THE WAVE REVIEWED
“The Wave” proves that the International Community can match America with the disaster movie. A perfect Norwegian country town is about to be destroy by a massive tidal wave. A large rock is going to crash into a local lake and trigger an extinction level event for the local community. The difference with this film is that it uses the disaster to scare the living hell out of the audience. It’s not that the water is coming, it’s going to come. However, it’s how the characters survive the incident.
Watching people choke and become compressed in flooding areas is very heavy. The movie chooses to have very few hero moments or long speeches. You’re going to watch people fight for their lives and property is going to get destroyed. The impact will be fast and swift. Nobody will have a chance to say a thing against it. That along is why the film beats any disaster movie I’ve seen from America in the last decade. Outrunning disaster isn’t interesting. I want to see what people do when everything goes straight to Hell. Pick it up if you’re curious.
