British critics have welcomed the new blockbuster drama adapted from Norwegian Jo Nesbø’s bestseller.
The film (Hodejegerne), starring Aksel Hennie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, is about a headhunter who lives a life as an art thief. It was released in Norway last year.
It has received critical acclaim from The Independent. The paper has given the film four stars saying the “plot roars along”. The Daily Mail also gives the films four stars saying the film is “well worth hunting out.”
Director Morten Tyldum who debuted in 2003 with award winning drama “Buddy” has continued his success with Headhunters with this 15 certificate-rated film.
There are also continuing talks regarding the blockbuster becoming a Hollywood film. British journalist and screenwriter Sacha Gervasi is to write the screenplay.
The Daily Express concludes “Headhunters” must be seen before the Hollywood version.
