Troll Hunter (2010) | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 96

Troll Hunter is definitely a unique cinematic experience. A group of students (who look WAY too old to be students, but whatever) decide to investigate a bunch of bear killings. They meet a guy named Hans, who claims to be a troll hunter. Soon, they discover things that they had only read about in storybooks.

The acting is decent, with a few instances that didn’t gel with me. Some of the lines were misses, but overall I liked how the film was executed. The best character is the troll hunter, Hans. You can tell he’s tired of his job (and who wouldn’t be? He nearly gets eaten and squashed by trolls on a daily basis).

The style of the film is found-footage, which works for Troll Hunter. It helps you believe that these “kids” are actually doing research on the bear killings and it places you in their shoes when shit hits the fan.

I actually really liked the creature design. There are three different types of trolls depicted in this film, and each is distinguishable and unique. Can you tell that they’re CG? Yes, but it’s not a deal breaker.

There’s not much to the story besides the fact that a group of students discover trolls actually exist, but Troll Hunter is a fun film with awesome creature design. Definitely check it out if you’re in the mood for something different.

Verdict: 3.5/5
