Interesting animated short with unique style
5 August 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This animated short has a very unique style, a hybrid of 3D and cel shading that lends a idiosyncratic aesthetic to the whole affair.

The storyline is simple, an aged viking wants to get into Valhalla (or as they refer to it "Valhöll") so he has to die in battle.

Unfortunately it seems that it is more difficult to die in battle than one would expect.

The aged viking encounters a variety of characters on his adventure, many of whom seem to be more dangerous than they actually turn out to be. His desire to die gloriously in battle continues to elude him.

Humorous, with an enjoyable ending, this short is recommended!
