      Nathan L I really thought the acting and the trope of who done it was done well. I liked the leading actor. The dubbing was done really well; i.e.,the English sounded and looked like it was coming through the actor's lips, The lead detective had a mental disorder, but he was also intelligent, had psychic abilities, and he wasn't fearful. It wasetter than most garbage movies out there. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Luis M. D This is a competent neo-noir thriller with excellent characterizations and a sober execution. Along the way we come to meet a larger-than-life, somehow unrealistic Nietzschean character who kills people only to "make the world a better place." Unfortunately, near the end, as the plot intensifies and we expect a full explanation, many points remain obscure or unanswered. You have to double your attention and may still need an external help to get the full picture. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Wolfgang G Bordertown: Ein besserer Ort ist ein Mystery-Drama-Krimi von Juuso Syrjä… Als das Gesicht des inhaftierten Serienmörders Lasse Maasalo und der Text "Let's make the world a better place" mit Blut auf eine Unterführung gemalt werden… Ich habe die Serie noch nie gesehen, so bezieht sich meine Rezension nur auf den Film… Ein Krimi mit einem langsamen Rhythmus, mich überrascht aber seine hohe Qualität… er setzt voll auf seine nahen perfekten Charaktere, die fesselnd sind… mir scheint die Handlung aber an manchen Stellen ein wenig unlogisch… Rated 4 out of 5 stars 09/01/23 Full Review Adam H It's fun for a fan of Sorjonen to see the characters again. It raises some intriguing elements, but ultimately what it does with them is kind of a scramble, and several plot points are glossed over with even less of a jab at explanation than in the series. The character arc is also a bit unsatisfying IMO. Better than El Camino (as a sequel to Breaking Bad), but not by that much. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review T T Not sure why this movie got such a low rating. Anyway, I thought it was a pretty decent Finnish crime thriller. I enjoyed it although I didn't have time to watch the 3 seasons of the series yet. Looking forward to doing that very soon. Most reviews I read on other review boards recommended watching the series first, since it provides a lot of the backstory and predates this sequel. So, obviously it makes sense, if you have the time to watch the 3 season series, do it first. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/07/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
