Entertaining and funny rendition based on the classic series of the 70s
13 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Amusing movie based on the successful German-Austrian cartoon series , here are correctly adapted on real images . Long ago, in a small Viking Village called Flake , a little boy named Wickie (Jonas Hammerle) lives a happy life with his parents . His daddy, Halvar (Waldemar Kobus), is the chief of the Vikings, and would have liked a son a little more valiant and less fearful . So, he and his bunch take Wickie along on their voyages to give him the experience he'll need to be an actual Viking. He usually accompanies his dad, and his warriors on their adventures and often is the young who uses his wit and instincts to help the friends in their times of need .Yet, somehow tribe's children end up trapped or hopelessly stuck somewhere and kidnapped by the nasty Sven (Gunther Kauffmann) and it's up to Wickie alone to help them out with his flashes of wit . Our friends Halvar , Snorre (Christian Koch) , Tjore , Urobe go out to rescue them on their ships , the Viking Drakkar, and Vickie aboard as stowaway.

This agreeable film contains amusing adventures , humor , emotion and is pretty entertaining . Not only did the story convey us to great and funny adventures, it also showed how to solve problems without the use of force. A likable Vickie , he is an ordinary viking boy, he is also not very strong but with his flashes of intelligence saves the day , helping the crew to resolve the numerous problems they suffer . The motion picture is well and originally directed by Michael Bully Herbig . He is an expert on parody based on known characters such as Karl May's ¨Winnitou¨ in the film titled ¨manitou's shoes (2001¨), the second feature movie he directed , became the most successful movie in Germany and Austria ever and ¨Sissi¨ in ¨Lissi and the Wild Emperor¨ and of course ¨Vickie¨ in this enjoyable film ¨ Vickie the Viking ¨ . Rating : 6,5 . Acceptable adventures film appointed for children and adolescents and ,of course, for vintage series fonds . Well worth seeing .
