A leisurely, shambling, deadpan movie about a man who finds trolls and kills them. That's enough.

Not nearly as much fun as it might have been, neither consistently funny nor remotely scary.

Trollhunter adopts the form of a found footage documentary, which translates as lots of banal conversations, abundant shots of the Scandinavian countryside, and competent but shaky handheld camerawork.

TrollHunter is both creepy and funny, a clever combination for this sly monster movie.

What do you get when you combine Cloverfield with Nordic Trolls? This very funny monster mockumentary.

The trolls here all are the spitting image of Muppets with a hyperthyroid problem. In fact, imagine a Sweetums doll after three wash cycles.

The film is shot with handheld cameras in the standard mockumentary style, but the content is often hilarious, especially when the trolls show up.

This found-film sci-fi trolls-on-the-loose story works well enough as a kind of tongue-in-cheek comedy spoofing films of this kind and the sheer idiocy behind these kinds of conspiracy theories.

TROLLHUNTER is an unexpected pleasure for viewers who can shudder at the horrific aspects while still appreciating the humor.

Delightfully silly and likely to etch the battle-cry of "troll!" into audiences' minds long after its end.

[A] funny, scary, highly individual horror flick...
September 10, 2011
Øvredal's Troll Hunter delivers an earnest fantasy adventure bathed in Nordic spirit and folklore that captures the heart, as well as the imagination.

One of the year's most blindingly brilliant films.

Øvredal's movie has wittier ideas up its sleeve than the average "mock-doc" shocker, a genre it transcends through sheer originality.

Jespersen is a veteran comedian and he uses all his gravitas and dry wit to make us care about a lonely man on the verge of a crisis of faith.

There's tons of delicious suspense of the horror-flick variety... and plenty of Spielbergian shock-awe... but what makes it one of the most satisfying examples of found-footage flicks yet is its observational, journalistic ethos.
