IN ORDER OF DISAPPEARANCE REVIEWED
“In Order of Disappearance” is a darkly funny and violent look at Mr. Plow. Well, it’s the European take on Mr. Plow. He’s angry that his son was killed and it was covered up as an overdose. Now, the father of the year decides to kill everyone directly involved in his son’s death. As each Eurotrash goon is killed, a fun little epitaph pops up onscreen. While this might have been charming once, it carries on throughout the duration of the film. From there, more people die.
The film wants to litter this Northern European world with eccentric characters and Serbian drug thugs that know history. It’s just that it doesn’t matter. The Dad Revenge Porn genre usually hinges on its ability to make us root for the aging lead actor. Whether it’s Bronson or Neeson, we want to see the old guys stomp the bad guys to death. If I wanted personality quirks and a fascinating look at the modern Europe, I’d just watch something else. Just kidding. I’m not watching anything else unless it has a Death Star or Emma Stone in it. This movie has neither.
