Paradise lost
28 April 2003 | by stenssonSee all my reviews

This Swedish action movie (or maybe it is a thriller) is of no interest for those who don't live in a Swedish environment and don't read Swedish evening papers. The first part, "Sprängaren", was better. The intrigues at the editor's office was more funny there, more ironic and with more interesting people.

The Yugoslav gangsters here are nothing more than evil characters like those in Donald Duck. Helena Bergström is all right in the main part, but doesn't she have any other ambition than to appear in her husband's, Colin Nutley's, films? He has got quite a register, but that doesn't mean he is good on everything. Especially not in making thrillers.
