The Third Part In The Vikings Trilogy Is an Absolute Masterpiece
12 October 2011 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

I have been searching for this movie for several years. After two first parts, The Raven Flies and The Shadow Of The Raven, my anticipation was immense. I was eager to watch the final part, and I was rewarded. Hrafn Gunnlaugsson is a real underrated Genius of Icelandic movie industry and he managed to make three breathtaking films that leave you spellbound and in awe. This third part tells of the year 999, when the Norwegian king Harald was busy baptizing Iceland and Norway. The movie is a shockingly realistic portrait of the times, with mud and rains, dirt and blood, unbelievable superstitions and awkward views. The story revolved around a your couple, and also tells about the violent and clumsy attempts of spreading the Gospel in those lands. The breathtaking Norwegian and Icelandic landscapes add to the sheer magnificence of the film and also the excellent play of all actors make this film a real must see
