Sisu is a Finnish film, not from Quentin Tarantino but certainly cut from the same variety of gruesome cloth. The film is visceral and over the top, celebrating slaughter, in a variety of horrifically novel, ways.
I personally found the whole affair gratuitous, to be honest. What dwelt at the back of my mind and I feel should be remembered, is war is not a joke or a carnival.
I grew up surrounded by people who lived and in some cases, served during WWII. The few tales they told were sad, often tragic and spoke of people trapped into a reality, not of their making or their wanting.
On the upside, Sisu is well paced, exposition driven and has lots of variety in its action. Acting is solid but exposition, is really this flicks, true driver. On a certain level too, this film, recalls spaghetti Westerns, with a WWII, make over.
In summary, if you like splatter style films, you’ll probably like this, Just keep in mind, real people lived and died in WWII, on both sides. War is not a game, its not an entertainment.
_Sisu_ is an hour and a half slaughter fest loaded with despicable characters that you will actually enjoy seeing being ripped to pieces.
It is a film that endorses its simplicity a bit too heavily, but is an otherwise immensely entertaining piece of popcorn entertainment that will satisfy action junkies.

They want to steal mi gold! But I’m an inglorious (and indestructible) Sisu from Finland!
There aren’t many directors that I monitor closely, waiting and hoping for their next film to come out as soon as possible, but Jalmari Helander is one guy I keep track off. His long-feature debut “Rare Exports” was one of the most uniquely original and pleasantly deranged horror tales of the new century, and even his somewhat commercialized breakthrough “Big Game” (starring Samuel L. Jackson as the US President crashing with Air Force One in the Finnish woods) was a lot better and more entertaining than you’d think as well.
It took Helander nearly 8 years to return with a new film. At the Brussels’ International Film Festival, where “Sisu” premiered and Helander was a guest of honor, he explained that he spent several years working on a personal dream project of his, but unfortunately it got cancelled entirely due to Covid. Out of pure frustration, or so he says, Helander wrote the script for “Sisu” in barely a couple of weeks. Well, if this near-brilliant explosion of action and sheer adrenalin is what he comes up with in a few weeks, then I sincerely hope he’ll still get the chance to finish his other project.
What a film! You know those movies where all the great highlights and action-packed moments already feature in the trailer? “Sisu” has a terrific trailer too, but there are still a few hundreds of other highlights left to discover in the film. In fact, this film is a one-and-a-half-hour trailer full of awesome moments. The comparisons I’ve read between “Sisu” and Quentin Tarantino’s “Inglourious Bastards” are accurate. The extreme violence and narrative structure are identical, and both films feature lots and lots of Nazis getting killed. Everybody just loves watching Nazis getting butchered in the utmost brutal and sadistic ways, is it not?
Aatami Korpi is a lone hermit digging for gold in the most northern region of Finland during the last months of WWII. When he hits the jackpot, he loads up his bag with pure gold and hopes to keep a low profile while heading back to civilization. When a platoon of Nazis finds out what he’s carrying, though, they obviously want to steal it. But Korpi is not just a weak and defenseless recluse, or what did you expect? He’s a force so determined and indestructible that only an obscure and local Finnish term for him exists.
Evidently (and also similar to “Inglourious Bastards”), “Sisu” requires quite some suspension of disbelief from the audience. This man has the fighting and survival skills of John Rambo, but in combination with the indestructability of a T-1000 Terminator! Whether shot at with heavy artillery or a rope, he cannot die. He remains under water for a ridiculously long time and walks away from plane crashes totally unharmed. Is it plausible? Nope. Is it entertaining? You bet! Especially when watching in a chock-full festival theater with a thousand of outrageous horror fanatics shouting at a screen. Must-see!
Ultimately disappointing given the trailer
It’s not a bad film. It’s just as good as it needs to be to warrant all the great reviews. It’s a blessed relief to see a film that doesn’t feature Americans and their cancerous cultural bankruptcy and the bleak Finnish setting is a nice change but somehow it’s neither funny enough or serious enough. The violence is cartoonish and a lot of fun but the bullet proof indestructibility actually becomes a bit tiresome. Without jeopardy it’s hard to care. Blowing up Nazis can never be a bad thing and there are some good set pieces but unfortunately it never quite comes together. Nice try and at least it not another loathsome conveyer belt Hollywood vomit fest.
