Mads Mikkelsen's excellent performance!
16 October 2019 | by tolunayd22See all my reviews

A film that gives the feeling of survival beautifully. Mads Mikkelsen's acting is enormous. The shots are very successful. The script is weak. Mads Mikkelsen and shooting quality saves the film. It's a little awkward that most things repeat themselves. So there's no difference. End of the film is very cliché.
