Netflix's new disaster movie with perfect Rotten Tomatoes score is being called 'next Godzilla'

A new disaster movie which has released on Netflix is sitting pretty with a perfect critic response score from Rotten Tomatoes.

This is Netflix movie Troll, helmed by Tomb Raider (the recent one, not the Angelina Jolie one) director Roar Uthaug, which released onto the streaming service yesterday (1 December). Check out the trailer here:


It's been called the 'new Godzilla', though the king of monster movies isn't finished yet as the sequel to Godzilla vs Kong is in the works and there's a very good reason why audiences keep coming back for more.

Still, it's always important to have a bit of competition and variety in your disaster movies, and that's what Troll provides as it delves into Norwegian folklore to fish out a massive monster.

It's even better when the movie has picked up a 100 percent approval score from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, meaning they all liked it.

To be clear, this doesn't mean that Troll is the new Citizen Kane or anything like that as the Rotten Tomatoes score is a sign of how many critics liked it rather than an average of their actual review scores - for that you'd want to hop over to Metacritic.

However, it's always a good sign when all of the critics who saw a film give it a thumbs up as positive reviews across the board are nothing to be sniffed at.

While they said it had some 'cliché ridden moments' that held it back a bit, critics reckoned Troll was 'one of this years silliest, but best disaster films' that would 'please fans of giant creatures'.

If you're into movies that don't take themselves too seriously where big monsters smash things up then it definitely sounds like Troll is the sort of film you'd enjoy watching.

There was particular praise for the titular monster, which was described as a 'magnificent beast' that featured in some 'great action scenes' throughout the movie.

People who've seen it called Troll a 'good little film' with 'some of the best special effects you'll ever see', as well as praising the monster movie for having a 'ton of heart' to boot.

Most thought it was a 'pretty good movie' even if it never managed to be that rarest of things, a perfect disaster flick.

However, not everyone was the biggest fan of Troll as one person said they'll 'never have that hour and 44 minutes of my life back', while someone else said it was 'okay but it could've been SO MUCH BETTER'.

Troll is available to stream now on Netflix.
