RAGNAROK (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì 

Ragnarok—Norwegian thriller—works for international appeal and completely succeeds. This movie has excellent English subtitles to support its Norwegian language. The suspense has been well timed and presented. The actors have successfully portrayed and interpreted their characters. While the ending seems a bit abrupt, it is due to audience desire to see more. A sequel would be welcome. The movie could easily develop itself into a series of films that examine archaeological finds in Norway.
