Review

Hollywoodish Norwegian crime thriller about semi-professional bank robbers and their getaway. Directed by first-timer Lars Berg, the film doesn't look too good early on, but the script is fine and gives room for both excitement and some useful psychological studies (with interesting hints of the Stockholm syndrome). The acting is uneven, ranging from some pitiful lines delivered by the overacting Morten Faldaas, to some very fine scenes between Barker and Oftebro. The latter, who is the dynamic force in this film, is perfectly cast and carries the weight of the action on his macho shoulders. No wonder Anette Hoff was captivated.
