Did You Know?


During filming of the climactic fight scene, Mark Hamill was told a punch he'd thrown at Peter Stormare's face didn't look convincing enough, and was asked to swing "lower and closer." On the next take, Hamill did so and accidentally hit Stormare for real, hard enough that he split his lip. In a making-of documentary, Hamill was visibly shocked by the accident. See more »


At the end scene where Hamilton is walking towards the camera, you can see the camera team in his sunglasses. See more »

A great Swedish movie
9 August 2003 | by gregerpalmSee all my reviews

I read what another one of my fellow users had written about Hamilton. he apparently thought that it was an, and I quote, "amaricanized piece of garbage". This is completely wrong. It is an excellent action movie and as for the fact that Peter Stormare is playing the leading role, I can tell u that he is the best hamilton ever. Stellan Skarsgård was the last one to play hamilton and he was much worse than Peter Stormare. It's definately a 8/10.
