Customer Review

on 6 March 2012
I was drawn to this film initially by the lead actor, Baltasar Kormákur, who in my opinion is a truly great director and actor (check out Jar City or Reykjavik 101). I found myself completely absorbed in the action - couldn't take my eyes off the screen. There are some terrific, really natural performances from all the lead cast.The film is set in equal parts in its native Iceland, on board a cargo ship, and in Rotterdam. There is just enough comedy to keep it on the light side without spoiling the undoubted drama. Don't be put off by the English subtitles - this will give you the perfect excuse to watch it again! It has been made into a Hollywood blockbuster, Contraband, but I would strongly advise watching the unadulterated undiluted original, Rekjavik Rotterdam.
