Narvik (2023) Movie Review: Narvik, Netflix’s latest war drama film, is directed by Erik Skjoldbjaerg and is based on real historical war events that occurred in Norway during Hilter’s rule. It is primarily set in the village of Narvik.
In this article, I will review this film and tell you whether it is worth watching or not. I will also explain its positive and negative aspects, which will clear up any confusion about whether it is of your type or not.
The story of this war film is set in 1940 in Norway, where we see the world through the eyes of a small town in northern Norway named Narvik, which is a huge source of iron ore as this iron ore is needed for the hilt of the war machine; more information about the story of this village is provided in this film.
While the cinematography of this film looks decent, aside from the VFX shots in some scenes needing more renders as they sometimes look fake but not always, the music playing in the background maintains the mood of the film, which is one of its major plus points.
Now, the first half of this film focuses on the characters, which is good because we need to get to know the characters, and the second half focuses on the plans to get their hands on Narvik, which moves quickly and is enjoyable to watch, but the plot feels lagging in the second half.

The length of this film is approximately 110 minutes, which is good because it does not bore me, but the characters we see do not feel connected to the people, and in the end, when some characters died, we couldn’t feel any connection.

Finally, if you like war drama films and want to watch something decent, you should try to watch this; if you don’t like historical war dramas, I don’t think you’re missing out on anything, but you should still watch the film once.
