    It's as if we placed the protagonist of Valhalla Rising (2009) in WWII Finland and he gave himself the mission of delivering one hundred pounds of gold to a bank 500 miles away through a troop of Nazis. There's no moral quandary here: killing Nazis is shown as comedic enjoyment & complete justice for the audience. Overall, the acting, sound, visuals and intensity are well blended together to make this an entertaining film. I appreciated the dog, too.

    And to approach Viccc's comment: the Finnish and Nazis weren't full allies. They were more like frenemies of convenience against the Soviets. This movie takes place during the Lapland War. This is seven months (1944 to 1945) when the Finnish expulsed the Nazis from Northern Finland based on an armistice agreement with the Soviets. All said, Finland wanted no one in their country except the Finnish. Also, Finnish and Nazi ideology didn't overlap and the two were never formal allies. Finland fought so hard to keep the Soviets out (yes, with some Nazi help), and when the Finnish brokered peace with the Soviets, then the Finnish worked to push the Nazis out, too. The Nazis made an organized withdrawal from Northern Finland into Northern Norway, and they lost a small amount of forces during this withdrawal, aka the Lapland War. I hope this isn't confusing. I'm sorry that I'm not a better history teacher. Read about it on your own. Thank you.
