Critic Reviews for Evil (Ondskan)
Extremely watchable, even if it never goes as deep as it should.
Hafström's dramatic sense is ... pedestrian and snail's-pace obvious.
Movies like Evil entertain us by serving sweet revenge on a platter, and director Mikael Håfström manipulates emotions more intelligently than most.
Wilson, who plays Erik, had never been in a film before Evil -- which was nominated for a best foreign-language Oscar in 2004 -- and there's no reason that he can't make many more of them.
A commentary on the troubling gray area between acceptable and unacceptable forms of violence, especially where the molding of boys into 'real men' is concerned.
The way it plays out, Evil feeds the audience's bloodlust as much as it decries the worst acts of its characters.
Audience Reviews for Evil (Ondskan)
Great movie. Lundstrom is amazing as Eriks nerdy friend Pierre. The cinematography and musical score are both really good. One of my favorite Swedish movies.
This movie really lived up to it's name. These kids were creepy, evil, horrible human beings. I was at the edge of my seat for most of the movie. Thank god I don't know any kids like these kids.
Gripping film of a teenage boy who's life has been dominated with violence from the world around him, and within his own family. The violence which erupts in the schools shows how mean kids can be, but raises the question of why they are mean in the first place. The main character Erik is expelled from school for lashing out at anyone who he feels to be in his way, and is sent to a prestigious private school where the students may just have more control than the teachers, and run with a rigorous, unjust code that makes sense only to those who run with it. Erik(Andreas Wilson) is faced with the choice of facing up to the madness at school for himself and his friends, or to fall back into the "home" life he fled from.
