Jay Weissberg Variety A cop thriller that gets off to a rousing start but can't sustain its originality or sufficient motivation for the protag, "URO" keeps interest high for the first hour but then gets undermined by its unrelentingly flat palette. May 23, 2006 Full Review Jean-François Vandeuren Panorama Un polar d'une redoutable efficacit qui n'aura aucune difficult se tailler une place de choix parmi les quelques oeuvres ayant rcemment contribu au renouveau du genre Rated: 8/10 Jan 3, 2008 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Uro is an impressive showcase of Norwegian talent, even if the film takes its time to find its way.

Audience Member HP jobber i narkotikapolitiet. Roter seg skikkelig inn i narkotikamiljøet og setter seg opp mot sine kolleger. Etter min mening er HP en skikkelig teiting! Kan ikke gjøre noe riktig. Kan ikke si jeg helt forstod budskapet dene filmen forsøkte å formidle. Hvorfor han går i fengsel for et narkokvinnfolk er også for meg helt ubegripelig. Såvidt jeg orka å trille terningen her. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Good acting and a movie "well done". However, the plot does seem a bit unlikely... Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Hans-Petter (Nicolai Cleve Broch) also known as HP, is a undercover cop that works the streets of Oslo taking care of drugrelated crimes. With a troubled and delinquent past, he tries to find a better path in life by having joined the police force. Eventually he finds himself involved in all sorts of trouble when trying to make a bigger drugbust undercover. Everything in his past seems to come back to HP and he does not know where to turn in the end. This is not bad, it is a reasonably wellcrafted movie. Strong acting, good dramatization. The flaw is I reckon the script. It just does not hold up to 100%. It is a bit floaty and not focused enough. And one can sense that the makers have looked at both "Pusher" and "Rush" for more than inspiration. "Uro" is not bad as said, but it does not hit the nail fully on. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Vision de la double vie d'un policier en infiltration, le secret vis a vis de ses collègues et flirt avec les vices pour s'infiltrer !! HP ne pourra compter que sur lui meme !! Association Germano-polonaise réussi !! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Helt kul norsk film, som faktisk IKKE handler om sånn dingleskrangle-dings man har hengende i vinduet eller ute på verandaen og sånn. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Utvikler seg greit, men infodropsene om HP og faren hans er utrolig platte. Karakterene er meget dramatiske og overreagerende, med unntak av Flobergs ypperlige Frank. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
