As the title says, this is one of the best movies of 2017, if not the best, Dar Salim plays the lead role to perfection, actually everyone in the movie does their job so well it all melts together. The action is nicely tuned, the drama plays in well and the story just runs smooth. This movie, I'm guessing, will be remade in America, its THAT good.
Being Danish might make me biased but, seeing a movie about immigrant gangs where a "good" immigrant goes bad to kill the "BAD" immigrant's to avenge his brother, hits a spot. We have a lot of immigrant gang issues in Denmark right now and this movie in a sense shows that even immigrant's can get fed up with "BAD" immigrant's. Dar Salim's role has integrated into the Danish culture and way of life but when other immigrant's kill his brother, he goes on the war path, something Danish men could learn from...
I might be wrong, but the message i get from this movie is, even immigrant's hate "BAD" immigrant's. A lot of them want to be here to be part of Denmark, but the few ruin in for them. Denmark has room for everyone, that behave, this movie shows that even immigrant's can be fed up and want to rid the country of "BAD" Imigrants..
