Star Performance

Gerard Butler, Gary Oldman, Toby Stephens and Michael Nyqvist had done their roles perfectly. This is one of the final films of Michael Nyqvist. The rest of the stars had played their part well.


The director has designed the screenplay well and had given the edge – seat moments to the viewers. Although some scenes seem to be illogical, the thrill didn’t decrease. The main drawback in the film is too many subplots. The film also has come with a difference in certain things that don’t match the contemporary reality. Instead of a male President, the film has a woman as the US President. Besides this, they had showcased that the Russians have a good skill in English. As usual, the film shows that the Americans excel in patriotism than the others.

What’s There?

  • The screenplay is neat
  • Stars had performed well

What’s Not There?

  • Too many subplots spoiled the movie-watching mood
  • Illogical scenes irk the audiences


The film mainly projects that the Americans are the biggest patriots. Although it has a lot of flaws, with the interesting scenes, the director has made the audiences to have a complete watch. Hunter Killer … Not more than once!
