Wall Street drama. Heist picture. Hitchcockian thriller. Revenge flick. So are the parts that make up the new to Blu-ray Norwegian film "Headhunters," out now from Magnolia Home Entertainment. Check out the review of all the complexities below!
Cast: Aksel Hennie, Synnove Macody Lund, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau
Director: Morten Tyldum
Runtime: 100 minutes
Release Company: Magnolia Home Entertainment
The Flick: Love, love, love the serious complexity of 'Headhunters.' A clever and seamless blend of many genres wrapped in one cool and intricate story line makes for one fun outing. Director Morten Tyldum takes on a full range of movie types and excels in all with flying colors. (Think Danny Boyle meets Oliver Stone meets Brian De Palma – now that’s interesting!) Plus lead man Aksel Hennie goes above and beyond in a chameleon-like performance that kicks acting ass – going from slick to sick ain’t easy.
Best Feature: There’s a fabulous one-stop shop 'Behind the Scenes' doc that has interviews, on-set stuff and cool character insight galore.
Best Hidden Gem: Love that Hennie’s female flame Synnove Macody Lund is a tall and long legged blonde who is in real life a...movie critic? (Movie geeks rejoice!)
Worth the Moola: Great single feature plus a flick that exceeds all expectations – head out and hunt this one down.
