My favorite Hamilton
12 October 2001 | by akhilles84See all my reviews

Stefan Sauk plays the Swedish equivalent of James Bond(kind of at least) in this action thriller involving the Sicilian maffia in the Hamilton saga.I think Sauk is the best Carl Hamilton ever.He brings so much power and intensity to this role.Stellan Skarsgård was ok as Hamilton,didnt have sense for Stormare or Peter Haber and noone of these come close to Sauk's interpretation.Sauk shows both guts and wit in this solid thriller.The supporting ensemble cast gotta be some of Italy's finest actors.A nice way to spend October afternoon.
