Plot

The film opens with a brief footage of Max fighting in Finland in the 1940 Winter War. After the war Manus returns to a German occupied Norway. He joins the resistance movement and from their he receives special training as saboteurs. After training, He and his friends starts to fight against Nazis.

Thoughts

The film is based on the real events of the life of resistance fighter Max Manus. It's always good to see true stories. After finishing this kind of movies, I was looking for more information about the real events. The film opens with a war scene and there onwards it's pretty clear that it's going to be a wonderful ride. Aksel Hennie is a very good looking actor, but not look like real Max. Overall, it's a solid and a fascinating biographic war movie.
