Crazy movie! So strange and then keeps getting stranger.

Great film! Intelligently done. There is extensive violence as this is an action/thriller. Love the lead actor.
By the way, another great film with the lead actor is Max Manus (also available at vpl)

Morten Tyldum’s caustic satire on boardroom politics flies off the screen in a flurry of gut-wrenching violence and morbidly comical twists and turns. Panicked close-ups and widescreen mayhem are tossed about with expert precision while a devilishly clever script ensures the impeccable cast is put to good use. As Roger, Norwegian star Aksel Hennie uses his 5’6” frame and baby-faced features for all they’re worth, portraying a pint-sized goliath overcompensating at every turn in direct contrast to Coster-Waldau’s towering egotist. Their epic battle of wits crosses so many lines (warning: feces and dead pets) that the inevitable chase scenes might as well have taken place on a runaway roller coaster. Both a mean-spirited lampoon of all things corporate and a thriller of the first order, "Headhunters" is one of the better films to come out of Scandinavia in years!

Roger (played by Aksel Hennie, Scandinavia's answer to Steve Buscemi) has his share of problems. His art thefts are barely paying for his expensive lifestyle, which includes an expensive wife. And he has the bad luck to cross a Special Forces type, who is out to kill him by any means necessary. it is not certain if this film wants to be more like No Country for Old Men, or more like Fargo, but there is a definite Coen brothers influence.

Orginal story, very well executed. So worth your time - wish more US movies were this original. True that the end is a little too neatly tied up but it's still a stellar movie.

Clever action thriller! Very entertaining!

A very clever, entertaining thriller that, although farfetched, hangs together perfectly.

Good movie, dark-spirited and macho but entertaining, sort of like the Coen Bros. Had high expectations, and was disappointed a bit as I didn't particularly like or sympathize with the "hero", and the film seems to depend on a kind of schadenfreude to entertain - I just wasn't in the mood for it that day.
