    Headhunters 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Jun, 2015

    A pretty fine thriller/crime drama from Norway. Unknowingly I somehow ended up watching the version dubbed in English, whcih people seem to have hated, but I didn't mind it all. At least they actually bother with things like syncing, non-monotone speaking and several voices (*cough' unlike Latvian TV dubbing *cough*).

    Anyway, the movie is perfectly watchable, even with some elements of a Guy Ritchie-esque plot points here and there.

    What an absolue shitshow the Middle East can be. Not only was it infuriating the watch those cunty acid throwning dicktards lie through their fucking teeth, but it drove me insane that the people still thank god afterwards. Don't watch this if you have high blood preasure or if you're prone to going on NSFW rants afterwards.

    Brilliantly minimalistic. One on-screen actor, the entire set is a coffin and yet still excrutiatingly exciting til the very end.

    I really wanted to like this and was even negotiating with myself until the very end if I could somehow give this at least 3 stars. But no.

    It's deathly slow and the ending is even more anti-climactic than I expected.

    Bonus points for two things that I really enjoyed (and why I wanted to like this more). First, the concept of a zombie plague where the world hasn't completely fallen apart, but is still functioning on a reasonable level.…
