User Reviews

 
Excellent animation
29 June 2019 | by andbmetSee all my reviews

Highly recommended for those interested in Nordic mythology properly presented to a wider audience.

What a wonderful find, came here after following the cue on Myrkur's song "Jeg er Guden, I er Tjenerne".

And as opposed to what the bad reviews say I have not seen this movie as a child (this is the first time ever) and I am not Danish either (unfortunately, although it is great for learning, look for versions with English subtitles).

Those that gave a bad review to this are just expecting a Hollywood expendable series of Marvel/Thor/Avengers movie nonsense with endless special effects, action faster than any human eye can follow, no plot and the all too commonplace political correctness extremism (read witch hunt) of our dumbified herd society.

Have fun watching this movie with the perspective of going on an adventure as an adult or as a child (or both).
