I decided to watch "Den Tredje Vågen" on video to kill time in the rainy Saturday's afternoon in Rio de Janeiro. I love European movies, but due to the lack of tradition in the action genre, I had minor expectation with this film. However, this movie is a surprisingly good Swedish-British thriller, full of action and usual exaggeration of the Hollywood films. The absolutely unknown cast has great performances, the Swedish Irina Björklund is very gorgeous and "Den Tredje Vågen" is an excellent entertainment. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): "Garras da Corrupção" ("Claws of the Corruption")
