Synopsis

Coming from a long line of fierce hunters, a shy young Finnish boy, Oskari, prepares himself to go on a dangerous expedition into the forest. Following a rite of passage on the eve of his 13th birthday, Oskari must spend a night alone in the woods and use his limited resources to fend for himself.

Beyond surviving the night, he must also return with a dead beast in tow in order to prove himself a man. With barely the strength to fire his bow, Oskari enters the woods with trepidation. But Oskari's night in the woods is about to take an unexpected turn…

As Oskari heads out into the forest, the U.S. President's plane begins its descent into Helsinki and is promptly alerted that it's the target of a missile. Escaping via the plane's safety pod, the President touches down in the abandoned forest, where Oskari discovers him.

Review

All the cliches are reunited with a teenager, the President of the USA, some terrorists in the same movie and you have not an original script. There are some beautiful landscapes with majestic mountain scenery, big skies and lush forestation. That's not to make up for the poor script but it allows to discover Finland. Kids will love this movie and all the action scene, it is the equivalent of 'The expendables' movie for them. I have the impression that Samuel L. Jackson plays in all movies every year! Actually he will be present in six movies in 2015. For sure, it will not be the movie of the year but it's a decent movie to spend a good time with your family.
