Adventure, Thriller
Disaster movies? In Norway? The wonderfully named director Roar Uthaug seizes on the fact that there are more than 300 unstable mountainsides in his home country, to show what happens when a geologist (actor Kristoffer Joner) and his family are caught up in a massive rockslide and subsequent killer tsunami in the Western Norwegian town of Geiranger, which sits on one of the country’s most picturesque fjords. The screenplay – by John Kåre Raake and Harald Rosenløw-Eeg – is more or less standard disaster-pic fare, with Uthaug’s welcome wrinkle of closer, more personal action scenes when The Big One reaches the unlucky family. The convincing CGI tsunami sweeping across the fjord reportedly made this the single most expensive film ever produced in Norway (104 min.).
