MORTAL is a fantasy adventure origin story about a young man, Eric, who discovers he has God-like powers based on ancient Norwegian mythology. While hiding in the wilderness of western Norway, Eric accidentally kills a teenager in an inexplicable way and is subsequently arrested. Before being interrogated, he meets Christine, a young psychologist trying to figure out what really happened. She believes Eric and feels sympathy with him. Soon the American embassy shows up wanting Eric extradited, but he manages to flee with Christine. On the run, with both Norwegian and American authorities after him, Eric finally discovers who, or what, he really is. Written by https://teaser-trailer.com

User Reviews

Speechless. probably the best film ive watched All year.
8 September 2020 | by stgkingSee all my reviews

Ive been left with goose bumps after watching this. I registered just to review this, and thats saying something.

If historical mythology is up your street, particularly aimed at Vikings, and Old Norse, then you will enjoy this. Its a movie about discovery, without spoiling it too much.

Its a slow burn, but anticipation grows and your left with arguably the best film I've watched in recent years. Id even argue its better than most mainstream films. It has a hint of a "Bmovie" about it, but the special effects used, look believable and outstanding. It never felt over done or overly Cgi.

The acting was decent. The dialogue and script for Priyanka Bose's part as Hathaway felt hollywoody. I REALLY hope theres a sequal coming, and wasnt a one off. The entire film was staged perfectly for a sequal, and there's so much more that could be told.
