Zero Tolerance Reviews

  • Aug 06, 2019

    Johan Falk (Jakob Eklund), a Gothenburg police detective and former member of Nationella insatsstyrkan, gets involved in a shooting with jewel robbers on Christmas Eve. After the smoke has cleared, one robber, shot by his accomplice, and an innocent bystander, are dead. Three witnesses, including Helén Andersson (Marie Richardson), identify the well known criminal Leo Gaut (Peter Andersson) as the leader in this robbery gone wrong. Gaut soon threatens the three witnesses and Johan ends up being the accused. In the search for the truth he sees no other way than to take the law into his own hands to bring down Gaut and becomes hunted by his own colleagues at the same time... "Noll Tolerans" or "Zero Tolerance" is the first film in the series about the police detective Johan Falk. A string of films has followed the past years. "Noll Tolerans" is a so so Swedish cop thriller with not that convincing acting, thin storyline and a bit wobbly direction to my mind. It does have some moments of suspense nevertheless and I do like the lovely Jaqueline Ramel as the police detective Anja Månsdottir. However, "Noll Tolerans" hardly ends up amongst good Swedish films.

    Exciting and believable thriller. Kriminalinspektör Johan Falk is undoubtedly the toughest of fictitious Swedish cops, leaving Beck, Wallander and others far behind.

    Absolutely one of the better Swedish movies ever. Very good story, if it had have a bit more action it would have been a 5 star.

    eine echte ueberraschung: regisseur anders nilsson legt hier spuerbar mehr wert auf eine moralisch komplexe charakterzeichnung in allen schattierungen von grau und auf eine allmaehlich sich steigernde eskalationsdramaturgie als auf nonstop-action. das macht NOLL TOLERANS zum zwar vergleichsweise langsamen, aber mit andauernder laufzeit immer intensiveren polizeithriller. nilsson legte im anschluss noch zwei nicht weniger hochgelobte sequels vor - ich bin mehr als gespannt!

    Til tider en god svensk krim, men alt i alt synes jeg at manuset faller igjennom som veldig lite troverdig. Har vanskeligheter med å tro på mange av situasjonene og tingene som skjer, og jeg satt igjen med flere spørsmål enn svar når rulleteksten begynte. Det kan være vel og bra det, men dette er en type genrefilm som er myntet på en historie der man bør få svar på ting som skjer...
