TIFF REVIEW: FILM #7 "Lapland Odyssey"
DIRECTED BY - Dome Karukoski
IN MY OPINION - 7/10
Very fun wild roadtrip movie.
Here's the thing. There's nothing really wrong with this movie, but there's also nothing really great about it either. It a solid film, with funny moments and emotional moments- arcs for all, but none of it jumped out or went above and beyond.
At the end there is a great wrap up helicopter moment that was just hilarious and well handled - at the same time it entirely missed the pay off to a wine bottle full of urine. Oh well, anoter time perhaps.
