"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.

"Headhunters" will indeed hand you your head.

May 17, 2012
...a sordid blast of delirious violence, brutal corporate satire, and male inadequacy.

May 11, 2012
This is one funny, gory, high-class crime thriller and my favorite Norwegian export since 'Troll Hunter.'
Full Review | Original Score: A minus
May 11, 2012
A cat-and-mouse game with the giddy excitement of a heist movie.

Do yourself a favor and see this one before some Yank director gets it all wrong.

Headhunters is a slick entertainment with well-orchestrated chases and bloody shootouts, though its characterizations are shallow and sketchy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 10, 2012
It's crisp entertainment even as plot absurdities gum up the works - you can almost hear the pages turn as you watch.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 10, 2012
The scenes of graphic violence are drawn out to the point where they overwhelm the story.
May 10, 2012
When we get the remake in a year or two, I hope it retains the edge and compact energy of director Morten Tyldum's movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

I knew I was being manipulated and didn't care. It was a pleasure to see how well it was being done.

May 8, 2012
Clearly, there are streaks of farce in all this, as well as serious cracks in logic, and those who like their black comedy done to a crisp will happily feast on what Tyldum dishes up.
May 7, 2012
Despite the gaps in logic the movie...is cannily put together and easily holds your attention.

May 4, 2012
A brisk, violent tour of the dangerous parts of Norway.
May 4, 2012
Director Morten Tyldum keeps the plot twisting in a manner that feels both surprising and logical, but be warned: at least two of Hennie's speedily improvised escapes get pretty messy.

Whatever the cinematic equivalent of a kick in the pants might be, you'll find it at Headhunters.
May 4, 2012
Headhunters is slick and spritely, a mixture of corporate skullduggery and low-life slapstick that plays like The Firm meets Blood Simple.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 3, 2012
"Headhunters" is a well-oiled, nasty machine.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
May 3, 2012
That's some good acting by Hennie, but it's also good writing by co-scribes Lars Gudmestad and Ulf Ryberg. They freshen up familiar caper and thriller tropes, adapting the bestselling prose Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo.

This Norwegian thriller has a winning cutthroat perversity.
