Pusher 2: With Blood on My Hands
Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn
PUSHER II tells the story of Tonny (Mads Mikkelsen), a crook from the Copenhagen underworld whose previous run-in with a baseball bat has left his mind addled and unreliable. Having just been released from prison, Tonny tries to bring order to his life and gain the respect of his father, the Duke, a notorious gangster who appears to have nothing but contempt for his son. Tonny soon learns that nothing in this new life comes easy. Trying to repay a debt held over from prison, he makes misstep after misstep, running further afoul of the Duke. On top of it all, Tonny must contribute to the upbringing of a baby boy which may or may not be his own. Battling the scorn of all around him as well as his own drug-fuelled delirium, Tonny must forge a path toward some form of redemption, or perish in the attempt.
Tonny (Mads Mikkelsen) is released from prison - again. This time he has his mind set on changing his broken down life, but that is easier said than done.
Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Leif Sylvester, Anne Sørensen
Not your typical horror flick, this is real Horror
Holy shit, this is amazing. Great job Shudder, you've exposed me to another classic! Highly highly recommend. I really like the use of grain in the film and love the authentic style of filmmaking. It feels real. Everything feels real. The characters are great and the acting is better. Just go watch it. I agree that this one is better than the first one.
First movie was okay. Mass
Better than the first film. Utterly Grueling.
Mads is a great actor, I’ve seen all his stuff and his latest, Arctic is a really good film as most of films have been. In this trilogy, it’s nice to see his growth as an actor and how versatile he’s become. I think two of his best films are The Hunt & The Salvation. Two very different films in which he shows his superb acting skills.
