A really good thriller that keeps you guessingBy Wooster (312 reviews) from Tonbridge , 04 Apr 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I'm not a fan of foreign language films as I find the subtitles distracting, hence I wasn't expecting to enjoy Headhunters that much.
How wrong was I!
It's a fast moving, gripping and original tale with plenty of action, (some bloody), and loads of twists and turns along the way.
The subtitles hardly bothered me at all - all though they did flash on and off the screen rather quickly to take in two or three lines of text - but that's just a minor gripe.
Headhunters was easily one of the best films I've seen this year.
Don't miss it!

not badBy a customer , 13 Dec 2013A good thriller, a bit too much violence for my liking, had to go fast forward in few places. It keeps you guessing until the very end. When they tried to put it all together in the end (as to save main character) didn't make sense at times. However enjoyed watching it
yuppie killfestBy mocgbr (1 review) , 25 Nov 2013Yuppie art thief meets his match in a Lannister. Interesting as you really aren't rooting for the main character initially. If you can cope with subtitles this is a must watch.
An absolute beaut of a film!By a customer , 06 Nov 2013Great film with so many twists in it. You can't help but like the main character even though he's far from a saint and willing him on through out the film. I thoroughly recommend.
Classy gory thriller.By Zebras22 (124 reviews) , 01 Nov 2013Great thriller. Well acted and very gory in bits. Better to watch the subtitled version rather than the dubbed English version. Puts the American films to shame.
a really good thrillerBy davidginsberg (114 reviews) from London , 25 Oct 2013: I heard a lot about this Danish crime thriller and it was actually pretty good if a touch implausible. Its about a guy who is a corporate headhunter by day but has a side line in robbing his clients of their valuable artwork. This all goes very badly wrong when he targets a Dutch guy who turns out to be an ex special forces soldier. Most of the movie is taken up with a cat and mouse chase but it is very entertaining. It should make an interesting English language remake.
