grade Z confusing amateurish bore
15 February 2013 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

This movie was so amateurish it distracted from what ever the story was supposed to be about. It was a smuggling thriller but am still not sure exactly what they were smuggling vodka pills or both. (I think?? one group was smuggling pills another vodka and the hero's "friend" stole the money which he was supposed to pay out so landed him in trouble.

The "good" smuggler evidently figured out a way to have the vodka laced with heroin or whatever he was smuggling float to the surface of the ocean where he ditched it at just the exact right time so it could be recovered. If you could have followed what laws of physics he exploited to achieve this at least it would have made sense. If that was even the case?

This is below a B grade it is a Z grade Icelandic thriller movie....the smuggler/robin hood hero gets away with it.

The main character's wife looked like she about to be raped a half dozen times and it looked like she was killed once including being totted around wrapped in clear plastic but ends up smiling in a hospital bed at the end of the movie.

This thing is an amateurish dog. Iceland can surely produce something better than this. Confusing bad acting boring what else makes a movie a dud? This one had it. Maybe if I could have followed the logic of the story it would have helped.

It gets 2 stars for the uniqueness of being from Iceland otherwise it would have gotten 1.

Maybe you have to watch it twice to figure out the story. But nothing about this movie could force me to do that.

DO NOT RECOMMEND
