HAMILTON: IN THE INTEREST OF THE NATION is a Swedish international crime thriller along the lines of the BOURNE trilogy, which it references throughout. The main character is a Swedish spy who travels around the world performing difficult jobs for the Swedish government, so a little like a Swedish Bond too, and the quality of this film is just as good as the recent Daniel Craig-made Bond flicks.

Mikael Persbrandt (THE HYPNOTIST) is a tall and imposing choice for the protagonist, very Swedish, very calm and assured...and deadly, of course. Apparently this film is based on a long-running series of spy novels and I hope to see more of the same given the quality of this movie. HAMILTON plays out as a gutsy, realistic thriller set in the world of international arms smuggling, in which massacre, terrorism, and bombings seem to be almost daily occurrences.

Films like this thrive on their action scenes and the ones that take place in HAMILTON are superior: well shot, with none of the shaky-cam work where you can't see what's going on. The cast give assured performances, especially the always-entertaining Jason Flemyng, who gives one of the best acting jobs I've seen from him. There's not a great deal of fighting in the movie, but the suspense remains high throughout, especially during the fantastic tension-filled climax. Plus look out for that incredibly gutsy plot twist early on: can you imagine a Hollywood film having the nerve to pull that off?
