Storyline

700 AD. Northern Europe is divided into two worlds: the Frisians, Saxons and Danes live above the rivers, below the rivers live the Franks. They want to achieve what even the Romans did not succeed: conquer all of Europe. They put in a new weapon to enslave the Gentiles: Christianity. They target Europe's main trading center, where the Frisian king Aldigisl rules. Written by ahmetkozan

Trivia

The Friesian king Redbad/Radboud portrayed in this film is not to be confused with the catholic Saint Radbod/Radboud, bishop of Utrecht as well as namesake of many catholic institutions (such as the hospital and university of the Dutch city of Nijmegen). Saint Radbod was probably named after his ancestor, king Redbad, but he was born more than a hundred years later. See more »

Goofs

While now in the center of the Netherlands, Dorestad was much closer to the North Sea coast in the era of the film, and was subject to both seasonal flooding from the Rhine river system, as well as potential catastrophic marine inundation from the west over the vast tidal salt flats to the west.

Red-Bad script
3 January 2019 | by wilcovonkSee all my reviews

Had high expectations but the script ruined it. Acting wasn't too bad but because of the script it seemed funny some times. However the scenery and costumes were great.Overall a missed opportunity to make it a classic.
