THE WAVE is a Norwegian disaster drama in which a geologist has to fight against the forces of nature to rescue his family.

Threat

There are scenes of strong threat as a tsunami overwhelms a town. Characters are thrown around inside a car as the water sweeps the vehicle away and others are chased by a wall of water down long corridors. These scenes of threat are intense and extended.

There are also scenes showing the aftermath of the natural disaster with bodies left lying around in ruined buildings and cars. One man finds a bus full of dead bodies still strapped in their seats, including a young child.

Other issues include a single use of strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes uses of 'shit', 'screwed' and 'dammit'.

There are some scenes of violence including a man being held underwater to stop him attacking another man.
