Movie Info

In 1904 an earthquake with a 5.4 magnitude on the Richter scale shook Oslo. Its epicenter was in the Oslo Rift which runs directly through the Norwegian capital. There are recorded quakes from the rift on a daily basis and geologists cannot be sure, but arguments indicate that we can expect major future earthquakes in this area. When - nobody can say for certain - but we know that the density of people and infrastructure in Oslo is significantly more vulnerable today than in 1904. What if a massive earthquake is looming?

Critic Reviews for The Quake (Skjelvet)

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (5)

For the more open-minded, The Quake offers visceral thrills.

December 15, 2018 | Full Review…

There are fewer special effects shots than we'd see in a Hollywood version, but they are shrewdly deployed and suitably unsettling.

December 14, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The Quake isn't your standard catastrophe drama, even if it does leave viewers shaking in their boots.

December 14, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

It's just intelligent and serious enough to give you your escapist cake - deluxe popcorn perils in all their big-screen glory - without making you eat the familiar guilt of empty-calorie overload.

December 12, 2018 | Full Review…

Joner is a capable actor, but he's required here to remain for such a long time in a one-note condition of mental fragility that our sympathy for the character starts to give way to exasperation.

December 11, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

While not as mind-blowing or exhilarating as The Wave, The Quake is, without a doubt, a very solid, enjoyable, and thrilling experience.
