Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
Eight years on, a new evil rises from where the Batman and Commissioner Gordon tried to bury it, causing the Batman to resurface and fight to protect Gotham City... the very city which brands him an enemy.
This sequel works better then the first movie GSI. Its an easier narrative and also has more suspense. The action is also better directed/written then it was in GSI. As downside it doesn't work completely on its own but must be viewed after GSI. It also isn't as well-made as the the 3 original Johan Falck movies. It does lack the the end twist Anders Nilsson successfully created in Executive Protection and The Third Wave.
But this is a fresh alternative (and better) to other Swedish police movies (Beck and Wallander) That makes me want to see the rest of the series.
It also feels a lot more realistic then most other police movies. And Joel Kinnaman works very good for the movie, as does the rest of the cast. Highly recommended.
