Movie reviews for Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

2009-06-13  Niels Risgaard Hansen: 6 out of 10
I'm very much in agreement with Peter on this review.
I like the movie as a whole, but you have to be in the mood, and not expect too much. The flash-backs are nicely cut and gives a good twist to the plot.
I didn't really fell anything for the characters, but I'm guessing that is the point.
If you are a movie-lover, this might be something for your taste.


2008-12-09  Peter Buchardt: 6 out of 10
One of those movies where everything goes wrong for everybody. It is a good movie, but you really have to be in the mood for it. It has great way of jumping in time. So you'll see parts of the same period two times, each every piece overlapping the next. but you'll see ft from different perspectives. And the end of cause ties it all together.

6 of 10 actually might be a bit harsh, cause it is good, but maybe not my favorite type of movie. For instance you have no sympathy with any of the characters or their actions.

Bad guys, don't rob anything...
