    I can't express how thoroughly enjoyable this film is. The first time I viewed it I didn't know anything about it and was surprised by how refreshingly original the filmmakers were able to make a dramatic heist film (of sorts). In fact this film seems to traverse several genres (drama, romance, comedy, action, heist) and is one of the only films that I can recall where it actually works and works seamlessly.

    The main character is instantly likable/relatable from his…

    'Headhunters' is an action thriller where the 'player gets played' motto is very well explored and where there is also room for love, regret, treason and revenge, all adequately portrayed in one exceeding plot.

    Loved this one. Plays remarkably slick for a low-budget Norwegian film. It is wonderfully directed with a high-energy crime thriller plot. It sports a great cast with just the right touches of WTF throughout. I'm a fan of this one.

    Why watch it? You like creative crime thrillers; you like Norway

    Excellent Norwegian thriller with a lot of great twists. I'm very glad I didn't read up on it beforehand. I'd never seen Aksel Hennie in anything before, but he's absolutely brilliant here.

    Good ass flick. Got a bit convoluted with the plot twists, but moved along and had a dynamic character development and change from beginning to end.

    Quite a slick film. Well done, although I'm still not sure I understand the motivations behind all that's going on.

    Headhunters is tonally inconsistent in a jarring way, but the experience is ultimately worthwhile, particularly for fans of the thriller genre who ache for novelty, rather than formula, in their films. The brutal and darkly comic consequences that befall Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) are disproportionate to his sins, and this makes him surprisingly easy to empathize with—in spite of the arrogance and aloofness that characterize our early moments with him. The plotting doesn't intentionally seek to confuse, but there are enough turns and surprising moments to call this an adept, if imperfect, crime thriller.
