Decent Swedish actioner (with remake potential...)
18 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In some ways it it is difficult, and even pointless, to try to compete with American action movies. The enormous market, and therefore budgets that an American movie can unleash is simply no match for a movie made in a country of 9 million. I bet the extras-casting bill for Transformers eclipsed the budget of this film.

Thus, as a Swedish action movie, this is pretty good. The set up is not bad and this could make a great American remake with an average Joe, working at an airbase in Alaska is presented with the same conundrum as Shanti Roney's character is in this film. A bigger budget would make a better film.

As it stands now, this has a great concept, some nice locales, a couple of decent action sequences, a pretty good villain, and a decent twist at the end. Livvakterna and Noll Tolerans are still better in my book, but this isn't half bad.
