However, it is not Will Ferrell who actually shines in the Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga , but Rachel McAdams who plays as a friend of Will's character . In fact, it is not uncommon for Will Ferrell to speak the American dialect, where he should have a typical Icelandic accent.
Even so, the story is actually interesting. Cliché, but also cute and sometimes funny. For a film that is more than two hours long, the Eurovision Song Contest feels too long for the story it has. The reason I get why this film is over two hours is because of how many side stories are included in the main story of the film but not all of them work. Another side story that extends the duration of the film but doesn't make the film better is when one of the top officials of the Icelandic national bank wants . It's a shame, because the Eurovision Song Contest could be an inspiring film.
What really grips the entire film is not the story or Will Ferrell , but Rachel McAdams who is able to subtly deliver the comedy in the film alone. His face that often feels confused and flat when the situation doesn't make sense is why he should do more comedy films. synchronized and inconsistent. I also became wondering when Will Ferrell last starred in a really funny film and I only remember The Other Guys , a film that was released 10 years ago.

They formed a band called Fire Saga to perform at the global Eurovision music event. Since childhood, Lars has dreamed of appearing at the annual music competition.
One day the Iceland committee was selecting representatives for their country. There is a singer who is suitable for representing Iceland, namely Katiana. Meanwhile, Victor Karlosson, governor of the Central Bank of Iceland refused. According to him, Katiana would have the potential to win and Iceland could not host Eurovision because there was no money.
Lars and Sigrit were supposed to be on the ship partying with the Icelandic candidates, but they broke away due to their unsuccessful performance.
