Trollhunter (2010)

Director: André Øvredal

Stars: Otto Jespersen, Robert Stoltenberg, Knut Nærum

When bears are found dead in Norway, students from Volda University, Thomas, Johanna and cameraman Kalle, decide to investigate. They stalk the trail of the mysterious hunter Hans expecting to find an explanation for the killings. The reluctant Hans tries to flee from the youngsters, but then agrees to let them film him in action, provided they follow his orders. Soon the trio of students learns that Hans is actually a troll hunter working for a secret government agency. Further, several dangerous trolls have escaped from their territory and Hans is assigned to eliminate them.

I am not a fan of found footage movie, but this one got really good reviews, so I thought I would give it a try. This was not a bad movie at all. It took a while for the movie to get going, but when it did, the movie got better and better.

The image of the trolls were pretty cool. They were so huge. They almost looked real, in a way. I like the creation of the trolls. They just blended in with the background. There was not that terrible black line around each one of them. It look like they really took their time to make this movie look as real as possible. They did a great job.

If you can find this movie dubbed or subtitled in your native language, you need to see it. It is a good movie. The trolls look great. Enjoy.
