You'll believe it when you see it!
Is one of the most unusual monster movies you've seen! The ' Troll Hunter ' is a fantasy film from Norway with scattered elements of horror and comedy simultaneously caused a sensation both at home and in the U.S. and elsewhere. My opinion is that the fuss about this is not justified without this meaning that the movie is bad or weak. Let's look in more detail.
The famous monsters of the Norwegian folklore called Trolls, are the essence of this film. It is gruesome and often kakomoytsoyna man-eating monsters with human soyloypi but much louder and hair than the average man. Various myths the frame such as turning them to stone in sunlight, the nocturnal action, their ability to osfrainontai Christian blood and many more. The ' Troll Hunter ' takes as basic raw material the troll and using widespread technique of amateur camera (found footage) tells a fun and crazy story that definitely does not pass unnoticed.
After the necessary acquaintance with the three youngsters who will film the adventure, we know the Lonely Hunter who has a mission to troll exterminates. This guy shows initially hesitant but then agrees to work with young people and leaves them to film the unusual hunt. Of course, when we talk about oversize carnivorous creatures such as trolls, the mission is more than just dangerous, something you will perceive from the very first encounter with the terrible creatures.
The film notoriously draws ideas from the Norwegian folk tradition. One of the most representative scenes by putting kids on a bridge as bait for trolls beneath is adaptation of the Norwegian 19th century fairy tale "Three Billy Goats Gruff" in which three kids attempt to pass off a bridge but given up by a troll that lurks beneath.
I will not say more about the plot so as not to reveal certain aspects that are not always logical but are proving useful for the justification of the story. Those who will be from the ' Troll Hunter ' is the dramatically-although slightly kartoynistika-troll, the wonderful shots of the mountainous and forested landscape of Norway and some very exciting Chase scenes where hunters are usually the troll. There is also humor but in limited contexts despite the participation of many comedians from the scene of Norway.
However the ' Troll Hunter ' far from being impressive film reported several critics, most notably from the country of origin. After the defects are the big drawback. Additionally, if a company you know a character beyond the merry Hunter (of the greatest comedians of Norway) tell him to us. The film was also somewhat far-fetched. Generally I spend well seen but don't have very high expectations because I get frustrated.

Prototypes and well-made monsters, a great photo from the natural scenery of Norway, good effects, high suspense in some scenes.
Quite slowly and casually points, the lack of interesting characters than the native Hunter, sporadic problems in the script.
