In Refn's skilled street-realist hands, the child becomes a potent, wailing metaphor for Tonny's own dilemma of rudderless need.

Lessons of Darkness

Doesn't so much carve out new ground as merely provide jolt after electric jolt.

There's virtually no limit to how far Mikkelsen's sorry, sad character will go when he's pushed, and the story ends on a very chilling note.

Noel Murray
AV Club

Works best when it's dwelling on the disconnect between Mikkelsen's lurid imagination and his disappointing reality.

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

An ugly urban story not meant for the genteel.

Reeling Reviews

...in many ways resembles 2005's Cannes winner L'Enfant another film about a posturing street thug who finds his humanity from the child he does not want.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Mikkelsen anchors the film with a tremendous presence that sells even the most soap-operatic moments with a lacerating clenched-teeth honesty.

Louis Proyect

Second in a trilogy about Copenhagen drug dealers. Sardonic comedy in the "Goodfellas" vein.

Harvey S. Karten

Part of a trilogy about Copenhagen criminals, this one features a terrific performance by a Vin-Diesel lookalike who runs rings around the American actor in ability.
