Watchable, but gloomy and uneven
1 April 2013 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

The director Petri Kotwica is the screenwriter as well and his "sitting on two chairs simultaneously" was apparently not a good idea: the plot is not running smoothly, there are several questionable moments and the ending is plain. At first, there is too big emphasis on PC gaming and 1+1 connection, then it suddenly becomes a twisted college film... And what about the scenes where a mother and a girlfriend do not recognise their son and boyfriend, respectively! Even dark cellars and dark periods in a Nordic country would cause this :)

As for the cast, all the main roles are performed by Finns and many supporting ones by Estonians - so much for a Finnish-Estonian joint project... The performers are okay, but nothing special, and apparently the director's desire to stress dark psychology overshadows "naturalism" of appearances.

Rat King is perhaps for (young) computer geeks, but I was not impressed. Nevertheless, quite okay for a less than 1,5 hours.
