Not Mads' voice on this version, go and buy the German DVD instead, it had subtitles too!
on 17 February 2015
Suspend your cynicism, this is a great movie. It could have been an average movie, but thankfully someone had the good sense to cast Mads Mikkelsen in the lead so now it's great.
What's not so great is the block-headed decision to re-dub his voice with a "real German" as apparently his accent wasn't quite up to muster. Forget the fact that 90% of people will be watching this movie because they are Mads fans or that he won a Palme D'or for best actor, it's apparently far more important that his character pronounces words in the correct phonetically manner.
So if you're here because you want to see another great Mads Movie, go to the german amazon and buy the german version of the dvd. It has an extra audiotrack (the original dub of Mads voice) which you can easily switch over to, and English subtitles to boot. And everyone is happy.
