Movies starring Alexander Skarsgard

Sort by:
Aftermath, The

Although it’s being marketed as a love story, The Aftermath is more about grief and recovery than romance. In fact, the film’s illicit relationship is a cold, passionless affair that generates as much heat as a dying ember in a snowstorm. ...

Battleship

Let me start this review off on a positive note. Battleship is in 2-D, not 3-D, so there are no issues with motion blur, low light levels, and general eye discomfort. There are some nice establishing shots of Hawaii; I might want to go there if I w...

Disconnect

Disconnect, Henry Alex Rubin's meditation on how we communicate in the age of electronics and social media, is a deeply flawed motion picture containing moments of brilliance that illustrate its strong thematic content. A triptych of tales connecte...

Giver, The

Since Jeff Bridges optioned the rights to Lois Lowry's The Giver shortly after its 1993 publication, the tale has been on a slow track to production. Bridges, however, didn't give up and, although his original choice for the title character passed ...

Somewhere, buried within the innards of writer/director Kim Nguyen’s The Hummingbird Project, is the skeleton of a compelling techno-thriller. Unfortunately, Nguyen overreaches in attempting to add an element of meaning to what works best a...

Legend of Tarzan, The

In 2016, one wonders whether there’s a place in cinema for the 104-year old Tarzan. To make the character more relevant to a modern audience, screenwriters Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer, along with director David Yates (who helmed the final four ...

Long Shot

When I see a romantic comedy, I’m not expecting Ozu or Bergman or Truffaut or Scorsese. All I want – and I think it’s a perfectly reasonable desire considering the genre – is to fall in love with the characters as they fall in love wit...

Melancholia

No one could ever accuse Lars von Trier of being uninteresting. Even his most maddening, inaccessible films are compulsively watchable, if only to see what will happen next. Melancholia represents von Trier at his best and worst. Visually and thema...

Straw Dogs

Sam Peckinpah's 1971 adaptation of Gordon Williams' novel elicited more controversy than the uncompromising director expected, in large part because of the unflinching and somewhat ambiguous depiction of a double rape. In addition to the unexpurgat...
