The most impressive danish thriller since Pusher
20 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

Not only did it outclass the best danish movies in it's genre, it outclassed the production value and genius script writing of any other danish film I've seen for a very, very long time. This is a masterpiece, and you NEED to watch this movie. The great thing about this movie is it's not just some stupid action thriller with a weak plot and tons of violence, it's a very clever, dark thriller that touches upon very heavy subjects. We follow Zaid as his agenda switches from justice to revenge. It becomes almost perverse as he unleashes his inner hatred, and throws away everything that matters in order to get his revenge. I'm incredibly impressed with the cinematography, the acting, the plot and the surprising amount of symbolism and underlying thought processes that went into this movie. Even the music is amazing. I appreciate the great efforts from the producers, and i really wish they make more incredible movies. The danish film industry needs more masterpieces like this one.
