Better than expected Norwegian film with some flaws
22 November 2018 | by TheTopDawgSee all my reviews

I'm not a fan of subtitled films (the ones on my copy were very poorly translated but not rating that), but this film was an exception. For a Norwegian production, it was grand and impressive. The acting was outstanding, as were the VFX and beautiful Norwegian setting. My issue was with the writing and final cut editing; too many dragged out scenes - I mean really dragged out that the director/screenwriter should have omitted. 106 min was way too long, and with the slow pacing and dragged out scenes, the film felt like 3 hours long. The first half could have had many scenes omitted or shaved, but the last half really needed to cut down on the overly and unnecessarily dragged out elevator and top building scenes and had the pace picked up more. This film should have been no more than 75-80 mins long. That simple mistake cost this film at least 2 stars from me. Nevertheless, still a very good film, especially considering it's a Norwegian production. 7/10 from me
