"Spielbergian in the best possible way, Ragnarok is an old school Hollywood style action adventure from a country not exactly known for them, director Mikkel Sandemose has packed Ragnarok with good-natured cinematic nods to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Alien."

- Joe Gross, Austin American-Statesman

"Ragnarok hits all of the right beats and makes for a pleasing adventure."

- Ryan Turek, Shock Till You Drop

"Ragnarok is a smart, fun film rooted in an engaging mythology, offering nods to films like Cliffhanger and The Lost World: Jurassic Park."

- Ryan Turek, Shock Till You Drop

"It’s as though the kids in 1985's The Goonies were accompanied by adults on a wilderness adventure. It adds up to a fun family adventure, with Norwegian style and a welcome edge, something even Indiana Jones in his prime could never quite achieve without a lot more bickering."

- Peter Martin, Twitch Film

"Spielbergian in the best possible way, Ragnarok is an old school Hollywood style action adventure from a country not exactly known for them, director Mikkel Sandemose has packed Ragnarok with good-natured cinematic nods to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jurassic Park and Alien."

- Joe Gross, Austin American-Statesman

"The first half of the film plays out like an Indiana Jones film, with Sigurd tracking down clues, exploring the wilderness, double-crosses, and at least a little bit of real-life history. The second half plays out more like Jurassic Park, with a group trying to escape a huge monster and the constant near-misses, close calls and improvised escape tactics. As soon as the movie was over, I wanted to go out and buy a battle axe and smash things while pretending I was a Viking."

- The Wolfman Cometh

"This family-friendly film pays homage to blockbusters such as Raiders of the Lost Ark and The Goonies without the overdone Hollywood gloss."

- Debbie Cerda, Slackerwood

"It's a family creature feature in a way that doesn't talk down to the kids or pander to them, which is good news for the adults in the crowd. I highly recommend checking it out if you get the chance."

- Quint, Ain’t It Cool News

"Ragnarok is the closest you’re going to get to a new Steven Spielberg movie in the manner of Jurassic Park or Raiders of the Lost Ark."

- Josh Spiegel, Sound on Sight

"RAGNAROK is an extremely satisfying trip back to when adventure films were thrilling, exciting, and most importantly, fun."

- ICONS OF FRIGHT

"A fun and energetic thrill ride."

- GOTCHA MOVIES

"A suspenseful, thrilling, delightful family adventure."

ABOUT THE FILM

Archeologist Sigurd Svendsen (Pål Sverre Hagen) has for years been obsessed with the Oseberg Viking ship. The only inscription found on the ship is the enigmatic ´man knows little` written in runes. Sigurd is sure that the Oseberg ship contains the answer to the mystery of Ragnarok, the end of days in Norse mythology. When his friend Allan finds similar runes on a stone from the north of Norway, Sigurd becomes convinced that the runes are in fact a treasure map. Together they mount an expedition group and their adventure leads to “No man’s Land” between Norway and Russia, which has been deserted for decades. Here Sigurd learns the true meaning of the runes – a secret more terrifying than he could possibly imagine.
