[5.50/10] Mortal (2020)

Mortal (2020)

Quick Review: Bleak in tone, grim in feel, yet stylish, and emphasizing the splendor of Norwegian scenery, "Mortal" is too slow, uneventful, and surprisingly lackluster for a fantasy dealing with an ordinary man who gains stormy God-like superpowers, and Nat Wolff looks uncomfortable in the lead, and yet director Øvredal redeems himself in the unveling final act, manifesting his inspiration and admiration for the Norse mythology, even if the abrupt ending makes the movie seem incomplete.

After the unique brilliance of Trollhunter, that's a bit of a let down.

Alex, indeed. I was so underwhelmed by it...
