    I could write something pithy like "They don't make thrillers like this in America" but to be honest, they very rarely make thrillers like this ANYWHERE.

    This was an absolute delight. It's dark and funny and violent. I'm glad I finally got around to it.

    This entertaining and original thriller may have some flaws (not much character development/lack of visual style), but it is still a fun film led by a quirky cast of talented actors.

    To end my Norwegian phase and admiration for Morten Tyldum, I watched Headhunters.

    WOW, this is what every thriller should be. This is the type of movie America deserves to produce, but not the one America needs. For this reason, only by scavenging for hidden gems inside internation/foreign cinema can you find genuine greatness, were movies are not influenced by a studio's financial agendas. Dramatic, suspenseful and creative, all the elements combined in a great movie. Just what has been lacking in American cinema for the past years, excellent storytelling in this genre.

    A surprisingly taut, bloody thriller. Headhunters manages to be darkly comic and incredibly exciting thanks to the solid direction and excellent performances. The ending is a bit by-the-numbers, but it worked in the context of the narrative so it didn't bother me too much. Overall, this is an excellent film all around.

    Headhunters' greatest quality is, by far, its voracious suspense, the film's constantly thrilling and that's something really hard to accomplish or, at least, only a few can do it right. That happens due to its fast and loud soundtrack and bombastic energy that fits perfectly with the film's constant turns and twists that make it constantly interesting as well. Also, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's performance is stunning but, even if it's almost a flawless work that feels like a nowadays version of No Country for Old Men, I think it lacked some class and style in the making of it to be a masterpiece.

    Amazing. Had no idea where the film was going, it was a thrilling adventure finding out.

    Starke Scenen, blasse Nebendarsteller.
    Ein Ende wie es "alt Hollywood" nicht besser hinkriegen könnte.
    Netter blutiger Thriller.

    Um thriller sanguinolento e com reviravoltas divertidas, apesar de excessivas, o longa consegue prender a atenção e divertir pelas situações cada vez mais catastróficas pelo qual passa o protagonista.
    Constantemente abusando do absurdo, que vai desde sobreviver de um acidente impossível até nano-robôs rastreadores, o filme parece não ter uma grande preocupação com verossimilhanças ou mesmo coerência no roteiro, focando no desespero crescente do personagem de Aksel Hennie, uma mistura de Steve Buscemi e Tom Hiddleston nascido na Noruega, em…
