Great scenery but that was it
23 August 2017 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film tells the story of a geologist, who goes to the wilderness in Norway to hunt for craters. He finds himself hopelessly lost in the wilderness, and while looking for a way back, he even manages to lose his compass as well.

Honestly, the above story line was all I managed to catch out of 107 minutes of screen time. All I see is a group of men walking around in really beautiful tundra. However, there is a limit of how many times I can watch people walking up a hill then down a hill, cross a stream then cross another stream. The story goes nowhere, and even if it did, it is painfully slow. The guy takes ten minutes to cross a stream and look at his compass, then another three minutes to try to retrieve his compass, then spends two minutes walking to and fro to indicate that he is lost. All could have been shown within one minute. I regret having watched this film, as there is only great scenery and nothing else.
