Second part of Fritz Lang's Die Nibelungen is a major step down from the previous part. In this segment (as the title says), Kriemhild seeks revenge for the death of her husband. This part of the film runs 146-minutes, which brings the total running time just under five hours and I've gotta wonder why on Earth it would take this long to tell a story. The first part was actually fairly interesting due to a good leading character as well as several memorable scenes including the infamous fight with a dragon and the bathing in its blood. This part just goes on and on and on without any real excitement until the very end of the movie. Another major problem is that the actress (Margarete Schoen) is downright boring and hard to watch. The amazing set design and costumes are on full display again, which makes it worth watching the entire film for.
