DVD Review: TROLLHUNTER (2011)

This first thing going into TROLL HUNTER is not expecting it to be this good and it is! We follow a documentary crew following a "bear" hunter who turns out to be an expert at trapping trolls, but these aren't the trolls you and I grew up with, these are towering monsters that can get up too 200 feet tall. The man finally decides to let the crew follow him around and film him at what he does but they're kind of a bother and do get in the way. 

We see trolls that you just can't imagine ever seeing (some with three heads), the ways to trap and kill them are very unique and imaginative and are fun to watch up to the very end where we get to see a 200 ft tall troll. All I can say is I wanted the movie to keep going and I  am really hoping for a sequel from the same people who made this!

The special effects are freaking awesome in this movie! Daytime or nighttime ore even in night vision these trolls look so real and of course we have our awesome actors making us believe all of this is real. Director André Øvredal pulls out all the stops with this movie and makes it a hit and an enjoyable adventure and takes the mythology of the creatures to the next level.The camera angles and the way the actors react to the trolls are awesome to watch and it sucks you in.

The English dubbing is available or you can watch in subtitles.

Bottom line is I highly recommend that you pick up the Troll Hunter DVD and add it to you collection of monster movies because it's one of the best I've seen in a long time! This is a new kind of monster movie that you'll love! 4/5

The government says there’s nothing to worry about – it’s just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway. But local hunters don’t believe it – and neither do a trio of college students who want to find out the truth. Armed with a video camera, they trail a mysterious “poacher,” who wants nothing to do with them. However, their persistence lands them straight in the path of the objects of his pursuits: trolls. They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero – the trollhunter – risking their lives to 
uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
