Cheesy but viewable movie
12 April 2008 | by (Iceland) – See all my reviews

A reporter living in Reykjavik finds out that his father may have died under suspicious circumstances. He starts working in a power plant located in the arctic desert of Iceland and starts his little private investigation in order to solve the mystery of his fathers death.

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.
