Zachery Ty Bryan,
A high energy, high concept, stylish action epic set in the Norse world sees a passionate young man transform into a brutal warrior as he travels the unforgiving British landscape in search of his long lost brother Hakan The Ferrocious who his people are relying on to restore order to their kingdom following the bloody death of their king.Written by
Let's get one thing straight: this is not an easy movie to digest! This does not subscribe the Hollywoodian pattern with happy ends and gratuitous nudity scenes. It's closer to Valhalla Rising than Pathfinder or any other viking movie.
The violence is omnipresent and presented normal, as it was a part of the vikings nature. The movie depicts an episode of the viking society, a trial a viking future leader must undertake before being recognized as such. A sort of choosing the right man for the right job if you want; the motive is present mostly in archaic societies. The quest begins with Price Steiner affirming his readiness to replace his father the king, now wounded. The rest is for you to see.
Who says this movie is boring or bad, did not understand it! How can killing your brothers, mother and friends can be boring? It has the recipe of a Greek poem. It simply lacks multimillion dollar budget and CGI effects, and may actors with meaner faces. :)
What I thought it was out of place? Well, first the title, it simply pushes the viewer to draw the conclusion the Nordic rationale society started at that time. The second thing that I felt it was pushed throughout the entire movie was Prince Steiner's lack of belief in the north gods and a promotion of logic.
