| Misses the mark (so to speak)
Steen is a journalist, who in a television show admits that it may be necessary to use force when keeping Denmark a nuclear-free zone (back in 1976, a very hot topic). Okking misinterprets his message and starts shooting people to prove his point, wasting dogs, old ladies and celebrities. Sadly, the film´s message about environmental issues is so heavyhanded, and leading actor Steen´s performance so poor, that the film fails, surviving only on Okking´s strong performance as the determined killer. Some effective shocks on the way, but the police investigation doesn´t add to the excitement. Best bit has Okking shooting then national soccer player Allan Simonsen.
