Thin, intense and yet somehow cool, Kinnaman is on his way to stardom, and it's easy to see how these movies gave him lift off. This is a tough, crackling crime story, well-executed and tense throughout.

Because JW isn't the strutting, duplicitous peacock he was in the first movie, the role isn't as rewarding this time out.

A deep pool of underworld characters and a focus on multicultural tensions in Stockholm lend crime drama some added interest in "Easy Money: Hard to Kill" ...

The picture isn't radically inventive; [but] it's taut and vivid. The grimy window it opens onto a desperate, dangerous lifestyle makes viewers feel like accomplices.

Given the substance that was already inherent in the material, it seems wasteful for the filmmakers to discard it for the sake of one more guns-cocked standoff.

New York Post

Najafi stages action scenes with an intense, queasy beauty and elevates what is in its outlines a routine crime drama to near-operatic proportions ...

[S]uffers by comparison [to the original]... How Kinnaman plays JW's devastation, as seething, mounting rage, is the best thing about [it].

This is the second in a series of three and the least interesting of them. As the films go on, you start simply waiting for everyone to be killed. Jorge was… More
