For this raw drama in which crime and sport play an important role, the director was inspired by Long East End gangster films. Shots from a music video are juxtaposed with panoramic images of skyscrapers and desolate urban landscapes. The colours are pale, the cutting rapid and the actors largely inexperienced which helps emphasise the authenticity and cruelty of the story.Igor, champion marksman, returns broken from the war between Bosnia and Croatia. His younger brother Sasa, also a competition shot, still regards him as a hero, while Igor is in fact a pathetic junkie. Igor associates shooting with war and so he doesn't touch another rifle. To earn his living, he pawns off his decorations and gets involved in drug trafficking. Then he sells their dead parents' shooting range to the ruthless criminal Runda. When Sasa sees Runda and his bodyguards beat up and humiliate Igor, that is the limit. He takes the law into his own hands.Golubovic: 'Absolute Hundred is a marksman's term for top marks in the final round. Ten bullets in the bullseye. In this film it stands for absolute victory in sport and absolute justice in a world where that justice seems to have disappeared.'
