Storyline

A semi-fictional account, including most of the names of the players being changed, of the event that resulted in the creation of the term Stockholm Syndrome to describe people who feel empathy and sometimes more for their captor(s) is presented. In 1973, a lone armed man, thought to be American, storms the downtown Stockholm branch of Kreditbanken. Ultimately the authorities, led by Chief of Police Mattsson learn of his at-gunpoint demand: $1 million US, the release of convicted bank robber and murderer Gunnar Sorensson, and a Mustang Boss 302 like the one Steve McQueen drove in Bullitt (1968) as a getaway vehicle for the two of them. By the time Mattsson gets Sorensson to the bank - unknown to the gunman, who is thought to be well known robber Kaj Hansson, Sorenson having made a plea deal with Mattsson for his cooperation against the gunman - there are three hostages at the bank, all the others that were in the bank at the time let go. Arguably the most lucid of the three is bank ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

The Ford Mustang that was given to the crooks wasn't the same model as the the car in Bullitt (1968). See more »

Goofs

The bank lobby is definitely filmed in the North America rather than in Sweden. The design of telephones, light switches, and door knobs aren't same as in Sweden or Europe. The European telephones prior to the 1990s don't have the letters corresponding to the numbers. The light switches in Sweden and Europe don't use the toggle to lift up or down: instead, they use the flat rocker panels. The European doors (outside the United Kingdom) use the handles rather than knobs. See more »

Good, but could have been better
17 June 2019 | by TopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Writer and director Robert Budreau did a great job directing, but his writing needed more "oomph". Pacing was a little slow, and not much comedy - all of it pretty much shown in the trailer. The acting however, was outstanding, especially from Ethan Hawke and Noomi Rapace. Enjoyable film on how Stockholm Syndrome was recognized as a psychological diagnosis. A 7/10 from me.
