This is a decent if not great Finnish action movie. Attack on Finland is set on Finnish Independence Day, and the epic scope of the first half hour or so is reminiscent of other epic action movies, and even disaster movies from the 1970s, as every major character is introduced and explained. It takes a while to get to the titular attack on Finland, and after that, it's the proverbial "tense hostage situation" we've seen in other action movies before it gets interesting.

Despite the slow pace of the beginning, and a reliance on action movie cliches in both characters and action, the movie does go in some unexpected directions. Most of the good and bad characters are developed more than in the typical action movie, and there is a payoff to all of this. Even with these unusual story twists, though, it's still a pretty standard action movie.
