I know this movie is supposed to be about the aftermath and not the attack per se. But the part that is makes the attack feel like it took 5 minutes even though it lasted way over an hour. Sad to see that the attack is depicted as a necessary to make the rest of the movie.
All the actors are norwegian but they all speak English with different success. This is a very bad move and honestly takes away so much of the film.
I love Paul Greengrass for making movies that feels real, with a documentary feeling like Bloody Sunday or United 93 but this time it just flat fails in most everything.
Only thing that actually saves from a disaster it is because some of the actors despite English etc are doing a good job.
If you wanna feel something and then that is something really powerful go watch Erik Poppes film about the attack from this spring.
