Historical Viking movie. Lasting impression.
4 December 2008 | by fhilO65See all my reviews

I saw this movie theatrically in Karup bio. it left a lasting impression.

I think some of the negative reviews must come from people who took this movie far too seriously.

it was filmed in 2 weeks only, from reading about this project. the producer performed nothing short of a miracle. a film takes months to do. So lets give them that credit.

What we have here is good, old-fashioned film-making style--the actors knew it--the director knew it--so lighten up, and enjoy this exciting adventure.

I'm sure that Gantzler and Vedsegaard realized that they were not going to win Oscars for this movie--but sometimes even the best actors like to do things that are fun !. Mr. Vedsegaard must have had a ball, wearing an outlandish wig, as they wore in the classic movie "the long ship".

Movie buffs will see many familiar faces in this one, although--in a number of cases--they may not be so apparent at first. Terrific character actor, Erik Holmey , and beautiful belly dancers --.

Anyway--for history scholars and lovers of authenticity--enjoy. this movie is for us who like pure entertainment, "an exciting voyage !
