The young blacksmith Siegfried, who, not knowing that he is heir to a conquered kingdom, becomes popular with the Burgunds by slaying their bane, the dragon Fafnir. When the reward seems to be a huge treasure, Siegfried ignores the curse that lies on the hoard - which now seems to endanger his love to beautiful Norse warrior queen Brunhild.Written by

When Siegfried is fighting the two Saxon kings he is disarmed of his sword and shield, after being knocked to the ground he retrieves his sword, gets up, and a short piece of action ensues. The shot then changes and he suddenly has his shield for the closing seconds of the fight sequence. See more »

I've watched both parts and they entertained me very well. The second part was better, because the role of Kristanna Loken ("T3") was bigger and the fightscenes looked much better! This is a very good TV movie and Benno Fürmann ("The Order"), Max von Sydow ("Minority Report") and Alicia Witt ("Vanilla Sky") did a great job. Julian Sands ("Warlock") was very cool as the bad guy ;)
The story was different to the original German saga, but it was enjoyable. The effects were also very exciting for this budget! (23 Mio.)
First part: 6/10 Second part: 8/10
