At last, an attempt at saga accuracy
25 July 2003 | by kveldulf1See all my reviews

One of the few films to actually try to be faitfhul to the actual Icelandic sagas, this film is a treat for those actually interested in such tales. That it is filmed in the relevant locales, with appropriate numbers (a local chief's following of 7-10 men, not thousands) and so forth all lend extra verisimilitude to the film. It is true that the melding of the elements from various sagas is a might uneven, as is the acting, and the viewer must pay attention to keep the storyline straight (unless they also have a grounding in the source material). But still it is a welcome entry in the filmography of the Norseman, with just about the only half-way accurate portrayal of these people, as well as correcting the filmmaking community's neglect of these rousing tales.
