Harry Potter's Ron Weasley, Rupert Grint, is the only real "name" actor in this decent Scandinavia-set war film. The action begins with two planes shooting each other down over Norway in 1940. Three Germans survive, as do two Brits, and all five are forced to set their differences aside when they find themselves sharing the same hunter's cabin, which provides the only shelter from the harsh Norwegian winter. The film is long on words, a little light on action and occasionally succumbs to corn and cliché. Ploughing much the same camaraderie-through-crisis furrow as Hell in the Pacific and Enemy Mine, this is clearly breaking no new ground. But it does what it does with some skill and likeability.
