Valhalla Rising (2009)

20 July 2010 12:50 PM, PDT | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Directed by: Nicolas Winding Refn

Written by: Roy Jacobsen, Nicolas Winding Refn

Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Maarten Stevenson, Gordon Brown, Andrew Flanagan, Gary Lewis, Gary McCormack, Alexander Morton, Jamie Sives

The world of Vikings isn't necessarily new to film, but it is one that is often misrepresented. Say "Viking" and the listener will immediately conjure up images of giant men in armor and bull-horned helmets. The image won't go much further than that as the old Nordic raiders aren't typically given any depth or real character beyond smashing things with clubs and axes. This is what makes a film such as Valhalla Rising such an unexpected joy; a profoundly artistic story of the travels of a somber mute warrior named One-Eye, caught at the brink of the Christian crusades.

As the story opens, One-Eye is a slave. His uses are limited due to his complete savagery and uncanny knack for killing, »

Indie Film Focus: 'Valhalla Rising' gets to theaters soon. Mads Mikkelson starrer intriguing.

7 July 2010 3:48 AM, PDT | Upcoming-Movies.com | See recent Upcoming-Movies.com news »

The talented Mads Mikkelson stars in IFC Films' "Valhalla Rising," an action adventure helmed by the very capable Nicholas Winding Refn. It's a very limited release and opens at the IFC Center on July 16th, but worthy of exploration, I'm sure. Refn, who impressed with his work on "Bronson," directs as well as writing alongside Roy Jacobson. Also in the cast are Jamie Sives, Gary Lewis, Ewan Stewart, Alexander Morton, Callum Mitchell, Andrew Flanagan and Maarten Stevenson. For years, the fearsome figure known only as One Eye (Mads Mikkelsen) has defeated everyone he's encountered, but he's treated more like an animal than a warrior. The only person he has any relationship with is the young boy who brings him food and water daily. Constantly caged and shackled, One Eye has drawn the attention of a new force now sweeping the countryside and displacing the society's leaders: Christians. »

Competition: Valhalla Rising – DVD Competition

15 May 2010 12:29 PM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

This is a competition for Valhalla Rising directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring Mads Mikkelsen, Gary Lewis, Jamie Sives, Ewan Stewart, Alexander Morton, Callum Mitchell, Andrew Flanagan and Douglas Russell. From the producers of The Football Factory and the director of the critically acclaimed Pusher trilogy and controversial biopic Bronson, Nicolas Winding Refn's film depicts the unflinching violence and uncompromising brutality of the Viking Age period. Countering this harshness are the intense and thought provoking themes that raise the bar to what the director calls "science fiction for the mind". Valhalla Rising is visually stunning and contains an atmosphere that echoes Wrath of God and Apocalypse Now. »
