In his debut as director, Nikolas Winding Refn has hit the nail on the head with this thrilling story of math gone wrong in the worst case scenario in the life of a pusher. It became quickly a cult movie in Scandinavia, with its unpredicable plot and chillingly credible performances of lead actors Kim Bodnia and Zlatko Buric. Exciting to the very end of the increasingly more and more desperate measures of Frank (Kim Bodnia) to break even of the money he owns to ex-Yugoslav kingpin (Zlatko Buric). Will he make it, or will he reap what he has sown? With a great soundtrack matched with a kind of close-to-reality feeling only found in European film, this is the kind of cult classic which hammers Hollywood to the ground! A cornerstone! ("Franke, Franke ...")

If you know anyone that's even thinking about getting into dealing, this is the best drugs education film you can get them. The Danish language, typically understated, adds to the sinister and sardonic atmosphere already found within the grim dynamics between the characters in this film. A gripping drama - be glad you're not Frankie.

A truely magnificant film that deals with the stark realities of the drug world in Copenhagen, 'Pusher' moves away from the trend of glorifying the drug trade as is so often done in modern movies. The exceptional camera work and the dark broody black and white screen add a darkness and intense realism which puts this film in the same league as other great continental films such as 'La Haine' and 'Man bites dog'.

This tour-de-force into the Copenhagen underground uses film technics and a cast that truely captivates you and pulls you in. You can't help feeling sorry for the guy as he gets deeper and deeper into trouble, even though he is a drugdealer. The acting in the movie is superb and this combined with a lot of handheld camera make you forget at times that this is drama not documentary. If you can ignore the fact that the movie is danish, this is truely a movie not to miss.

Apparently this gangster film was really huge in Europe. I’m not sure how ‘big’ it was here, in Britain, but, in my opinion, it’s no ‘Lock Stock.’

Firstly, it feels cheap. I know a lot of people who enjoyed it will call it ‘gritty,’ but Reservoir Dogs was ‘gritty’ and still felt stylish at the same time. ‘Pusher’ just feels like it was filmed with a video camera without anyone’s permission on each location.

It’s about a gangster, who seems to dabble in everything from drugs to armed robbery, trying to organise a drugs deal which – guess what – goes wrong and leaves him in debt to an even nastier gangster. Do we care? Not really.

I have no problem with films about gangsters (or ‘bad guys’ to use another term). We don’t have to like them to enjoy the film, just as long as they provide some form of entertainment. Our central character here doesn’t. He’s bland. He doesn’t ever really inspire us to care whether he lives, dies or finds a way of paying his way out of the situation. He just sort of spends the film wandering around doing some half-hearted effort of calling in old debts.

And that’s about it. A cheap-looking film with bland characters who you won’t really care about and a plot that’s been done to death. Yes, the film has Mads Mikklesen in an early role, but he doesn’t do enough to elevate it to anything other than very ordinary.

However, this film has seemed to have spawned a couple of sequels meaning many must have seen something in it that I didn’t. I guess if you can put up with the subtitles and don’t mind the rawest of raw films then you may get something out of it.
