WE NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD HAPPEN TO US.
Sweden finds itself under attack from a foreign power; Alex (Christoffer Nordenrot) tries to make his way back to the place where he grew up, but his father (Jesper Barkselius) is already preparing for the worst. The first feature film to come out of the filmmaking collective Crazy Pictures is both ambitious and clichéd. Most characters are badly written and far from engaging, even if Barkselius has its moments as a prepper. The emotional aspects are far inferior to the visual effects and the increasingly unsettling atmosphere.
