      94% Tomatometer 181 Reviews 88% Audience Score 500+ Verified Ratings During the last desperate days of WWII, a solitary prospector (Jorma Tommila) crosses paths with Nazis on a scorched-earth retreat in northern Finland. When the Nazis steal his gold, they quickly discover that they have just tangled with no ordinary miner. While there is no direct translation for the Finnish word "sisu", this legendary ex-commando will embody what sisu means: a white-knuckled form of courage and unimaginable determination in the face of overwhelming odds. And no matter what the Nazis throw at him, the one-man death squad will go to outrageous lengths to get his gold back -- even if it means killing every last Nazi in his path.

      Audience Says

      A gory grindhouse good time, Sisu should satisfy almost anybody who's wondered what it might look like if John Wick went up against Nazis.

      David Stratton The Australian It's all very silly, but it's so over-the-top that it becomes blissfully entertaining. Rated: 3/5 Aug 5, 2023 Full Review Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald Rather than being directed to avert your gaze from the effects of violence, you’re watching it magnified to the point of the cartoonish. It’s lavishly embellished with blood and gore. Talk about a guilty pleasure. Rated: 3.5/5 Jul 28, 2023 Full Review Alexandra Heller-Nicholas AWFJ.org Sisu is as good as you’ve heard – bring extra popcorn. Jun 18, 2023 Full Review Ezequiel Boetti Otroscines.com Laconic as its protagonist, the film deploys a choreographed and stylized display of viscera and blood-dripping limbs to create something like “A Thousand and One Ways to Die in War.” [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4/5 Jan 8, 2024 Full Review Vinamra Mathur Firstpost The film is only 93 minutes long but every 15 minutes takes us to a new chapter. What catches your eye is the spectacular cinematography by Kjell Lagerroos. The film also enjoys being barbaric and brutal, it makes bloodshed looks beautiful. Rated: 3/5 Nov 27, 2023 Full Review Tomás Andrés Guerrero Sensacine A scandalously entertaining movie where blood is spilled like beer at a bachelor's party... [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 4.5/5 Nov 8, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
