Trivia

The Swedish Air Force made two demands of the filmmakers in return for the loan of the six JAS 39 Gripen Fighter jets. The First was that all aerial photography would be granted for use in commercials by the Air Force free of charge. The second was that one of the military characters was a female and that she had a substantial role, because the Air Force wants more women to apply for service. See more »

Good, but ruined a bit by nervousness
25 August 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

The start of this thriller is great. Just like a Hollywood production we taken right into a defense training facility, where there's high stakes about future technology. Another of Swedish director Kjell Sundvall's thriller, which is from the rural parts of Northern Sweden, just like his best, the classic "The hunters" from 1996. This however is rated one of his lowest here on IMDb.

It starts great off, and it's easy to follow the plot. But wherein lies this film's problem? Some of the actors are doing a great job, like mother and wife Maria Bonnevie, The major Stefan Sauk and the bad guy Dejan Cukic. But main character Lasse is really overplayed by otherwise well playing Shanti Roney. He is overly nervous all the time. So much that it gets annoying. Maybe this is the instruction he is given, maybe to Be obvious to foreign audience? Who knows, but this is a major problem for the film, which he carries on his shoulders, as the main person.

However, this is not worse than we've seen in Hollywood thrillers, without it being punished with bad reviews from the watchers. I think the film keep your interest, like Sundvall's films always do, so it's still an OK film to watch for entertainment
