Headhunters is an intriguing action thriller that relies on both stunts and the acts of its diverse mains characters, played by well-cast main actors Aksel Hennie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, in order to tell its story.

This film is filled with suspense, violence, duplicity and emotion. The plot has a number of interesting twists. It is a very gritty thriller.

Though not completely satisfying or believable, the absurd cat-and-mouse potboiler at least is always entertaining and biting doggy style.

"Headhunters" is an absurd amount of grisly fun, which is a good thing, since, looked at in any great detail, it probably doesn't hold up all that well.

Headhunters (Hodejegerne) is a roiling Norwegian mix of Hitchcock and Wile E. Coyote, with a generous dose of feces and blood. Headhunters is a mind game. And a blood sport.

... sort of like being mugged by a banshee: It's all very loud and exciting and after it's over you're left with a vague feeling of unease to go along with the lighter wallet.

The film holds its twists too close to the chest, and there's little to chew on till the ambitiousness of its plotting is revealed late in the film.

By film's end, we're deep into Coen brothers territory, with an extra splash of Sam Raimi-level gore.

"Headhunters" isn't a pretty film, and it doesn't always entirely make sense, but it races along like a man chased by killers.

The good guy in the Norwegian "Headhunters" looks like a bad guy, and the bad guy looks like a good guy. And that's just one of the ways this dazzling movie messes with us.
