Despite knowing that the Vikings' helmets didn't historically have large animal horns on them, the filmmakers decided to add them anyway. Modern audiences are used to thinking of Vikings with horns on their helmets, and it made them look more terrifying (evem if, in truth, they never wore them). See more »

Just switch your brain off and go along for the ride. Strictly clichéd, but lots of action. Everything way over the top. Colossal amounts of gore, lots of gross-outs and in some places it's too dark to really see what's going on (if you're a gross hound like me). Karl Urban strips down well and should get his kit off more often. The baddies are clearly defined (liked them speaking Icelandic, by the way) the goodies are appropriately unable to fight back and our hero does all the hard work. Didn't love it, and wouldn't go out of my way to watch it again, but it was alright. In the great scheme of things, I've seen a lot worse. I've seen a lot better too, but it's not as bad as some of these other comments have suggested. As I say, clichéd, no surprises and probably one I'd be happy to watch on TV.
