The Best Swedish Movie I've Ever Seen!
4 July 2018 | by wilhelmjonssonSee all my reviews

I didn't know what to expect when I went to see the movie. I had barely seen the trailer and the visit to the cinema was really spontaneous.

During the very first section of the movie I was getting nervous that the movie was going to disappoint me. It's very slow-paced for quite some time in the beginning. But when the story takes a turn I started to appreciate the slow setup. It's a development of a great story with just the right amount of context at the moment chaos unleashes. Something I don't think we would have seen if it were a Hollywood production (where it's all about getting to the action ASAP).

And then comes the turning point in the story. Chaos is unleashed on little Sweden, all elements in the movie (story, visuals, audio, VFX etc.) just creates this amazing experience. Progression is done in such a beautiful manner, great pacing not to fast not to slow.

When the movie ended I just wanted to see it again, right away (something that happens very rarely). I'm sitting tight for another chance to see it because the movie is totally worth it!

A big thank you to the creators for this experience!
