Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg:
[Speaking at a televised press conference]
Few people find power grids attractive. I certainly don't. Norwegians are pro-electricity, but against power lines. That won't work in the long run. Norway has trolls, so more power lines are needed. That's just the way it is.

We have all seen the monster movies lately, they always seem to include: zombies, vampires of werewolves. The Troll throws monster movies through a loop by inserting the mythical troll.
The acting was very much above par. Not superb but well above average. The special effects were a wonder. The trolls actually looked realistic, though we all know they are fake. The realness actually pulled you into the movie.
The movie really held tight to the myths behind trolls, such as: smelling Christians, turning to stone and exploding with sunlight.
Having it set-up in a Blair Witch type, with a first person camera angle, made the movie all the more exciting. There was just enough camera shake to make you believe that the cameraman was running, but not enough to make you sick.
All-in-all this was an excellent movie. If I could make up one complaint, it is the abruptness of the end. I assume it is left this way for a potential sequel.
