The Marco Effect

The Marco Effect ★½

Did noone bother to read the script before shooting started!? Or was this fucked up while shooting it? A two hour litany of terrible story-telling choices.

I’ll just mention the most glaringly idiotic mistake:

Carl Mørck is a misanthropic asshole. But redeemed by his investigative skills. And he’s got a pretty good sense of humour. He gives people just enough reasons to tolerate his asshole-ishness.

This Carl Mørck is a misanthropic, humourless asshole and, even in his most shining moments, a half decent investigator at best and an inept detective most of the time. An asshole without any redeeming features to speak of is just an asshole.
