Critic Review - Newsday

"Headhunters" is a bit like an Ikea desk assembled with your nondominant arm -- sleek and attractive, but likely to fall to pieces if you look at it too hard.

What a really fatuous review. It's Scandinavian so you came up with that lame simple about Ikea. Really--that's the best you could do? I found it way too violent but riveting--even entertaining in parts. And all of the performances were really fine.

On the contrary. Obvious or not, the Ikea analogy conveys exactly what he thinks about the movie (read his full review).

In what way Anna? And how do desks fall apart through the power of vision? I am looking at my ikea desk right now and no signs of it disintegrating; ah perhaps because i used both arms! Really terrible analogy as who puts a desk together with one arm anyway?
Don't quit your day job Rafer, whatever that is!

The fact that Rafer Guzman finds an Ikea desk visually appealing is a good reason not to trust his opinion. That is, unless you find particle board, plastic and cheap metal head-turning elements of furniture.
