Raid is back in town.He finds out his girlfriend Tarja is dead.Acting work in this movie is great.Kai Lehtinen is our leading man, who doesn't talk a lot but acts much more.Oiva Lohtander as Jansson is brilliant.Juha Muje makes his drunken Sundman a tragicomic character.Mari Rantasila plays Tarja.Then there are some Finnish movie veterans.Helge Herala plays Emperor-Tarja's father, and even on the hospital bed he does a great job.Sakari Jurkka is Jansson's father, and the same thing goes with him as with Herala.It has a couple nice action scenes, but that's all.Overall, an OK movie, but nothing groundbreaking.
