IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE

The latest entry in the genre of oldster action is In Order of Disappearance, with Stellan Skarsgård playing a grieving immigrant father out for revenge after his son unwittingly loses his life to drug dealers. While the movie has shades of Taken and of the superb Remember, stylistically it’s in the mode of a Tarantino movie—arranged in chapters named after the departed; with an eccentric villain bossing around colorful goons who crack wise or speak indirectly. However, maybe because something is lost in translation, the dialogue does not live up to Tarantino. And the last section is a mess in a good and bad way: good, because the bodies pile up; bad, because the action is difficult to track visually, unless you like the Michael Bay cut-cut-cut aesthetic. Directed by Hans Peter Moland.

In Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, English, Serbian, & German
