Release year: 2013

 The widowed archaeologist Sigurd Svendsen (Sverre Hagen) brings his kids along on a journey to find the secrets he and his deceased wife searched passionately for. But some secrets are dangerous to uncover.

 Norwegian adventure movie Ragnarok is a fantasy movie with a touch of monster movie and is a fun way to breath life into the ancient Norse Myths. Sverre Hagen has already found international fame playing Thor Heyerdahl in the Oscar nominated movie Kon-Tiki from 2012 and here he plays an unlikely hero. Sigurd is one who has studied runes and artifacts, not one who is used to action and it is fun watching him being rescued by the more action-ready Elisabeth, played convincingly by Helin (Arn: The Knight Templar, 2007). Luckily, they have also found a couple of kids able to act and the special effects are decent, making this an entertainment and different take on the Norse mythology with some scenic shots of beautiful Norway.

 Moviegeek info:

 The Oseberg Ship actually has a runic inscription which is commonly translated as “litet-vis maðr”, which means “man knows little”.
