    COMICSMads Mikkelsen on the Grotesqueness, Humor and Nudity of Netflix’s ‘Polar’ [Interview]Published 2 days ago on January 21, 2019 By Fred Topel

    Spoiler warning.

    Polar is not Mads Mikkelsen’s first comic book movie. He played the villain in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, of course, but Polar is decidedly more violent than Marvel’s output. Mikkelsen plays Duncan Vizla in this comic book adaptation, a hitman who murders people in graphic ways, in a world full of hitmen who seem to try to one-up each other’s kills.

    “The comic books of Doctor Strange and Marvel films, in general, are obviously superheroes with superpowers,” Mikkelsen told Bloody-Disgusting. “What they lift from the realistic thing is the super thing. What we lift from Polar is the style, the grotesqueness of the whole thing. So that’s also a lifted film but it doesn’t have the superpowers.”

    The movie adaptation of Polar brings some of the surreal aspects of the comic down to earth, but trades them for blood and guts.

    “I think we were all very impressed with the comic book,” Mikkelsen said. “We call it a graphic novel because that’s what we call it in Europe. It was the simplicity of the black and white and red colors and then very, very comic book characters. Some of the characters were 10 times bigger physically than some of the other characters. We were wondering a lot about how we can bring that on screen without actually having somebody who’s 10 times bigger, but try to make it grotesque in that world.”

    Polar has a sense of humor too. At one point, Duncan speaks to a grade school class and demonstrates his knife technique on a child.

    “We thought it would be a great idea that we started a scene like that,” Mikkelsen said. “Instead of just sitting there chit-chatting with the kids, it would be fun to make the kid piss his pants. And this character Duncan doesn’t really notice. He’s not really good with kids. He’s not really good with people. He has a hard time reading them unless they’re killers. Those he can read. Normal people he has a hard time with.”



    In more intense moments, Mikkelsen has to take out armies of attackers barehanded, and bare-assed. A long action sequence occurs with Duncan in a state of undress, making it far more brutal on the actor than his big studio blockbusters.

    “Doctor Strange was also going on for days,” Mikkelsen said. “I had a fight with Benedict Cumberbatch that was also quite a big thing. The difference was that I could be padded on my elbows and my knees on that film. I could not on this one. I was literally not wearing any clothes meaning that I would have to fall on my elbow on a concrete wall. That’s a different ball game.”

    Polar premieres on Netflix on Friday, January 25.

    This is one of those movies where I definitely want to watch it, but it's easily forgettable. This has been on my radar for a while and I had already forgot all about it until this post.

    Have any of you watched it yet? When I fired up Netflix it only had the trailer to play. Which I skipped on purpose so I can just watch the movie without having seen anything.
