3 out of 10 True story.
Alan from Dublin, 25 Oct 2009
This might sound like a spoof war film judging by the title but it's actually based on the real life story of Max Manus, a Norwegian resistance fighter in WW2. I was a little dissappointed with this as most of the action was shown in the trailer and I found it hard to engage with the characters ( maybe due to the subtitles ). That said, it does give an insight to the less glamourous side of the war.

5 out of 10 This movie has everything
Paul from Cork, 11 May 2010
What a great movie & the most expensive Norwegian movie ever made. It has it all, action, drama and tension from start to finish. Based on Max Manus's post war accounts of the war period in Norway. The blu-ray version also has a good documentary about him with rare interviews with Max Manus. Rent this and you won't be disappointed.

4 out of 10 Take War to the Max!
Michael J from Wicklow, 30 Jul 2009
True story of Max Manus and the Norwegian resistance. Not a topic many people will be familiar with but the film gives a great insight into the period and the risks, and the toll that it took to fight the Nazis.

What's it about....
What would you do if your country was stolen? How far would you go to get your country back? In a time of war, in a country thrown into chaos one man would dare to fight back! An explosive, adrenaline pumping thrill-ride from start to finish, this is the incredible true story of Max Manus ? leader of the irrepressible Oslo Gang, whose urban guerrilla war against occupying Nazi Germany helped free their country and establish Max as a living legend.
