I’m a big fan of Mads Mikkelsen and still hold the belief that his performance of Dr. Hannibal Lector still outstrips that of Antony Hopkins. Mikkselsen is a performer who never disappoints and his wide range of projects is inspiring. Now this superstar Danish thespian is taking on one hell of a crazy ride in Polar.
Check out the INSANE trailer below:
Here’s the synopsis:
The world’s top assassin, Duncan Vizla, aka The Black Kaiser (Mads Mikkelsen), is settling into retirement when his former employer marks him as a liability to the firm. Against his will, he finds himself back in the game going head to head with an army of younger, faster, ruthless killers who will stop at nothing to have him silenced.
This super slick and stylized action thriller goes from 0-100 in just over two minutes and it is one hell of crazy ride. Not only is Mikkelsen possessed of a dangerous and chilling demeanor, but the film’s action sequence are supercharged to the hilt and hit like something that’s a combination of Oldboy and John Wick.
In addition to its wild premise and outlandish camera work, Polar will also pack a score by noted electronic music producer and DJ Deadmau5 and his track ‘Drama Free’ accompanies the trailer.
The trailer really rocked me to my core and I’m definitely amped for what comes next. Check out my full reaction below:
Polar is one film you’re definitely going to want to check out when it arrives on Netflix on January 25.
