An usual thriller shot in Danemark
24 March 2008 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I haver never seen an American film noir shot in Danemark before. That's really the first time.

The story itself offers no great surprises. Payne plays an American cop who tries to clear his sister of a murder charge. He has to fight against counterfeiters. I must admit that we have already seen this before, a thousand times. Especially Payne who is as hard boiled as ever.

But it's a tough thriller, no boring at all with, at the end, a good chase through the country side around Copenhagen.

A rare Andre de Toth movie that deserves to be discovered.
