A decent movie
I went into the cinema expecting a movie about the diplomatic crisis, the problems which would occur when you're faced with a chaotic attack of this sort. Unfortunately, I got a bit more of a romance story than what I wanted. I am not saying it's a bad thing, for the movie itself is well made and planned, but just different from what I expected. The movie is intense and has for sure what I'd say is a typical Swedish movie with a lot of repressed emotions and anxiety, which reaches out to the viewer.
Whilst the movie in itself is good, there are several times where I find myself annoyed upon subtle "plotholes". As I am involved in the Swedish military, there were several times where I sat frustrated, knowing that several things the soldiers did in the movie would not occur in the same way in real life.
Overall, the movie was good. Despite it not being my type of movie, I won't let that alter my judgement, thus I set an eight.
