The Marco Effect

The Marco Effect ★★

As someone who proudly has Ulrich Thomsen as favorite actor, it truly pains me that the franchise with the new cast is off to such a bad start.

Really. This script fails so hard on making the story interesting all the way through - like the payoff is fine - but the rest is just SO boring with plenty of plot holes and not to mention american clichés that really doesn't work in Nordic Noir genre at all...

While Ulrich Thomsen is kindda the only one trying to lift this up the rest of the cast like Zaki Youssef & Sofie Torps becomes completely sidelined.

I really hope they get their shit together redeems themselves with the next ones, cause sorry. This is by far the weakest of Departement Q films.
