Headhunters

Oslo can you go? To the depths of man’s darkest and deadliest desires, per this fun foreign crime thriller.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Compared to the continent of Europe, the rate of death by guns in America is six times higher. You wouldn’t know it based on the current wave of crime films from that half of the globe. Arguably kicked off by the worldwide success of Sweden’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, the movies generally are ballsier and bloodier and, therefore, better.

Gone in 60 Seconds: Car Crash King Edition

For pure automobile action, it’s ‘Gone,’ baby, ‘Gone.’


Action

Rod Lott
Compared to its 2000 big-budget remake, H.B. Halicki's Gone in 60 Seconds is deficient in slickness, star power, performances, plotting and humor. Yet the 1974 indie original decimates the Hollywood version as an all-around entertainment. Why? Two simple reasons, boiled down to numbers: some 500 vehicles wrecked and a 40-minute chase scene.

Trance

‘Trainspotting’ engineer Danny Boyle delves back into the world of crime with ‘Trance,’ with less-than-hypnotic results.


Thriller

Rod Lott
After fiddling around with Oscar a couple of times with Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours, director Danny Boyle gets back to doing what he does best: the thriller. However, in Trance, opening today in Oklahoma City, the flashy filmmaker bears a light coat of rust.

If you’ve ever been to a hockey game, you’re surely familiar with the Zamboni — you know, the big vehicle that glides around the rink to smooth out the ice between periods.
