Mortal (2020)

 

Synopsis

In Norway, a psychologist becomes intertwined with the Norwegian-American teen with mysterious abilities. Burning objects and individuals he touches, the origins of Eric's abilities are a mystery.

Review

Mortal is a fantasy thriller with ties to modern superhero movie trends. It's atmospheric and has some strong performances by the leads. The setting is gorgeous. Norway is a beautiful country. The source of Eric's abilities are pretty obvious to most viewers and it takes a bit too long for the characters to figure it out, but it's still an interesting ride. While the overall film is slow at times, the third act is phenomenal. One thing I really like about this film is that it addresses a comic thing that always made me think. How do you still worship an invisible unknowable god, when there is a tangible one walking the world?

My only major complaint is the film has an extremely abrupt ending that leaves things  hanging. The director was definitely banking on a sequel.
