fine disaster
28 June 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

It's three years after the events in The Wave which made geologist Kristian Eikjord a national hero. Idun is divorcing him. Julia comes to visit him and finds him a recluse racked with survivor's guilt about the deaths from the tsunami. A colleague sends him a package of data and then dies in the Oslo Tunnel. Kristian investigates and concludes that Oslo is soon to be hit by a major earthquake but no one believes him.

I'm afraid that I don't remember much about the characters in The Wave. It's not a requirement. As long as you know what The Wave is about, the start is self-explanatory although a few scenes of the tsunami could be useful action to pump up the beginning. The middle is a little slow at times and repetitive. The earthquake is solid disaster movie material. There is a good ten minutes of high tension pre-earthquake. The disaster itself is diminished by the idiot kid trope. Almost all of it could be avoided if Julia does not become an idiot. Kristian should have been more forceful telling her to stay in the car. Marit should be more observant. The whole last fifteen minutes would be unnecessary if she stayed in the car. It is one of those annoying tropes. Overall, this is akin to those 70's disaster movies and works fine as such.
