Jackpot certainly starts off with a bang, as the movie's protagonist is discovered surrounded by dead bodies in a sleazy strip club. He is soon hauled off to the local cop shop by detective Solør and by a process of interrogation the full story of how he got there is pieced together.

“Jackpot certainly starts off with a bang, as the movie's protagonist is discovered surrounded by dead bodies in a sleazy strip club. He is soon hauled off to the local cop shop by detective Solør and by a process of interrogation the full story of how he got there is pieced together.

The twist in the tale is that Svendsen is an unreliable narrator which helps to make the narrative less predictable than it could have been, as the characters and set-up are pretty much stereotypical: the noirish cynical cop, motivation to get a hold of a massive sum of money, and gang of random psychopaths. The humour is as black as pitch and the violence extremely graphic which makes this a film which isn't for the faint-hearted.

The cast did pretty well with the material they had but ” read more

2011 Films - Best to Worst (123 movies items)

"5/10 Crazy, violent Norwegian comedy. Every thing about it is of course just nonsense, and trash. It is sometimes funny, the production is of high quality, and there are some neat details here. Still, it's not as funny as it's supposed to be. The script is too weak. The jokes doesn't hit often enough, and while I guess you can be entertained by all the violence and blood, the script around it isn't good enough. I don't mind violence used like this, but violence itself doesn't create a good film"
