Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at a new film destined to become a cult action classic! It’s called “Sisu” and it follows the exploits of a former soldier-turned gold miner in the wilds of Finland during 1944. Having lost his family and turned his back on the war he’s content to find his fortune in gold, which he does after several failed attempts. On his way back to the city, he is besieged by the fleeing Nazi army who have adapted a scorched-earth police of violence and destruction. Now they want our miner’s gold. The miner, named Aatami (Jorma Tommila), turns out to be a former Finnish commander and an ultimate badass, a point the Nazi’s discover when they try to take his gold as well as his life. For the next ninety minutes it’s a cat and mouse game between Aatami and the Nazis, only in this hunt it’s Aatami playing the role of the cat!
