Me and my friends had nothing to do over the weekend, we decided to go see this film at our local cinema. I was looking forward to this this film as the trailer made it seem like it was going to be this thrilling and exciting horror movie, frankly it was neither thrilling or exciting. The plot was sub par, I don't think the writer and director had a clue whether they were making a horror or crime drama. It was a boring poor birth child of them both. The only thing that made it interesting was the nice visuals of Oslo and the other all look of the film, that was nice.
My main problem with the film is that as a crime drama goes there was little drama,barley any investigation and . Whenever there was a suspect it was not properly developed. What really annoyed me was the actually suspect was really nice to the main character and had no development, this made him a boring and uninteresting character. What annoyed me was his motives, without spoiling it they were poor and unrealistic. Also, why the hell would you go around building snowmen, in the intro the kid builds snow men but it's not explained why. Is it a coping method for what he is going through or is it something he enjoys to do. Doesn't make sense and not explained.
I say the visuals are good because they shot it in a photogenic place. This instantly made it look nice. I could of shot it on my iPhone 5s and it would of been a 10/10 master piece, look wise. It's a beautiful place. However one visual problem was the poor VFX, when a mans head get shot his neck flops around like a half eaten frube. That made me chuckle. I shouldn't laugh when someone's head gets blown apart but the effects made it comical.
The acting was all right, nothing interesting. Convocations where really stale, like a bagel at the bottom of my bread bin after I forgot to eat last summer. Therewas one shot where Harry Hole (What kind of unimaginative name is that, like seriously) is talking to his ex wife's new boyfriend. They are on a train and Harry has forgot about a camp he was going on with his son who doesn't know he's Harry's son or something along the lines of that. 2 problems with this is that firstly, Harry forgets a few things. It is set up like some kind of gimmick which is never acted upon. He just forgets things. This annoys me as I'm not sure why this was in the film, is it to make it relatable because men forget things? I don't know! Secondly it was such a boring scene. I had more amusement picking the chewing gum I accidentally stood in of my shoe. That is not why I watch a movie. Considering the plot was uninteresting you need good dialogue to keep the movie afloat. However the movie sunk. The only movie that can sink is the Titanic.
Overall, watch it if you want but don't expect anything too great!
