User Reviews

 
Swedish drama, well made.
3 August 2020 | by deloudelouvainSee all my reviews

In the drama genre Goliat isn't a bad movie. It's not really my favorite genre of movies but this one was certainly watchable. I don't know anybody of the Swedish actors but they all did a very believable job, each character added something to the story. A story that is entertaining enough, it has a good pace, not much action but the evolution and the desperation of the main character is worth watching. It's all well made, simple but effective, with a good cast so good enough to watch once.
