Artistic and well worth the 82 minute experience.
21 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now this is good independent cinema considering it was extremely low budget and shot in only 2 weeks!!! wow!.

I went to the First Take Film Fest and watched several films. But this one stood out from the crowd.

A VIKING movie done by an independent producer and from my research this fellow wrote directed and produced this by himself with his own money.

It was well put together, acting and direction were good, and music score simply AMAZING and on par with any major "hollywood" score.

And it was edited in an abstract but intriguing way so you had to pay attention or possibly get a little lost. very sneaky idea and it made it more mysterious.

And there was a superb viking battle very well done with some special effects only done by major studios. The audio ( which in Indy films tend to be mediocre at best,) was perfect.

Overall very good.

for an self produced Indy film: EXCELLENT.

watch out Hollywood the"low budget" vikings are coming.!!!
