Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
This Norwegian thriller has a winning cutthroat perversity.Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 05.02.2012
Clearly, there are streaks of farce in all this, as well as serious cracks in logic, and those who like their black comedy done to a crisp will happily feast on what Tyldum dishes up.Anthony Lane, New Yorker, 05.10.2012
When we get the remake in a year or two, I hope it retains the edge and compact energy of director Morten Tyldum's movie.Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, 05.09.2012
"Headhunters" is a well-oiled, nasty machine.Walter V. Addiego, San Francisco Chronicle, 05.03.2012
