The parts barely relate, never mind work together.

Given how insubstantial Headhunters is, stopping us from thinking critically may have been the point.

The scenes of graphic violence are drawn out to the point where they overwhelm the story.

Brown's panic is capably rendered, but his ordeals are not worth enduring to the bitter end.

Plenty of twisty scripting makes the queasy damage seem conceptually neat and tidy, as if that's a good idea, but what we need here is a little more meat.

"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.

Austin Chronicle

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.

One of those all-too-rare movies that puts you through the emotional ringer, playing on your worst fears and most passionate desires.

"Headhunters" is a rather strange film, but it's also a rather entertaining one.

We Got This Covered

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.

Headhunters is ridiculous, macabre, fun - see the original before it's irrevocably ruined by it's Hollywood remake.

Headhunters works best when punishing its lead excessively, continuously, and for no apparent reason.

Tyldum's highly accomplished and darkly comical thriller should be seen and savoured for its poise, pace and Hennie, as well as for its filmmaking techniques ...

Headhunters seems to take place in the same universe presided over by the prankster Gods in the Coen brothers' flicks; the very ones who punish anyone who dares to make a decision based on greed. More movies should be set there.

A cat-and-mouse game with the giddy excitement of a heist movie.

Many of the elements are familiar, but the setting, the actors and the director's confident style set them apart.

Headhunters' title rapidly turns literal, and what seemed like a lightweight heist thriller careens into a bloody-minded game of cat and mouse.

...a sordid blast of delirious violence, brutal corporate satire, and male inadequacy.

A super-slick thriller that doesn't let up, with exceptional performances all round. Make sure you catch it before the inevitable US remake rears its head.
