Movie Reviews:

  • CinemaSerf: Mads Mikkelsen seems to be trying to do his level best to reinvigorate Danish cinema for an international audience – and here, again, he performs well. This time, he leads a slightly disparate band of geeks and misfits who are trying to get to the bottom of a train crash that killed his wife. Was it an accident or something far more sinister? It turns out that Mads (“Markus”) has some serious military training so their investigation is not without some rather arbitrarily applied justice as they seek the truth. The rest of his gang provide great support, as does his rather bemused teenage daughter who is obviously struggling with her own feelings of remorse as her father appears to go off the rails, somewhat. It is a violent film, but the violence is cleverly wrapped in a blanket of humour and an almost slap-stick style of action that brings plenty of smiles as they go along. I didn’t love the ending, but I did enjoy the film.
