The Wave (2015)

2015 | Norway | Roar Uthaug | ★★★

Roar Uthaug's The Wave is a gripping if not particularly credible-feeling disaster movie, buoyed by convincing effects and relatively strong performances from its well-assembled cast, including stars Kristoffer Joner and Ane Dahl Torp.


"The very day he’s about to drive his family to a new life in the city, geologist Kristian Elkjord senses something wrong with the mountain that overlooks his scenic town. No one wants to believe that this could be the big one, especially with tourist season at its peak, but 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 in this thrilling action spectacular."
