[on giving Magnus a viking funeral]
Let's start right now, working together as a pack. What would Magnus want if it were one of us, huh?
He would want one of us to throw flaming arrows at him.

As soon as I finished the movie, I went in here to see what people was saying about it. The reason for this, was that I really liked this movie and I don't know why. As I read on metacritic, I would agree it has all been seen and done before, but for some reason, this just felt right and believable. Especially one scene which seems to re-live childhood brotherly shenanigans (totally saw my brother and me back then - and some time we still do it ;) )
The viking angle was something I found enjoyable, perhaps because I'm a dane - I don't know. But what he said, could have been said by friend of mine who practice Asa-faith (The believe of the vikings).
To sum it up; Good movie. Been done before but somehow, this one is different.
