What Godzilla and King-Kong can do, a troll can do for a long time: In the mountains of Norway, one of these gigantic creatures wakes up in the new Netflix monster movie » Troll » from its deep sleep, which has lasted for thousands of years, and tramples everything that gets in its way puts. The troll quickly sets course for Norway’s capital Oslo — and if it were to reach it, it would be a catastrophe of Godzilla proportions!

The action-adventure about the eponymous troll hunters, which we rated a strong 4 out of 5 stars in the FILMSTARTS review, can be ordered from Amazon, for example, via the link above.
