Synopsis


Pioneer
A professional diver descends into the North Sea during the Norwegian oil boom of the early 1980s, only to find that the greatest danger to his life isn't exploring the depths of the ocean in this thriller inspired by actual events. Massive deposits of oil and gas have been discovered in the North Sea, and untold wealth awaits the first person who manages to extract them. Petter (Aksel Henne) and his brother are veteran divers with the skills to get the job done, but when Petter collapses during a dive, his brother perishes. Now, guilt-ridden and possibly brain damaged from the accident, Petter seeks to learn just who's calling the shots from behind the scenes. But the closer he gets to an answer, the more his life is in danger. Wes Bentley and Stephen Lang co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Pioneer is a thriller set in the early 80s right before the Norwegian oil boom. Two brothers who are expert divers who, obsessed in reaching the bottom of the Norwegian Sea when tragedy strikes and kills one of the bothers The surviving brother believes his brother's death was more than an accident. With each step he takes to uncover the truth of his brother's demise he places his life in tremendous danger. Pioneer is a solid film with great direction and strong lead cast. The only thing that may turn people away from this film is that the film is both in English and Norwegian. I suggest turning the captions on at the start of the film. The film has a few flaws and may move a little slow at times, but overall the film is a good international thriller. A four star performance and highly recommended for people who are enthusiasts for international thrillers and intrigued with Norwegian historical events.

    Always people have to die because big companies have hidden agendas. Another must see true story that not many people did not know about.
