Unsettling
4 January 2019 | by annahustlerSee all my reviews

Had no idea what the movie would be about so my expectations were none, but I was pleasantly surprised!

The love story falls a bit flat, and so does some of the acting (tragically mainly by the main characters), but for me the movie wasn't about the love story, but about how Sweden would handle a disaster. I'm not pro military, so I was surprised of how invested I was in the plot, and how uneasy and scared I felt watching this. I also think it really captures that realistic essence and atmosphere which I think Hollywood movies almost always lack. Since I don't know much about the military though, I can't speak for how much was ACTUALLY realistic in actions etc.

The soundtrack was not memorable in melody, but enhanced the movie experience a lot! It reminded me of the Interstellar soundtrack that I think is amazing.

The CGI is amazing. I never questioned it and didn't even reflect on it until I read the reviews here.

In short: great film that really targets that unsettling-nerve.
