    Pusher II follows the same basic premise as the original Pusher of watching a character's life spiral out of control, with Mads Mikkelsen (which most people will know as Le Chiffre in Casino Royale) reprising his role as dumb cluck Tonny in Pusher 1. We're years later now, and Tonny has just come out of a short stay in prison (likely not his first) to find the world one in which he is not welcome. No one trusts him to do a good job. His father rejects him in favor of another two-bit crook. And a woman claims her baby is his. What's incredibly sad about Pusher II is that Tonny just isn't smart enough to process all this. He can only react on instinct, acting on the moment but not able to look ahead to the consequences. It's heartbreaking to see him try to impress a father that doesn't love him, or attempt to be a father to his nameless child. The film is full of touching impotence. Mikkelsen is the only actual actor in the piece, the rest of the ranks filled with people basically playing a version of themselves, people who've known the lifestyles portrayed, so the sense of vérité of the first film is retained. 5 years 11 months ago

    Probably the strongest of the Pusher trilogy. Mads Mikkelsen has quickly become one of my favorite actors.
