Depressing, slow and boring.

You know.. what the hell happened here??vredals last three movies are "Trolljegeren", "The autopsy of Jane Doe" and "Scary stories to tell in the dark". Three prette awesome movies. And then this? What!

It starts off depressing, and it keeps on being depressing, dark, slow and just a big downer all the way to the end.

The leads, Iben Akerlie and Nat Wolff have no chemistry, or very little at least. We don't get to know them at all. Nat Wolff is sulking and acting afraid. We get about a billion close ups of his face. He is also totally charmless, I'm sorry to say.

Overall the acting is ok tho. And it is kinda cool to see this kind of movie in norwegian. A lot of the dialogue is in norwegian.

The action is tolerable, if you can call it action? The movie looks pretty good. Nice nature. Probably the best thing about it. It's beautiful here in Norway.It's not exactly a bad movie, it is just slow, very uninteresting, and well, pointless.And again, Nat Wolff.. boy. He is so boring, and plays a character I don't care about at all.

And please get actual americans to play americans.

Too slow and some sloppy editing/cutting

This movie had potential. However the acting doesn't give credit to the story. The female lead is not convincing. She talks like a theatre actor. Staccato.And, those small mistakes througout the film; They stand talking in front of her car, the sky is relatively clear and the ground is dry. Then seconds later they take off in the car, the clouds are low and the ground is wet after rain. A couple of these mistakes, at least. I guess they didn't have the time or money to do it properly, but it's annoying.

Modern Day Turkey?

This movie was so bad that I laughed out loud several times. The acting is horrible, plot is abysmal and the dialogue terrible.

+1 for special affects and some cool angles.

It was ok

Nothing very spectacular about this film. Had a few good scenes here and there, but mostly dragged. I wouldn't say it was terrible, I wouldn't say it was great. Just ok. I guess if you can't find anything to watch, give it a shot.

highly supernatural, no youre warned...

From the dark side of the moon, to odd'a( yes believe it or not its called odda, how odd is that!!!) or some other highenergy industrial site in the steep and fossfaldy norwegian vestlands fiord, where an american man tries to find his ancesteries or ''finne attende til ?ttesoga'', as they would say in ''new''-norwegian, or as they said in the 19th century, the peasant language, that kvithers from the locals epyglothies in this film.

the main character that at first sight seems to be boiling over, hi on testeronic hyperkeratinosis(hairgrowth), with legs like a boiled aspargeus, smelling ditto as a meal of ''pinnakj?t''(treemeat), and behaves like an aspergillicalistic high functional and high energetic asperger spectre syndromian, ravishing and turning upside down on the beautiful norwegian lanscape and society, killing with a touch of the thumb, while all the children say,''we dont need another hero''- in the thunderdome....

well its supposed to be scripted upon the faith of norr?n mythology, and if my little squeels havent tipped you of yet who this americans ancestors are then try to eat dynamite with some olivespeckled nitroglycerin to ease swallowing, than you might hear the sound of....

well its a norwegian kind of film, and as the patriot i am, i will praise some of the special effects made for this flick, the sturdy use of peasantian language makes this a milestone as a memorial of the good old norwegian tv-theater flicks made in the language of ''bondsk'' nature, but thats more or less it. well i forgot the eminent aerials that shows off the world reknown outstandingly beautiful norwegian nature, that youll find in canada, alaska, chile, argentina, japan, among all the other places on mother earth that believes they are the best in the world.

the grumpy old man have said 4 stars is more than enough, its to glitchy and easy piecy made plot and script, calling the media that are present''online news'' are pretty weak and lacks a lot of phantasia. but if you believe in the thunderdome, then have a look, cause i'm son of odin, you know that bearded son of a gun with hugin and munin on each crest using his breidablikk to enrich and punish the good and the bad in ancient norwegian history, s? d? s?
