This evening I've had the good luck to watch Mr. Treholt and his Ninjatroppen doing stuff. Considering the title (and the reviews here on IMDb) and thus expecting nothing, I've had one of the most entertaining movie experiences since watching Big Lebowski. It took about ten seconds for a permanent grin to invade my face and settle there for the next (nearly) one and a half hour. But it's difficult to explain why this movie is so much fun: the special effects look kind of cheap (think Godzilla), the story is weird. On the other hand: You'll get cheap but fitting SFX done the norwegian way and a really weird story based on some even more weird historical events.
