    I like it when thriller movies get crazy. Well done. Now I want to read the novel.

    This was pretty good. And quite gory at times. ;-)

    If I'm not explicitly told, going into a film, that it's a black comedy or has black comedy elements, the humor completely blindsides me and my gut reaction is that the film is taking itself too seriously. It took the main character submerging himself in human shit for me realize it was okay to laugh. I'm not too bright, but I'm bright enough to realize that HEADHUNTERS is a clever and tense cat-and-mouse thriller. The escalation between the two leads unfolds in such an engaging way and I'm eager to watch it again.

    Why do Scandinavians make the wildest movies

    Headhunters is a sharp idea but the rushed "this is how I did it" ending completely ruins all the fun had up to that point and renders it a pointless exercise in style.

    "Headhunters is fast-paced, plenty violent, fairly funny (often darkly so) and contains a tightly twisty plot that damn near borders on confusing part of the time. But, that’s all part of the fun."

    Headhunters is perhaps one of the most faithful page-to-screen adaptation I've ever seen.

    Like the book, it is wonderfully tense. And, as thrillers go, Headhunters is one of the best I've seen.

    It's interesting how Headhunters became an international Scandinavian thriller hit. It is a movie that already had an American remake in the pipeline before it was released, and it made stars out of its director Mortem Tyldum (who would go on to direct the Academy Award nominated The Imitation Game) and for some strange reason also its main actor, Aksel Hennie (who would go on to star in The Martian and Hercules); he's an actor I just don't really get.…

    As far as thrillers go, this one out of Norway is as good as it gets. Lots of twists and turns along the way . . . even a little gratifying character transformation.

    Significantly better poophole scene than the one in Slumdog Millionaire.

    It's a bold move to cast a pair of morbidly obese twins as patrolmen in your hardcore thriller movie whose only purpose is the waddle around and look silly and then die while acting as human airbags for the main character.

    Definitely one of the more enjoyable thrillers I've seen, with a very engaging and interesting look at a character's life spiralling down from something relatively small. It was well paced, humorous at times and very solid writing and performances! Worth recommending!
