Storyline

Kievan Rus, late 10th century. After the death of his father, Svyatoslav I, ruler of Kievan Rus, the young Viking prince Vladimir of Novgorod (Danila Kozlovsky) is forced into exile across the frozen sea to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov), who has murdered his other brother Oleg (Kirill Pletnyov) and conquered the Viking territory of Kievan Rus. The old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) convinces Vladimir to assemble a Varangian armada, hoping to reconquer Novgorod from Yaropolk and ultimately face the mighty Byzantine forces.

Epic Master Piece
11 April 2017 | by kippr_howardSee all my reviews

This film is stunning! Not sure why there are so many negative reviews on this epic undertaking. As far as Viking movies goes, this is the best i've seen. The cinematography is epic, beautiful, and gives the film a fantastic vibe. The sets and costumes are wonderful and well crafted! The music is a perfect fit. I watched this in full Russian language first, without knowing what they were saying, and i still was able to follow the story and enjoy it thoroughly! I wish more films were made like this! 10 out of 10 for sure!!!! This is an excellent film! Well crafted, acted, shot! More movies NEED to be done at this level. Wonderful!-Kipp
