    goes off the rails into ridiculousness but i still enjoyed it thoroughly. like a fine, twisting puzzle mixed with a cat-and-mouse chase.

    Perhaps the biggest problem with describing what "Headhunters" is about (and, as a result, one of the biggest problems with enjoying the film itself), is that it doesn't really seem to be sure what kind of film it wants to be.

    Around half way through, the film becomes a less realistic version of the horror classic "The Hitcher", except that the villain is no Rutger Hauer and as this villain's methods become more and more extreme, the protagonist appears to…

    This movie has a good reputation (Renommé in Norwegian) in Norway, but I feel it goes too fast. They should have pulled out moments more.

    Audiences who found The Dark Knight Rises suffocatingly grim won’t know quite what to make of Headhunters, a Norwegian thriller adapted from the book by acclaimed crime novelist Jo Nesbø. Bruce Wayne has it easy compared to the slick, Napoleonic antihero played by the charismatic Aksel Hennie – in the picture’s biggest gross out moment, he must submerge himself completely in a pool of excrement, using only a straw to breath. After sabotaging a job opportunity for the businessman that…

    Clever plotting (especially in the way outlandish twists are grounded in plausibility, and minor details spring up to play major parts in later scenes) and a respect for the basics (characters, story, efficient direction) make this a pretty fun thriller. Nothing exceptional but it's put together with a lot of finesse.

    A totally incoherent plot, full of holes, but sometimes that just doesn't matter when a film is as entertaining as Headhunters is.

    Starting as what seems to be a typical thriller about an art thief, Headhunters quickly escalates into a tense game of cat and mouse across a beautiful Norwegian setting. It often made me wince and laugh in the same scene and I have a feeling it may have influenced both Alpha Papa and Inside No 9, two of…

    ★★★½ Rewatched by Judah Finnigan 15 Mar, 2014

    as much fun as i'd remembered. crafty, devilish thriller that excels with a nasty, absurdly hilarious middle chapter, punishing its protagonist with bloody, cruel, coen-like glee. the plotting on either side is decent, if a little heavy on exposition in the final stretch, and the short-man syndrome stuff is whatever, but to see our man covered head-to-toe in shit and driving a tractor with a dead dog skewered on the forks is to forget all else.

    Entretenido thriller con unos personajes muy bien trazados y que te mantiene pegado a la pantalla de principio a fin. Astuta, tramposa, humor negro, provocación y violencia, lo tiene todo para pasar un buen rato con unos giros, que la convierten en una película bastante entretenida
