Riveting disaster movie - The Wave review by Alphaville

Spoiler Alert
05/11/2016

This terrific disaster movie shows Hollywood how to do it. No stupid characters, no banal dialogue, no bad guys and no heroics. Just an ordinary family, emotionally real, fighting for their lives in an apocalyptic nightmare of a situation. A mountain is about to fall into a fjord… and it’s tourist season. The effects may not be perfect but they’re exciting enough. Following his brace of serial-killer-in-the-snow Cold Prey films, director Roar Uthaug ratchets up the tension to breaking point and delivers a gripping vision of hell.

Disaster? - The Wave review by JT

Spoiler Alert

Certainly a great story line but the ending was very "Hollywood" and too nicely sewn up. Made a change to see this type of film in the World Cinema category though. Gave it a poor star rating for the ending alone

Big Nordic Blanc - The Wave review by RC

Spoiler Alert

My main reason for watching was having just been to Geiranger, which is totally awesome. It was pretty good as disaster films go, a bit too neatly tied up in the end.
