The phenomenon of badness
4 March 2010 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

maby it could have been better if the Swedish cast had been limited to one character only - the Swedish wannabee writer. then there would have been no pretend-to-be-from-America-when-I'm-not necessary.

then perhaps the cultural collision would have added flavor of refinement - instead of making the whole thing into a sleazy staged-to-look-good burger with lots of color - but no taste at all.

Don't they realize that the clear Swedish tone in the American characters played by swedes gets in a bad light of contrast when directly compared to the original in form of famous American actors playing in the same movie??? Or is this some kind of Nordic belief of being "better then the original" that is showing up in overtones?

the script is OK as such - i have seen great actors play in movies based on scripts much worse written.

Alexander Skarsgård, who plays the transsexual homicidal patient, seems actually think that makeup and some wig by itself is going to do the job of turning him into a intriguing transsexual character.

but off course - hes name must have made some money for the producers - usually I'm sure its not worthy to base your thoughts on that its because hes the son of Hollywood actor Stellan Skaarsgard, but in this case - bearing in mind the just OK script and the bad acting performance that is offered by the Swedish part of the cast in general

  • its hard not to think that the skarsgård name might have been an


important factor in the recruitment of the more famous parts of the American cast.
