Product Description

Max Manus: Man of War is an explosive, adrealine-pumping thrill ride and the true story of one man's heroic actions in the line of duty. Max Manus is a Norwegian freedom fighter involved in liberating his country from the occupying Nazi forces. His ability to carry out sabotage attacks on the Germans with pinpoint precision earns him a reputation as one of Norway's elite. Despite his numerous triumphs on the battlefront, Manus struggles to come to terms with the loss of his comrade's lives and the futility of war. Based on true events, this film's moving storyline and stunning visual brings to life this epic chapter in World War II history.


"A Tense Drama of the Deadly Cat and Mouse Between the Resistance and the Nazi's." --Anthony Quinn, The Independent (UK)

"A Rousing, Epic, Blockbuster" --Alissa Simon, Variety

"A Tight Rollicking Thriller" --Todd Brown,

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible September 9, 2009
By Eli
This movie is based on a true story about a hero who did not want the nazis to take his country Norway. I watched the movie with a person who helped Max Manus escape and who actualy lived this story. He thought this interpretation was very realistic. Even some of the characters looked like the ones he remembers. A fantastic movie about a WWII chapter we rarely hear about.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dramatic Depiction of Norwegian Resistance! April 2, 2010
I'm a fan of WWII films and always in search of new ones from whatever origin. This is the first Norwegian film I ever watched and it is a real outstanding war film.
"Max Manus" (2008) is a big budget World War II movie making good use of every cent invested in producing it. Directed by Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg who had co-directed four films and in a fifth one they were director one and writer the other. In this film they show a steady hand in presenting and solving actions scenes as well as intimate ones.

The story is about Norwegian resistance to German invasion of their country. They start as a small band of youthful friends implementing tiny, yet dangerous, propaganda and sabotage acts.
Then things start to get "warmer" and Max is surprised by the police, he jumps thru a window and afterwards manages to escape from hospital.
The Resistance sends him to Scotland to a special training camp for saboteurs. Back in Norway he leads many daring coup-de-main until the end of the war.
In the way he loses his friends one by one to the hands of the Germans, this erodes his soul and still he never gives up!

Playacting is really very good with Aksel Hennie as Max Manus, Nicolai Cleve Broch as Gregers Gram, Ken Duken as the German Police Chief and Agnes Kittelsen as Tikken. They all perform over par fleshing convincingly their characters.

Photography and musical score are great and period reconstruction is outstanding.

It is a great movie for all those interested in war films and general public too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Max Manus DVD Review May 19, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I saw "Max Manus" at the Minneapolis-St Paul International Film Festival in April. Actually, my cousin from Norway wrote this movie, so I have been looking for a version with English subtitles. The DVD is just like what we saw at the film festival. It's an excellent film that anyone would love...even people like me who don't like war movies. I love that the end is a documentary about writing and filming the whole thing. It was so popular at that film festival that they showed it two more time in two theaters each time . See it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, great WW II movie November 6, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If your like me, always searching for some little WWII movie 'gem' you might not have seen yet, you'll be very satisfied with this movie about amazing Norway resistence fighter Max Manus. Manus and a few of his friends volunteer to fight for Finland when they were invaded by Russia then watches his own country do nothing when the Germans invade Norway. He organizes his buddies into getting back at the Germans and the film documents multiple attacks and harrowing escapes he manages to survive all very well done. The story moves along swiftly with Max going to England to become part of a Norwegian company of commandos sent back behind enemy lines to harass the Germans. This is a rich & moving film as we see many of Max's comrades be captured, tortured or killed but he himself always manging to get away. Whatever Max was missing in himself in civilian life, he finds it during the war as he emerges as a tenacious, bold and fearless leader who defeats the Germans over & over. And whatever you do don't miss the special features documentary of the real Max Manus talking about his life and his friends lost to the War. The documentary also features his Wife who he married after the War and she describes Max the kind of Man who only comes along "once in a lifetime", very true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie December 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good movie. Especially interesting since all the events in the movie is based on real time events from the war. All the characters are real and that makes the movie more moving. Also Norway was one of the countries where the resistance was the fiercest.

This is a fantastic account of the situation in Norway during WWII. Even though it is in Norwegian it is engaging and very well done. There are comments at the end by men who actually lived through it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good 'foreign' film about an obscure part of WWII February 20, 2014
By J. Lyda
Format:Amazon Instant Video
This movie is a Norwegian production, and it requires reading the subtitles in English. The product is very good, and the actors first class. The combat scenes, which are interspersed thru the movie, are violent and realistic in a way I rarely see, and capture much of the chaos and confusion of combat. While the Nazi's are brutal in this movie, they are not made into the focal point of the movie. Rather the story is about this man, Max Manus, who was extraordinarily brave, regular man who becomes a true patriot. I enjoyed it throughout, largely because the characters were so real and interesting. Their is that 'European' quality to the production which frequently is a bit more thought provoking than many US films.

The pacing suffers a little from needing to adhere to historical accuracy but fine performances, first rate cinematography, and an inherently suspenseful story lead us to the insightful, tragic conclusion.
