Format:DVD
This film starts as it means to go on. The pace is relentless, leaving you struggling to keep up with the subtitles in some parts!
It is filmed with what appears to be a green/ yellow filter, meaning the mood of the film leaves you un-nerved, as though something isn't quite right.. and of course.. it isn't!
|There are no over dramatic sound effects or sound tracks playing in the back ground either, the suspense being provoked purley by the visuals, which also left me feeling spooked. If something dramatic happened, THAT'S when the sound effect kicked in, adding to the suspense of the film!

I don't want to give the story away, but i still didn't know what was going on until the last 15 minutes of the film!!

In a nutshell, beautifully shot, excellent acting, deep and intense storyline, spook, twisted and eery... without the campness of a horror film!!

i loved it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooking up a Storm 13 July 2007
Format:DVD
This is a brilliant movie. It has been called the 'Swedish Matrix' which is utter bollocks. The person who said that probably just read the back cover or wasn't paying attention. It does look and feel very much like a bladerunner or a matrix, but that's more due to tone, cinematography and a cool green filter applied liberally during post production.

The film is shot beautifully, almost every scene a work of art in itself. It could be sci-fi, it could be fantasy or it could be a psychological thriller and herein lies the secret of the film.

When it comes to subject matter, sci-fi, fantasy and psyche thrillers have one thing in common; the good ones revolve around the people in them. They probe in turn, what it is that creates identity and what pulls identity apart.

This film leaves you guessing and some might see this as a flaw, but it offers so much to think about that the ending just adds another layer of possibility.

There is, in a sense, closure, but not the Hollywood type a lot of people are used to.

It's complex, has many twists and turns and gets you when you are not expecting.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Box Of Secrets? 27 Oct 2009
Format:DVD
If you need to be spoonfed throughout a movie in order to enjoy it then Storm is definitely not for your enjoyment. If you like to have your mind toyed with and to some extent your intellect challenged then this Swedish flick is an absolute must-see. The uber cool Eric Ericson is perfectly cast as DD, a man travelling through time trying to thread all the pieces together before his life plummets any further into the dark abyss that's engulfing him. Eva Rose is equally as good as the hard hitting, hopscotching heroin trying to unlock the secrets in DD's mind before a pack of sociopathic henchmen kill her. If she dies the secrets will be lost forever and DD will return to his fantasy world... or will he? A mysterious box contains all the answers which DD seems unable to open, so we follow him on his journey towards understanding/redemption and watch the nightmare unravel with a little humour along the way.

The first time I watched this flick I was enthralled but instantly knew that I had missed some vital information. All the pieces to the puzzle didn't quite fit mainly because I was focusing on DD's character unfolding and the utterly superb performance from Eric Ericson. The second viewing I concentrated more on the things surrounding DD and the individuals that cross his path throughout his journey and then I found clarity. A brilliant fable with strong likeable characters that has been superbly shot with some impressive special effects. Storm is arguably the best Swedish flick of the Noughties, it's a mind-bending masterpiece - are you ready to play the game?

1.0 out of 5 stars Some decent acting in an incredibly poor film 10 Aug 2010
By Craig
Format:DVD
Based on some of the previous reviews, I bought this film thinking it sounded pretty good. However, when I got the DVD, and I saw the cover, and the small blurb from some unknown reviewer saying "Dynamite entertainment!", alarm bells were already ringing, because such reviews from unknown publications always make me suspicious.

First of all, the good things. The acting from Eric Ericson is good. A few of the supporting acts were well done (the fact their characters were rubbish isn't their fault). That's about all the praise I can give this film, because everything else was, frankly, rubbish.

It starts off well enough, but quickly loses its way, because it can't seem to make up its mind as to what sort of film it is. There are entire sequences that seem completely random, almost as if someone sat down and said, "Let's do that, that'll look pretty cool." While avoiding conventions is not always a bad thing, the problem is that the film sets expectations and the proceeds to ignore them: one minute you're thinking you're watching a science fiction film, the next you think it may become a horror, then you're wondering if you're watching a fantasy, a psychological thriller ... it really was all over the place.

There are deep problems with the central character, too, namely that the viewer cannot sympathise with him. The more of the film you watch, the more you hate him, which made it extremely difficult to even care what happened to him. The majority of the other central characters, too, are completely random and meaningless. We just don't care about them, so you spend the entire time watching a sequence of seemingly random events without connecting with anyone.
