Holds all the ingredients to create a riveting film, but unfortunately it doesn't

Had the potential, but sadly 'Amundsen' underwhelms.

It's a fascinating biopic idea, given it's about the life of Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen. It holds all the ingredients to create a riveting film, but unfortunately it doesn't reach the heights it perhaps should've.

I think the biggest annoyance/frustration with this is how the story is unveiled. They reveal it in boring fashion through the voices of others, with it being told in both the native tongue and English. Both those things stopped me from creating a connection to the characters.

I like the cast, though. Pål Sverre Hagen leads strongly in the main role, while Christian Rubeck gives a good performance too. The rest of the support cast are solid if forgettable, with Katherine Waterston being the most memorable.

Cinematography is nice, though the ageing effects aren't the best. All in all, it isn't one I'd recommend.

Just because the film is going places (a few of them actually),it doesn't mean its pace is a fast one. Quite the opposite is the case. Therefor making it I reckon almost unwatchable for some. Having said that, if you are curious about the will and curiosity of men, that won't stop you (no pun intended).

I don't know the real persons/individuals and how truthful this is to what happened (and their interactions/rivalries),I just know that it does work decently on the big or small screen and for the movie and its purposes. Very nice cinematography and the acting is more than just solid too. Not for everyone, but that I reckon is true for many other movies too, in a different way.

Soul-less depiction of a great explorer...

Aside from the obvious headline, I'll admit to knowing precious little about this world renowned pioneer. This, though quite informative, offered me little meat to put on the bones of my schoolboy lessons. It straddles the line between history and melodrama in a rather sterile fashion with performances from Pål Sverre Hagan in the title role and Christian Rubeck as his brother Leon that are really pretty lacklustre - especially as they age. The narrative is frequently interesting when we are not embroiled in their complex love life, it gives us a genuine sense of the peril that followed almost every adventure the man undertook. Sadly, though, a mix of poor visual effects and a really dull script left me distinctly underwhelmed. Norwegians have a great deal to be proud of with both the achievements of Amundsen and his legacy, but sadly this probably isn't one of them....
