I had the opportunity to sit down and watch the 2021 Norwegian movie "I Onde Dager" (aka "The Trip"), and needed no persuasion to do so. Why? Well, solely because it was a Norwegian movie that I hadn't already seen. And no, I hadn't heard about the movie prior to sitting down for watching it, so I wasn't really sure what I was in for here.
I have to say that writers Tommy Wirkola, Nick Ball and John Niven definitely managed to churn out a storyline that proved to be entertaining. And it was a storyline that combined elements from various genres of movies, from dark comedy, horror/thriller and action in a very fulfilling manner. So thumbs up to the writers for their collaborative achievement here.
There was a good flow and pacing to the story, which meant that there weren't really any dull moments throughout the course of the entire movie. Director Tommy Wirkola definitely had a knack for setting up the scenes and piling gradually on to the storyline.
The cast ensemble for "I Onde Dager" was great. I was only familiar with Noomi Rapace here, but they had an abundance of good performers in the movie. I will also say that Aksel Hennie, Atle Antonsen, Christian Rubeck and André Eriksen put on great performances and added a lot to the movie.
I was genuinely entertained by what director Tommy Wirkola delivered with "I Onde Dager", and this is certainly a movie that I can warmly recommend you sit down to watch.
My rating of "I Onde Dager" lands on a well-deserved seven out of ten stars.
