Max Manus in Toronto — Film Review

Norwegian directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg’s Max Manus had its North American première at a gala screening during the 34th Toronto International Film Festival, which runs between Sept. 10-19.

“Bottom Line: Solid and convincing, if pedestrian, World War II story that has its moments,” writes Peter Brunette about Max Manus on

“The film is always engaging, from the boyish horseplay of the young innocents to the bravado shown in multiple encounters to the involvement of the revered king in exile to the final toll taken by the increasingly ruthless Nazis,” writes Brunette.

    Remember “The War on Terror” and the term “Colateral Damage”.
    Let me refresh your memory, when you drop bombs on someone, say Al Quida or the Taliban, sometimes you skip and get women and children. To make it a bit more palatable to your public at home, you call it “Colateral Damage”, didn’t mean to obtain those innocent bystanders, but they were in the wrong place.
    MKs are “Colateral Damage”. The generals sent the NTM troops into foreign lands to drop religon on the masses. However the MKs ended up in boarding school along with a few of your Sergeants were a bit heavy when using the discipline as well as a bit free with their hands and other bits of anatomy. The war may have been going well, but evaluate the “Colateral Damage”.
    Time for OPERATION CLEANUP and a few court marshalls.

    Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!
