Rob Hunter Film School Rejects The setup feels familiar, and while there are certain beats that feel unavoidable as the film moves forward there are just as many expected moments that never come. Sep 11, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

mauro l Crap forever. (Mauro Lanari) Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Thrilling and captivating, yet not over the top violent and in your face. Excellent crime thriller. That being said, do not go thinking criminal networks are actually that brazen nowadays. Police fight hard battles every day to ensure those things do not happen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Audience Member Gunnar Gunnerson (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) was Iceland's biggest drug dealer until his territory was taken over by Serbian immigrant Sergej (Zlatko Krickic). Now in the slammer, Gunnar wants revenge, so turns to rookie cop Hannes (Darri Ingolfsson), new to Internal Affairs, telling him that drug division chief Margeir (Sigurdur Sigurjonsson) is on Sergej's payroll. Hannes is fresh to the force, a neophyte who's unable to handle the sadistic training for Special Ops; he's fallen into IA but takes to the job with gusto, saying he doesn't mind being hated. Maybe that's because his father, Arni (Theodor Juliusson), a hardass police-force vet, has little emotional warmth, making Hannes especially keen to prove his worth while claiming not to care what colleagues think of him. He recruits Andrea (Agusta Eva Erlendsdottir), languishing on desk duty ever since a nervous breakdown following a brutal assault, planting her in Margeir's office to dig up the dirt. However, Margeir realizes he's being watched after finding a tracking device under his car, so a cat-and-mouse game develops in which everyone, including Hannes' wife, Ragna (Thora Bjorg Helga), and their toddler, is in danger... "Borgríki 2" (Brave Men´s Blood) is a by-the-book cop drama with a script that resembles any number of TV police shows we see today. It could´ve been swedish or danish for all that matters. The inspiration is clearly from all the Nordic police dramas we have seen the past years, but fails to add anything new to the genre except the fact that it´s set on Iceland, which is intriguing. It suffers however from the same problem all the swedish cop dramas suffers from. A believable structure with actors that convince you. This is apparently a follow up to "Borgríki" which I´m not familiar with and have not seen. The plot, the acting, the general set up feels more tv than film and it never really engages you during the running time. The characters are not really fleshed out and the action is not fully believable in my point of view. It´s just the lovely Agusta Eva Erlendsdottir that stands out in "Borgríki 2".
