Critic Reviews for Ragnarok

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (1)

An action-adventure yarn wrapped around a monster-movie core, Ragnarok elevates familiar B-movie material with well-matched cultural specificity and realistic family dynamics.

Bring it on, Norway. "Ragnarök" is a fantasy adventure that's really impressive. Although it can scare younger children, most of the family will be just fine with this hybrid of a B-movie creature feature and the Nicholas Cage flick, "National Treasure."

"Ragnarok" plays like Norway's answer to "Jurassic Park." If the film is derivative of Steven Spielberg's 1993 blockbuster, the skillfulness with which the similarities are deposited is also what makes it memorable.

Ragnarok ain't a home run, but it's a solid double, and certainly enough to cause Hollywood scouts to raise an eyebrow.

An old school Hollywood style action adventure from a country not exactly known for them, director Mikkel Sandemose has packed Ragnarok with good-natured cinematic nods to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Alien.

Audience Reviews for Ragnarok

½

This decent Norwegian take on a monster movie plus treasure hunt for the whole family obviously borrows a lot from Jurassic Park and Raiders of the Lost Ark but doesn't disappoint, with the kind of adventure-turned-nightmare to be expected and good performances.

Exciting and well put together adventure story from Norway. Solid direction and strong script writing (for the genre). Commendable performances by Pål Sverre Hagen and Nicolai Cleve Broch -- and even decent performances by the child actors. It's a thoroughly enjoyable film.

Sub-standard monster movie, horrible CGI, but more importantly, thinly drawn characters that never engaged me. Probably fits right at home on the SCI-Fi channel.
