What is it about ?

Here is the official plot synopsis for Struck down:

“Blasted” follows childhood friends Sebastian (Axel Bøyum) and Mikkel (Fredrik Skogsrud), who are reunited for Sebastian’s bachelor party. While Mikkel never matured from a teenage laser tag prodigy, Sebastian has become a career-obsessed workaholic who uses the party to flirt with a potential client. But when the bachelor party falls headlong into an alien invasion, it’s up to Mikkel and Sebastian to reunite as the laser tag duo they once were and fight back.

According to the synopsis, this film seeks to combine two completely different subgenres (buddy comedy and alien invasion) to create something as engaging as it is unique.

“It’s very exciting to be the first Norwegian sci-fi comedy in production. We feel very privileged to work with Netflix and make a film in such an unorthodox genre. Emanuel Nordrum and Martin Sofiedal have created a story amazing where we finally get some clarity on the light phenomenon in Hessdalen.
