We were blown away by this film, and I have to admit, I wasn't sure what to expect. I went into the theater with a lot of high hopes and was blown away. The characters, the dialogue, and the action scenes were just incredible. Even the editing was great, and it never felt like it dragged on. The acting was excellent, especially the supporting roles, and the character development was great. I loved the way the story progressed, and I was interested in what was going to happen next. I was never bored, and I was actually laughing a lot. I will definitely be buying this film when it comes out on DVD.

As many have noted, this is a masterpiece of the Scandinavian Cinematic Tradition, and the beauty of the story, the music and the directing make it a pleasure to watch. The performances are wonderful, and the actors portray the many characters very convincingly, without any excess or sexualizing them. The screenplay is gripping, and the characters and motivations are well-crafted and emotional. Overall, a superb achievement.

In 1991, a bunch of people decide to do some kind of a robbery. While the robbery is going on, they are all killed one by one. They then run out of ammo, so they go to a gun store and buy some more. When they get back to the house, they find the wife and kids murdered one by one. They decide to get revenge on their killers and to find out who is responsible. This movie is great, because it shows the low-life elements of the criminal world in a very realistic way. The way they are portrayed in this movie is very realistic, because in real life they're not like that. Also, it shows that there are people out there who don't know that they're doing wrong, because they are in the wrong. I highly recommend this movie. It is very, very good.

I saw this movie in Europe. The story is very interesting. And I loved the acting of the two leads, just amazing. I think that the movie is a good movie. I like the way that it is filmed and that it is a really good movie. I have seen a lot of movies and I can tell you that this is one of the best. I hope that there will be another good movie in Norway. I also liked the scenery and the cinematography. I recommend you to watch this movie. I also recommend you to see it if you like movies like Black Hawk Down, Zero Dark Thirty or even if you are a fan of Spiderman or Spiderman 2.

I have never been so glad to say that I have seen a great movie. It is so wonderful to see that a film can be so moving and be a true family drama. This film is the best one yet. The characters are so real and realistic. They are very complex and show the viewer so much about life that we don't see in our day to day life. I also like how they portray the moral of the story. You don't see the cops that many times, but they are there. The story shows how some of the people really live their lives. It is so nice to see such a great story and great acting. It really is a great film. It is such a shame that this movie was not made with a much bigger budget. I really think that they could have done a much better job. They really made this film. I hope that it will get many awards and that it will be a big hit in the future.

I think that people who have seen this film are simply looking for a good action movie. If you want a good story, and are just looking for a good action movie, then you're probably not going to like this movie. If you want to watch a good action movie, then this is the movie for you.

I saw this movie at a movie theatre in Stockholm in 2009. It was my first time seeing it. I love it. I have seen it 7 times since. It's great. If you like thrillers and like Swedes, you'll love it. The director made a great movie. I can't say much else about it because I haven't read the book but I loved it. It's the movie I watched for the first time. I have never seen a movie like this before and I'm glad that I have seen it.

I've watched this movie many times and it keeps getting better every time I watch it. The story, acting, and scenery are the best I have seen in a while. It's very intense at times and makes you think about the consequences of your actions. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to have a good time with a great story.

So if you want to watch a movie with a lot of action, this movie is the perfect movie for you. The story is very good, and it is really great. I would give this movie a 10/10. I recommend you to watch this movie.

First of all, i would like to thank all of the critics and the critics that commented on this movie. They are all great. I love this movie. It is a lot like the movie "The Giver", and that movie is definitely my favorite movie of all time. It is a lot like the movie "The Da Vinci Code", and that movie is definitely my favorite movie of all time. This movie is definitely a great movie. It is very violent and it has great plot and it is a very well written movie. I also want to thank the actors and actresses for putting their bodies on the screen and put their blood in this movie. You really have to see this movie to understand how amazing it is. It is a movie that i would like to see again. It is not your average Hollywood movie. It is a great movie, and I love it. If you do not like this movie, then you probably don't like movies.

The movie is a great mix of reality and fiction, what i like about it is it makes you feel like you're right there in the middle of the action. I'm not saying the actors and actresses are perfect, but there are a lot of actors who have gone on to bigger and better things, some of which are in the movie (Denis Leary, Gwenyth Paltrow, Jason Bateman) but they are so very good that you cannot help but feel a connection with them. The story of the movie is a little bit more complicated than I would have thought. It was such a great mix of reality and fiction, that made the movie great. I think it's a great movie to see and I recommend it to anyone who wants a little more of a thrill. Great job to the filmmakers, and great job to everyone involved in the movie.

I've never seen such a good movie, even though I have seen many that I've loved. The story is well written, it's not a Hollywood movie, so I'm not surprised the production cost was so low. The acting is superb, all the actors are superb. Also, the dialogue is amazing. I am a fan of Icelandic movies, and I'm a big fan of Icelandic films, but I think this movie is really well done. It's like they know what they are doing, and it's not just a touristy movie with only one story line. It is so much more than that, and you really have to see it, it's one of the best movies I have ever seen. The production and the actors are so good that they make me think of them as real people. The scenery is beautiful and there is always a happy mood to the film. I can't wait for the DVD to come out. And don't forget to watch the Icelandic language version with English subtitles. I really like that!

It seems that this film has been in the can for about 2 years, so why it took so long to be released? Because it's not your typical action film, with all the stereotypes, violence and all. It's a real drama about a lonely and lonely man, who goes out to war for the sake of one man. He has a wife and kid and some close friends who will not let him suffer alone in war, so he sets out to make a difference. He makes his way through enemy lines, learning and getting stronger. He is an intelligent man, with a good brain, who wants to help people, no matter the cost. So he and his brother make a pact, that he will do whatever it takes to help the woman he loves. In this tale of one man's courage and redemption, it's not about the good guy versus the bad guy, or even the moral of the story. No, it's about one man's redemption and his way of living. The acting is superb, the camera work superb, the story is compelling and engrossing, and the characters are very real. The only flaw is that it's too slow at times, but it's still an excellent film. This one is a real "must see".

I would have to say that this is a top ten film in Sweden. "Let's start with the good and end with the bad" seems to be the slogan of the filmmakers. This film is a film that has an excellent ending and is based on a well-known story from the Swedish-speaking world, which is a tribute to the real heroes of the war who died during the war for the Red Army. The real story goes like this. In the year 1943, after a long march into Nazi occupied Russia, the Red Army marched into Stalingrad. The Germans tried to stop them with tanks and tanks and, when the Soviets came, they were greeted with fire and brimstone. The Red Army had to fight to the last man to keep the city of Stalingrad from falling. The story of the Soviet invasion of Stalingrad is a much more historical one, because it happened in the winter of 1941, not the summer of 1942. This film tells the story of the Soviet forces and how they fought the Germans, to get into the city of Stalingrad and save the lives of its citizens. This film is full of great details, and that's a surprise. This is a story of bravery and sacrifice, and it deserves more respect than it's getting. The film tells the story of a brave tank commander who was called on to lead his men into battle, which they never expected to be fighting against the Germans. He didn't even know they were going to attack him. The Russians were ready to surrender, but they did not expect to see the Red Army coming to save them. That's something not many people knew at that time. The heroes of the story are captured in an incredible fashion, and the film is full of beautiful photography and wonderful shots of Stalingrad. The acting is really good, and the film really shows the characters at their best. They are not just heroes, but people you would want to know. The Red Army was really the American allies, so the character of the tank commander is very well portrayed, and he is an honest and honorable man. I really like the way the director painted the Russian soldiers. They were not ideal people, but they were fighting for a good cause. One of the things I liked about this film is that it focuses on the poor, and the most important thing in this war was food. The Russians, for example, made bread and sausages and sold them. The Americans never stopped coming to the Red Army, and so the Russians never made bread for the Russians. The Russians are a very powerful and strong people, and this is something you don't see in the film, which is a shame. The film is really worth seeing.

I am so happy that i have found this movie. After seeing it a lot of times i still remember the first scene in the middle of the movie. The music was very good. The story was excellent and exciting. I will continue to watch the movie. I have been watching the movie for about 3 years and i still remember the first scene.

The author is making a very good point about the fear of violence, and its tragic effect on society, and for me, the movie represents the power of literature to teach us to stand up for what we believe is right and just. When I was growing up, the violence I saw on TV was usually the result of the other side having something to gain. Now, movies like this can tell the same story without blood and violence. The writer makes this point well, and this movie is worth watching. You really should read the book first, because it is very long and full of meaning. It is a truly interesting story about someone who was willing to stand up for what he believed in and what he knew he had to do. I hope more films like this are made and the word gets out about this great movie. I think that the movie may help you see that what you're seeing is not the whole truth.

This is a very powerful movie. The cast is brilliant. The story is very well told. I have seen a lot of movies lately but this one is the one that keeps me on the edge of my seat. The final act of the movie is so intense that I cannot stop and I'm still thinking about it. I haven't cried since I saw "The Shining" and this is the same thing. I can't describe how great this movie is. I recommend it to everyone. I have never seen such a beautiful and realistic film. The best movie of the year.

Hilarious and smart movie that you will not forget as you go about your life. Filled with wonderful details. The movie is about a little girl, named Lena, and her journey to find out who her real mother is. As she finds out that her mother is living in a hidden island, Lena, has to go on an adventure to find her mother and reunite her with her father. The movie is filled with many facts and quotes that you will think about for a while. I give this movie a 10, because it is definitely worth the time you will spend watching it. I encourage everyone to see it, you will not regret it.

This movie is a lot better than the ratings. This movie is a great action-packed thriller that is also a great documentary. The ending is one of the best endings I've ever seen. The only thing I didn't like about this movie is the ending. I don't know if it was because I'm Swedish and that's all I know about that part, but it was so bad. I recommend it. It has the best actors and the best action scenes I've ever seen. If you like action and documentaries, you should watch it. I hope that this movie will be on the top ten on the list. I would recommend it to everyone. This movie is great and I'm very proud of the Swedish director. I hope this movie will be nominated for Oscars, because this movie is a great film. I hope that the movie will win for the best foreign film, but it's a bit late.
