In Order of Disappearance Reviews

September 8, 2016
Swift, fleet-of-foot, and efficient, with clean lines and a sleek finish, the Norwegian black comedy In Order of Disappearance glides through the world like a perfectly engineered car or a gorgeous piece of modern furniture.
September 8, 2016
Combines black comedy with the dour, humorless mood of Nordic noir - two elements that are not, for Moland at any rate, as complementary as one might expect.

What saves it, paradoxically - even, at times, delightfully - from skidding off course into cliche is the profound appeal of its middle-of-the-road, but never dull, protagonist.

Ultimately, the film is carried by Skarsgård in yet another triumph in a Norwegian film.

The killings are creative and brutal, but eventually the whole structure of it becomes an empty, slick exercise in style.
August 26, 2016
A cheeky black comedy and worthy Norwegian successor to Kill Bill.
August 26, 2016
Moland possesses the rare ability to take a story where the viewer knows almost exactly what will happen and make it surprising.
August 25, 2016
A delicious Norwegian film full of icy landscapes and icier hearts.
August 25, 2016
An absorbing and atmospheric entry in what we might as well term the "red snow" genre.

Fabulous scenery, dopey cops, hapless hoods, furious spouses and a Froot Loops-loving kid round out a picture that gives new meaning to "icing" someone.

Skarsgård mopes around throughout, largely ceding the film to the zoo of supporting actors, all of whom are TV-type crooks in the familiar post-Coen/Tarantino style and do not help the story's lack of conviction.

It's an incredibly satisfying role in which to encounter Skarsgard, who fashions himself as the human equivalent of his unstoppable snowplow, confronting even the most seemingly insurmountable obstacles head-on.

In Order of Disappearance provides a wonderful vehicle for Stellan Skarsgard's stone-faced gravitas and calm intelligence.
September 12, 2014
Hans Petter Moland's icy, Norwegian-set thriller treads an uncomfortable line between hardboiled Nordic noir and tongue-in-cheek humour.
September 12, 2014
In Order of Disappearance is an entertaining revenge thriller spawned where Scandi-noir meets Quentin Tarantino.
September 12, 2014
This is a derivative movie, whose comic entanglements are perhaps there to provide an alibi for the obvious plot implausibilities - but it's well made, great looking, and nicely acted

You've seen almost everything here before, but never within the same film.
