This movie may be the best icelandic action movie since "Í skugga hrafnsins" by director Hrafn Gunnlaugsson. However, director Björn Brynjólfur has a long way to travel before he'll rise above the B-label standard he has earned himself with his earlier movies.
As to be expected, the light-work is horrible in this movie. Björn simply does not understand the fine line between artistic lighting and pure trash and should stick with B&W film. Handing Björn a colour film is just a waste of money.
The outward appearance of the movie is quite cheesy and amateurish. The slow, shaky, freehand pan-ing at the beginning of the film is absolutely hilarious.
