Trivia

Mikael Persbrandt prepared for the role of Carl Hamilton by training with the American Navy Seals in San Diego for an extensive period of time, learning techniques such as silent takedowns and weapon disarming. Mikael Persbrandt was also trained by SSG, the Swedish Elite Force, in preparation for the role. See more »

Goofs

Rob Hart tells Benjamin Lee that Lee will take out two Heads of State. But the Swedish Head of State is the monarch, not the Prime Minister. Thus at the time the movie is set it is His Majesty Carl XVI Gustaf, King of Sweden who is the Head of State. See more »

I thought it would be worse.
12 May 2012 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This Swedish movie/TV production ain't that bad as I thought it would be. 6/10 for a Swedish action movie based on a Jan Guillou novel is a high rating in my book.

The film's better features one can thank in particular Michael Pers Brant (who I'm not a huge fan of normally) and Seba Mubarak (her, I would like to see in future major roles). Gustaf Hammarsten as Swedish technical consultant is both believable and nicely played. The role is however small. Seba felt like the filmmakers could not portray fairly. She gave more than enough, but they could not capture it fully. Big, big disappointment is August, Ekborg, Hjulström and in most scenes Anderson. They come in, read their lines and done. Zero intensity. I expected much more from these Swedish giants. The foreign crew how ever did fits into well. They do a good job and feels credible. I would not nominate any actor in this production for any award though.

The close combat scenes stinks and there are other scenes when it feels like someone poured syrup in the machinery. There are times when slow tempo adds ... but usually it will just fall flat, boring and TTBA (Try To Be Artsy).

The screenplay is more pretentious than good. I have no high thoughts of Jan Guillou. In my opinion he is probably one of the most speculative writer, journalist and media personality in Sweden. That and a nasty self-righteous attitude shines through in all his productions.

Many negative words for a movie I rate 6/10 but thats the thing. It is never the less entertaining and if one starts to watch one want to see the whole movie.
