A pretty good film.
1 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

The movie does as usual not completely do the novel justice. But since the novel is about 400 pages, that's natural. The movie is good, and apart from a few small "mistakes" I really enjoyed it. The actors are doing a pretty good job, well most of the anyway. The scenery is well done, and the footage are good. I have notice that some Norwegian movie reviews have recommended people to not see this movie. That is pure bull. The movie is well worth seeing. I would say probably on the better Norwegian action/thrillers.

There are some parts of the novel that are completely missing in the movie, but since the novel writer and the screenplay writer is the same guy, the movie still works.
