    I do like a bleak thriller.

    Headhunters really nails that skill down of making the protagonist feel in danger. It even has a few 'I don't see how he can get out of here' moments, which they actually keep plausible (for the most part). The protagonist is well written, with realistic yet conflicting personality traits, allowing the audience to root for him despite his flaws.

    There are a few moments that felt slightly dumb, especially (avoiding spoilers here) not checking…

    An entertaining violent and sometimes weirdly funny Norwegian thriller.

    In this character-driven heist film that suffers from unnecessary late complications, Headhunters is trying to do several things well, but has to settle for doing a great job on some things, and a middling job on others.

    Roger ist neben seiner beruflichen Tätigkeit als Headhunter mit seinem "Freund" Ove als Kunstdieb unterwegs. Dieses geht auch solange gut bis er dem ehemaligen Vorsitzenden eines Hightech Unternehmens und Elitesoldat Clas ein vermeintliches Bild stielt welches angeblich seit dem 2ten Weltkrieg verloren ist. Die gnadenlose Kampfmaschine startet nun eine blutige Hetzjagt.

    Ich bin mir unschlüssig, auf der einen Seite habe ich den Twist des Filmes so nicht kommen sehen. Auf der anderen Seite fand ich den Twist aber nicht so…

    Delightfully, crassly manipulative, with a rollicking plot that gives no fucks if it's totally improbable and a bizarre genrefuck.

    An excellent, cat and mouse game thriller. A big company headhunter, spends his spare time stealing high priced art for his long legged wife. Things go south when he steals art from the wrong guy. This sends him on a wild chase running from a man who can always track him. "Headhunters" is all kinds of awesome. It is a thriller with a purpose.

    the pace of "headhunters" is relentless; it's amazing how quickly and immensely things turn to sh*t for the protagonist, if you know what i mean. haha. i found all the plot twists fun to watch: sometimes humorous, sometimes horrific, sometimes both at once, in that tarantino-esque way. the film also reminded me a little bit of a sped up "blue ruin".

    but "headhunters" is definitely nordic in flavour, bleak and thrilling. some of the later scenes are unforgettably outrageous! i…

    This movie seems pretty dumb at first and honestly the english dub is really fuckin bad but it really picks up out of nowhere early in the 2nd act and doesnt let you down.

    Hilarious and intense in equal parts. Even more enjoyable on a 2nd viewing.
