      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Well-acted and blessed with a refreshingly humanistic focus, The Wave is a disaster film that makes uncommonly smart use of disaster film clichés.

      Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com It's a real world ecological thriller that doesn't forget about the human story running through the heart of the narrative, and as such the film ends up being an avalanche of thrills and chills I cannot wait to watch again. Rated: 3.5/4 Aug 15, 2016 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) The intimate focus, juxtaposed with the unsettling beauty of the backdrop and the eerie stillness of the aftermath, brings a novel twist to the well-worn disaster movie format. Rated: 4/5 Aug 14, 2016 Full Review Kate Muir Times (UK) The Wave is a small-town Norwegian disaster movie writ satisfyingly large. Rated: 4/5 Aug 12, 2016 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies What Roar Uthaug and company have given us is a film that manages to be unashamedly a disaster movie while at the same time distinguishing itself as something unique. Rated: 4.5/5 Aug 21, 2022 Full Review Hilary A White Sunday Independent (Ireland) Other than its Nordic setting, The Wave has nothing new to offer the genre, lifting its entire structure from any number of volcano or earthquake films we've seen dozens of times already. Rated: 2/5 Apr 26, 2020 Full Review David Harris Spectrum Culture The Wave ultimately stumbles once its titular flood hits, exposing a story predicated on cliché and budgetary restraints.

      Georgan G Well done disaster flick with beautiful scenery and horrifying special effects. Predictable, but worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Randi C This movie feels like it could be real. Unlike most disaster movies, this one focuses more on the actual human side of things. All kinds of emotions going into it and a great cast. The wave is beautiful and eerie and it will actually get your pulse racing because it just feels real. I just wish once the wave started to form that they had slowed it down a bit more to keep the tension going. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/24 Full Review Carlos T Filme: A Onda Assistido: 4-8-23 Elenco: #kristofferjoner @jonasoftebro @snappaktig @fridjovsaheim @eilih Modelo: #catastrofe #ação #action #suspense Duração: 1:44h Ano: 2015 Minha opinião: Um filme norueguês, que surpreendeu na sua obra, sem atores conhecidos. Souberam trazer um estoria e um roteiro que prende a atenção do telespectador. Uma boa atuação dos atores. A estoria se passa em algum local da Noruega, onde o turismo a locomotiva da cidade. Que fica em um vale cheio montanhas formadas de rocha. Que na sua estoria já houve o desmoronamento e isto ter se transformado em um gigante tsunami dentro do vale. Porém com uito tempo passado agora existem geólogos e estação de prevenção. E onde temos Kristoffer que esta mudando de cidade. Porem um ultimo trabalho o chama. Alguns sinais deixa kristoffer inquieto, enquanto sua mulher trabalha no hotel e seu filho também esta lá. Acontece o inevitável a queda do rochedo e o tsunami. E ele tenta salvar a vida do maior numero de pessoas. E assim que tsunami passa ele vai a procura deles. E com todo este suspense a trama vai se construindo, lembrando o estilo de filme dos Coreanos. Graças a Deus ele consegue salvar a todos. Diferente de como seria no coreano, alguém ficaria para tras. Com baixo orçamento artistas desconhecidos, consegue se fazer um bom trabalho. Roteiro e enredo bom. Vale apena assistir? sim Nota: 7,25 Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/07/23 Full Review karen V Excellent action disaster film . I started to watch a horrible US disaster film and stopped fifteen minutes into the movie and then watched THE WAVE - great drama, acting, characters and the action and disaster is not the main character of the film. The actors are fantastic and you get over the subtitles in a few minutes . Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/06/23 Full Review Patricia K are u kidding me? people rating this high are high. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 07/18/23 Full Review Regina P For its budget, the acting and graphics were just fine. It's just that... the beginning of the movie made me unable to buy anything that happened afterwards. Like... if you are scientist and you know what you know, why spend the night there when you were planning on leaving the very next day, anyhow??? It makes no sense whatsoever. Not only did he spend the night, but he split up his family. Did he not believe any of his findings? Would it not have been a lot wiser to leave sooner for the sake of your family? That is what is keeping me from accepting the story. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 06/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
