Here is another entry in the ongoing surge of Norwegian disaster movies, which counts box-office successes such as Bølgen, Skjelvet, and more recently, Tunnelen. This time, we're going offshore to look at the potential dangers of the North Sea oil industry. The script by Harald Rosenløw-Eeg and Lars Gudmestad follows a classic genre-recipe, but director John Andreas Andersen (who also helmed the aforementioned Skjelvet) isn't able to lift the story from the pages. We're stuck in the mire (of oil) with a handful of semi-interesting characters who are overly focused on all too familiar disaster movie elements such as family and sacrifice. There are some well-crafted individual scenes with real suspense, but they're embedded in a somewhat uninspired framework which makes the film ultimately a little underwhelming.
