Kinnaman was very good in 'The Killing', part of a first-rate cast that included Mireille Enos. It's hard to imagine him being a native Swede and playing that part. He just disappeared into a very complex role. I don't think his ability as an actor is really in question, especially for a role like this one.
Wabo, Cabo, SB1.....how is the audio? Might blind buy
Got the remake and original in this weekend. The audio was very good. LFE in the warehouse attack scene, and a couple other spots after, was a lot of fun.
As for the movies, I am really glad I did these on back to back nights. The remake starts up good enough and I agree with the favorable reviews and nit picks already mentioned. Then, seeing the original on the next night was an interesting contrast. The characters, and cast, were so memorable on the original. Dick Jones, The "Old Man", Bob Morton, Boddicker etc. Even the lesser thugs had their moments and I had forgotten the " I LIKE IT!" line.
Was fun comparing the two movies made 30 years apart. I was reminded in the extras, the 1987 version won an Oscar for sound. Back then, I'm sure, it was groundbreaking but is still shocking to me how far audio has come in movies.
