Parallel to the sabotage that’s unfolding, the film shows flashbacks showing how and why this unusual crew of activists chose to resort to these controversial means to fight climate change. In this way, the film provides absorbing and highly believable character studies.

There is a Scandinavian connection too, as Norwegian actress Kristine Frøseth plays one of the lead roles, and How to Blow Up a Pipeline is loosely based on the book of the same name by Swedish academic Andreas Malm. Conjuring up an action-packed thriller out of a book on political theory may sound like an impossible task, but director Daniel Goldhaber has delivered the goods, making one of the best heist films in years.
