Deep inside the mountain of Dovre, something gigantic awakens after being trapped for a thousand years. Destroying everything in its path, the creature is fast approaching the capital of Norway. But how do you stop something you thought only existed in Norwegian folklore?

My child has recently become obsessed with the hall of the mountain king. So I had looked up the original that morning to find it translates as " Dovregubbens hall" where gubbens means old man and Dovre is the mountain in which the Troll lives.

So I was very pleased to see the film start with the building a railway through Dovre mountain.

This was fun, but it hit every single beat of a modern disaster movie, not even pretending to be different -- which was refreshing in its way, I guess. I kept comparing it to the much better Trollhunter at first. Eventually, though, I was touched by the creatures. What would you do if someone was dragging a missing infant's skull to get you to follow them?
