as original as it is epic
15 August 2009 | by outfitboySee all my reviews

It is nearly impossible to achieve the epic natural scope and primordial realism of Severed Ways without a massive budget, limitless location potential, heavy machinery (as in 'copters and cranes), and unimaginable set builds. What has been achieved here by a small team of independent filmmakers is truly above and beyond in both cinematic beauty and raw yet researched realism. This film immediately transports you into it's fantastical yet wholly natural world via the empathy one feels for the very real plight of the 2 highly believable Viking characters lost in the new world. In a second achievement of the seemingly impossible Tony Stone manages to fuse together the much hinted at and referenced viking/metal association in popular culture in a majestic and seamless way. This incredible and fitting soundtrack supports the rough epic grandeur of two characters from a lost culture struggling to survive while lost in a new world. Random encounters with forest dwelling Jesuit monks and First Nation warriors add depth to the Vikings search for understanding in their fight to survive. From the epic triumphs of enduring spirit to the sometimes comical/playful details of the human experience this movie sails the metal churned seas with grace and depth.
