A solid and atmospheric historical thriller. Although a bit long, it holds the attention well and the period setting looks great. Madsen effectively conjures up an uneasy underground world where any attempts to find moral clarity in taking action against occupation are thwarted by ambiguity, politics, treachery and greed. In such a world the protagonists, hitmen with a noble cause, become the innocents.
A WWII Danish drama that feels lost and over-long at times trying to find its identity and purpose meandering through too many confused patches. Other than that the execution is neat enough however not packing enough punch to wet your pants. Thure Lindhardt outshines an anodyne M "lips" Mikkelsen (almost in a supporting role despite his character making 50% of the film title).
