Kievan Rus, late 10th century. After the death of his father, Svyatoslav I, ruler of Kievan Rus, the young Viking prince Vladimir of Novgorod (Danila Kozlovsky) is forced into exile across the frozen sea to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov), who has murdered his other brother Oleg (Kirill Pletnyov) and conquered the Viking territory of Kievan Rus. The old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) convinces Vladimir to assemble a Varangian armada, hoping to reconquer Novgorod from Yaropolk and ultimately face the mighty Byzantine forces.

Amazing movie
10 January 2017 | by (Pancevo - Serbia) – See all my reviews

Knez Vladimir is grandfather is first ruler of city Novgorod(North Russia) called Rurik.Rurik is born in Norway like real viking. Vladimir is been 3 years in egzile in Norway his fathers lands,after that his bring with him real vikings to liberate his country. In Russia viking is Varangians ,after this mission off course for big money , Varangians (vikings)go to south in city Constatinopol(Bysanthia) to serve his emperor also for big money and served very well(Byzantine Varangian Guard). Do you see the sword of Vladimir initials is been from East Roman Empire(Bhysantia).Slavik people is been in big influence of Viking culture and Orthodox religion coming from Bhysantia and Greece. In Scandinavian countries have name Vladmar, in Rus Vladimir. I blamed Russian people for bad reviews of movie, this people is blind 15 years ago this people he had only one type of yogurt. now have much much better life and started have behavior like mad dogs. For him shitty movie Assassins Creed is better, i think this nation in last time going on modern stupidity. Bravo director Andrey Kravchuk and actor Danila Kozlovsky. People must see this masterpiece
