    Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) seems to have it all, a top corporate headhunter with a beautiful wife, and all the lavish trappings of a successful life. Cocky and supremely arrogant, reputation and taking risks is everything to Brown. Brown also leads a double life, which is possibly even more lucrative. He meets his match in Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Walda). Greve is cockier still, wealthier, handsome, taller (Brown is ‘only’ 5ft 6″) and probably even more loathsome. Brown tries to persuade Greve to join his company, but Greve refuses to play his game and things start to unravel. Clearly ruffled, Browns perfect existence quickly deteriorates as Greve engages him in a deadly game of cat and mouse. Brown becomes a shell of a man through a series of terrifying events, some so humiliating that you might actually sympathise with his *************. With one of the best cinematic ‘Why is this **** happening to me?’ faces of recent times, the excellent Hennie is completely believable whether smarmy or ridiculously out of his depth. Director Tyldum has created a stylish and entertaining thriller, full of darkly comic tension. ‘Headhunters’ does require a generous amount of suspension of disbelief, but the film’s momentum was just too quick by the end and much was glossed over too swiftly.

    OMG! What a great movie, I not really sure why the Critic\'s scores are so low but this is a must see action drama, very smart and well played out... I am glad I took the risk, I just might pay to go see it again and I don\'t do repeats.

    This movie is probably the best movie I have seen in years. Put Tarantino, Stone and the Cohen Brothers together and you get \"Headhunters\". There are some scenes where I caught myself saying \"you have got to be kidding\" or \"I hope the other people in the audience are not going to have a heart attack\". I just had to laugh because there were so many crazy scenes that you have to ask \"who thinks up this stuff\". It was awesome.
