Netflix movie review: Troll – Tomb Raider director’s Norway-set monster film is competently made but frustrating

  • Troll looks the part, with great effects and action scenes, but seems most interested in emulating Hollywood blockbusters such as Jurassic Park and Godzilla
  • There’s a frustrating lack of focus on Scandinavia’s fascinating and unique folklore, which leaves Roar Uthaug’s movie feeling derivative and unexceptional
