Headhunters 2011

Movie Rating:

Plot

Roger, a corporate headhunter lives a luxury life with his tall, beautiful wife and as a side business he steals art paintings to pay the bills. His wife introduces him to a guy named Clas who claims to possess a lost art painting which is worth millions.

Thoughts

It's a stylish cat and mouse game between a normal guy and a cold blooded mercenary who uses his full military skills to hunt down the opponent. It's an engaging thriller ride that will definitely put you on the edge of your seat. One of Norway's finest actors Aksel Hennie was truly convincing and very much committed to Roger's character. GOT actor Nikolaj handles the intimidating villain role superbly. Director Morten Tyldum is very good in breaking your expectations of what Roger does next, that's the real fun factor of this movie. Overall, it provides a new touch to crime-thriller movies and till date this is the best Norwegian movie that I have ever seen.
