The Wave (15)
Thu 01 Jan 1970 - Thu 01 Jan 1970
Norway, 2015, 103 mins, dir. Roar Uthaug, English subtitles
Roar Uthaugs nail-biting thriller is the perfect disaster movie for fans of Nordic noir as seismic rumblings in the Norwegian fjords threaten to start a chain reaction that will destroy the local area. Can it be stopped in time?
This nerve-shredding portrayal of a potential catastrophe that current science suggests may be just waiting to happen follows a first-rate geologist who senses something is wrong with the mountains that surround him. When a landslide from the Mountain sends tons of rock and earth crashing into the sea, everyone has ten minutes to outrace the resulting tsunami to higher ground. Loaded with suspense The Wave rewrites the rulebook for disaster movies.
‘An impressive, thunderous nerve-wracker’
‘Puts Hollywood disaster movies to shame’
