Enforcement never figured itself to be a timely film.
With protests and riots occurring worldwide, the men in blue place themselves in danger due to the growing distrust and hatred by the public.
In this film, two police officers were trapped in the projects, when they were suddenly ambushed by young men after a verdict of a trial. The angry mob seeks justice vented on the two police officers on patrol. As the civil unrests spread in the neighborhood, the cops found themselves trapped in the maze of buildings and fighting for their own lives.
The Danish film stars Jacob Lohmann (Norskov, Follow the Money), and Simon Sears (Shadow and Bone, Ride Upon the Storm). Frederik Louis Hviid (Follow the Money, Halvmand) and Anders Ølholm (Letters for Amina, Ækte vare) wrote and directed the film.

“We don’t consider Enforcement to be a political film, but simply about people. Our aim is neither to defend nor criticize, but merely to try and understand the ‘why’ behind people’s actions and worldviews,” stated the directors. “The angry, disenfranchised young men from the housing projects, who feel demonized and misunderstood, as well as the overworked and underpaid police officers for whom the same holds true.”
They credited their gritty visual storytelling from the influences of complex antiheroes in films from the 70s and 80s with directors such as William Friedkin, Sydney Lumet, and Walter Hill.
“We live in a dark time. Humanity needs hope. And ultimately that is what Enforcement is to us, a story of hope,” concluded the directors.
