Gåten Ragnarok is a Norwegian adventure movie about an archaeologist going to find Viking treasures together with his children, but finds something lethal instead.  Although I like the story, which is grounded in norse mythology, the pacing is not good.  It does not give any hint of excitement until half of the movie is passed.  Children in this type of movies tend to be really annoying, but I’m glad they aren’t too annoying here.  The climax is done pretty well, although it may seem a little unusual.  People compare this to Indiana Jones but I think this comparison is wrong – I think it compares better to a certain 1997 movie that begins with “A”.
