By focusing on the human characters, "The Wave" is a more compelling disaster film than the usual.

Who knew there was a Norwegian version of Roland Emmerich out there? Seriously, though, while I'm sure it had a fraction of the budget of most American big-budget disaster films, Roar Uthaug crafts a nice story that has decent characters, a lot of action and even some tense moments. It's a good time - just make sure to watch the subtitled version and stay away from the awful dubbed version.

Remember those disaster films from the 70's that gave us a believable situation with decent characters and an escalation in tensity? Well, this is a solid return to that tried-and-true formula. This foreign film with a smaller budget and no recognizable actors has perfectly emulated that past sub-genre by delivering on the basics. A stopped-down satisfying romp that doesn't skimp on the thrills.
