Meh. Interesting premise (and a very interesting guy!) but the movie itself is too conventional and Hollywood.
The pacing suffers a little from needing to adhere to historical accuracy but fine performances, first rate cinematography, and an inherently suspenseful story lead us to the insightful, tragic conclusion.
not bad for norwegians doing a hollywood movie about norwegians fighting nazis in ww2.
Max Manus is an interesting story during a difficult time in history. Watch it if you want a Norwegian view of WWII.
