Polar
20 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

The only exceptional thing about this film is Mads Mikkelsen, who is always worth watching. Otherwise, the film is mediocre, predictable, schmaltzy in parts, your typical beat-em-up shoot-em-up extravaganza, complete w/closeups of wounds and dead people. Too much money was spent for a mediocre movie. Surely Mikkelsen doesn't need the money this much, does he? He can afford to be more discriminating.
