Headhunters

Rated R 100 minutes 2011

Headhunters is a near-perfect heist movie. Of course, the premise has never diverged too wildly from the pattern established in The Great Train Robbery, but it’s still tough to make a heist film this entertaining. Roger (Aksel Hennie) is a Norwegian corporate headhunter who supplements his income by lifting precious artwork from the homes of his clients, and he believes he has found the perfect score. His wife runs an art gallery, and she has learned that wealthy CEO Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) wants an appraisal on a masterpiece long believed to have been destroyed by the Nazis. But Roger has underestimated his victim, who doesn’t take kindly to the sleight of hand. There are surprises along the way and plenty of double-crosses, but you wouldn’t expect anything less from a slick, no-nonsense heist caper.
