In this hugely entertaining double-bill for ex-Swedish House Mafia members Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell Hedfors, their fellow Swede Christian Larson has delivered an action blockbuster, with great fight sequences, memorable characters - and bucketloads of irreverent humour. 

And Larson, who knows the duo now known as Axwell Ingrosso very well – having documented Swedish House Mafia's final tour in his feature-length documentary Leave the World Behind – has turned them into a winning on-screen double-act, who start out as sworn enemies. Part One, for On My Way, sees Axwell face off with Ingrosso in an underground fist-fighting ring set in a gritty, rough area of Bucharest, Romania. The pressure is on, with Mafia leaders and their burly henchmen placing bets on the fighters – and threatening to beat them to an inch of their life if they are to lose.

But there's an edgy twist, when it turns out these rapscallions have a plan of their own... And in part two for Can't Hold Us Down, we get the unexpected payback for their own scheming...

So sit back, and enjoy - great fight sequences, great photography courtesy of DoP Erik Sohlstrom, an excellent vintage Volvo that goes up in a ball of flame – and more evidence that Christian Larson is developing into a hell of a director...
