Goofs

When Minoo is in the school library, talking to Max, there are letters on the wall behind them, which are supposed to read "Bokklubb" (Swedish for "Book club"). However, there is only one k, so it's misspelled as "Boklubb" (which in English would be equivalent to either "Book lub" or "Boo club"). See more »

Feels under-developed

I was looking forward to watch a Swedish movie, which I don't do very often. The reason is that Swedish film is known to be.. it's hard to explain, but cringe-worthy is definitely one way to put it. Swedes are pretty awkward in real life, but on film we're even more awkward. A good example of this is to compare the original first Millennium film with the Fincher remake.

I had heard that this movie was good, but it wasn't. FYI i have not read the books.

The villain was disappointing in execution and anything but threatening. I didn't believe for a second that the world was in grave danger.

The acting and dialog was cringe-inducing quite often, in typical Swedish fashion. The movie felt rushed and the lore of this universe was barely explained.

I give it a bonus star for portraying teen life and goth fashion pretty accurately (movies from all countries usually fail at this).
