Nestled in Norway's Sunnmore region, Geiranger is one of the most spectacular tourist draws on the planet. With the mountain Akerneset overlooking the village - and constantly threatening to collapse into the fjord - it is also a place where disaster could strike at any moment.
"The Wave" adds credible writing and effective acting to gangbusters special effects, resulting in a white-knuckle experience a bit higher on the plausibility scale than what we're used to from Hollywood versions of the genre.Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
Something like The Wave is indeed a rarity - without skimping on the spectacle that glues eyeballs to the screen, it takes the time to develop its characters.James Berardinelli, ReelViews
