The good stuff

The Trip

I Onde Dager
2021 / 113m - Norway
Horror, Comedy

A great return to form for Tommy Wirkola. The biggest trap for dark comedies is that they daren't push the limits. They quit when it's really just starting to get fun. There's none of that here, no doubt thanks to Wirkola's background in horror cinema. The first half is knowingly predictable (twists included), the middle part is where it starts to get fun, the finale is completely bonkers. Wirkola serves a great mix of genres, blending comedy, thriller and horror elements to create a superbly entertaining film.

Solid pieces

Wirkola isn't the man to do serious sci-fi. This could've been a very amusing genre film, but Wirkola takes the film a bit too serious, which only draws attention to its flaws. The concept is interesting enough and Rapace is good times seven, but the film fails to make a lasting impression and feels way too flimsy.

Worthy but flawed
