The Synopsis for The Purity of Vengeance (2018) 720p

Two workmen make an alarming discovery in an older Copenhagen apartment: hidden behind a false wall are three mummified corpses, sitting around a dining table with one empty seat left. The case quickly ends up on the desk of Detective Superintendent CARL M?RCK and his assistant, ASSAD, and it is up to them to figure out, who the mummies are as well as who the fourth seat is meant for. Carl and Assad put all effort in to finding the tenant of the apartment and they end up finding clues tracing back to the notorious institution for 'wayward' girls on the island of Sprog?, where extreme neglect and medical experiments in forced sterilization are a part of everyday life. Even though the horrors of Sprog? are a closed chapter in Danish history, there are now people claiming the experiments have continued to go on up until today. Carl and Assad start a race against time to prevent new murders and attacks from happening.

The Reviews for The Purity of Vengeance (2018) 720p

A well-written, well-acted thriller that only lacks a FINAL JOLT! [+72%]Reviewed byarungeorge13Vote: 7/10

I had no clue that 'Journal 64' (or 'The Purity of Vengeance') was part of a series of films known as 'Department Q', before looking it up on IMDB (and that was after watching the movie). Well, even if it wasn't, the screenplay has added enough layers to its lead characters to make it a totally engaging fare. Assad, one of the cops in Dept. Q, is set to move to another division and his partners Carl and Rose are finding it hard to come to terms with his departure. The uncovering of a few mummified bodies behind the false wall of an apartment in Copenhagen brings an exciting case on the desk of Dept. Q once again.

On the side, in 1961, we are introduced to Nete (and how she ends up on The Girls' Home in Sprog? for 'the morally defective'), her roomie Rita, the fascist doctor Curt and his unsympathetic assistant Gitte Charles. The film provides a fair bit of an insight into the grim realities of what went down in that island facility, and it's definitely not for the faint-hearted. Does the past have a connection with the goings-on of the present? Watch the film to find out!

Adapted from the novel by Jussi Adler-Olsen, the screenplay packs enough thrills and punches to keep the viewer on their toes for the most part. A conspiracy is unraveled slowly; we realize the subplots aren't mere subplots. Every character shown on screen has at least one or more relevant scenes. That clearly indicates the screenplay's strength. With a cast that's already popular among Danish viewers, director Christoffer Boe had his job cut out to an extent. He has retained some of the gruesome details of Sprog? to reinstate how big of a terror-show it once used to be.

Incorporating elements from a past era into a film can sometimes come across as too dramatic and struggling to convey the right notion. Director Boe doesn't have any of it. The daunting flashback sequences at the facility are as thrilling as the duo (and their female colleague) trying to crack their case several years later. The crafting is excellent, the thrills very carefully placed. The plot, however, gets predictable beyond a point. The supposed twist in the tale isn't exactly what one would term 'remarkable', but in a thriller universe, I believe it fits.

The climax is a bit of a stretch too, with the extended scenes catering more to fans of the franchise than to the plot. If that doesn't bother you, you have a really good thriller in your hands. The camaraderie between the leads is also one of the reasons this film works so well. It has well-rounded protagonists (one of them fundamentally flawed, and for the right cinematic reasons!), above-par performances, detailed plotting, and just the right amount of thrills and action set-pieces that can make your weekend a wee bit more interesting!

What I immediately need to do is seek out the older counterparts to this movie and binge-watch them.

To easy figure outReviewed byhynekkimVote: 4/10

No surprises and way to easy to figure out. Maybe the book is the same, havent read it, but to me the plot was way too simple

A medium movieReviewed byeskovVote: 5/10

An okay movie - but a very bad screenplay adaptation from the book. So many nuances and important point is lost :-(
