not dependent on that. A major suspense link was killed in the middle of the movie. Perhaps, the Paradiset link could have been explored in more depth, especially given the title of the movie. The introduction of romance and drama was all right but not what I expected from this series. In the end, it is still a one time watch for someone who appreciates a balanced genre movie with a lot of character study. But this is not really an action movie, a suspense movie or a thriller.
