The Wave (2015) Poster

Although anticipated, no one is really ready when the mountain pass above the scenic, narrow Norwegian fjord Geiranger collapses and creates an 85-meter high violent tsunami. A geologist is one of those caught in the middle of it.

| Great start, but ultimately fails to deliver
I won't give it a 1 star rating because it is actually pretty well executed,

The beginning and the middle of the movie are actually pretty good and reasonably believable.

The movie falls apart however when the tsunami actually starts. Basically people start behaving so cringe worthily stupid, that the movie loses most of the credibility it built up until then.

Pity, because it started out so well.

So , up until the wave it gets a 7.5 stars. The special effects also 7.5 stars. The plot after the wave: 1 star. Acting: 6 stars. Sound: 9 stars.
