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.

An American government person would not be giving a kill order to a Swedish sniper on sovereign Swedish soil. Ridiculous. See more »

User Reviews

Well worth watching
3 February 2021 | by steveamurraySee all my reviews

Many times I'll start watching a movie that I'm not sure of and I'll let it go after a while. Maybe I'll finish it another time, maybe not. This movie held my full attention all the way. It's an interesting take on the story, the young actors are extremely good, and the cinematography was excellent. I think if you see a bad review it's because that person was expecting something else, not because of the merits of this flick. I'm very impressed with it and I hope to see more. I'd recommend it to anyone I know.
