Despite Ivarsson's claim that the vikings speak old Norse, they actually speak modern Scandinavian. The vikings are played by Norwegian and Swedish actors who speak their native language. For instance, the Godi and Freya are Swedish; Freya's father and others are Norwegian. See more »

who needs CGI when you have a totally enjoyable story?
this movie is corny, sure. but it's fantastic. the story is about a man who hires another man to go with him in a giant zeppelin to find his son who was lost on an expedition to the north pole. the adventure doesn't end, ever. it's nonstop action and the color is amazing and the special effects, though dated, are very good simply because the story is good, as is the acting. who needs CGI when you have a good story? it's a fantastic little epic and although unrealistic this is pure jules vernish fun (jules didn't write it but it's his style) and totally enjoyable. i won't give away what is found or how things turn out - but let me just say that you'll have a terrific time watching this movie, especially with your kids, or niece, nephew, cousin, or just some kiddo you happen to be babysitting. this is pure imaginative fun!!!
