I will have to side with Slant Magazines unfavorable review of this one. While Borgman commits to its theme of not explaining itself wholeheartedly, it falls short of being a genuinely intelligent thriller and comes away looking pretentious.I will have to side with Slant Magazines unfavorable review of this one. While Borgman commits to its theme of not explaining itself wholeheartedly, it falls short of being a genuinely intelligent thriller and comes away looking pretentious. Thus it falls to critics to justify the absurd with their high brows and references to religious symbolism. In fact i have found that some reviewers interpretation far more interesting than the film itself. Which i guess makes it worth seeing if you want to appear clever other film critics. Expand

It does not offer much, just some surprises and a few memorable scenes. It seems at first like a great indie/foreign film, but then ultimately is an idea that crashes. Borgman is like a rocket that soars and immediatley bashes into a plane.

As a film it might have been fine if it had decided what it wanted to be and stuck with that. The acting and visuals are fine (and something to look at if you are a fan of ultra-modern European design). The problem is that it is made out to be serious / realistic and the action is extremely far-fetched. The two do not mix. Rather it ought to have gone with a supernatural vibe which lets the viewer go along with unrealistic action or write realistic crimes. Expand
