Splash of the prod (web)
29 May 2013 | by (PariS) – See all my reviews

I watched it on the web because Norse mythology was among the leftover from my art studies. In addition to this episode, i watched also the one about "Beowulf" because it's the same thematic, even if the latter is the first literary work in English.

This show is just awful: if the commentary is rather precise and instructive, the visual are terrible: it's like a huge video, with no direction, only a collage of quick shots. The real cast is just there to do pantomimes (they never speak) and the production and above all, the special effects, are cheap!

Finally, the episodes are what the show is called: a clash. It could have been the wrestling at the times of Dark Ages as it's dramatized violence! As I have said in my previous trips of world mythology, each civilization has traits that are enduring: Here, i recall the need of a leader and that bravery comes from fighting.

For Tolkien lovers, this mythology is also the roots of his Middle-Earth as it's the one who invented giants, elves and dwarfs.
