Well, I began watching this movie because hey, it sounded like fun. And it was. There was some great "13th Warrior" style action, complete with all the gore you would expect from a movie involving Vikings. I was happy to see First Nations Peoples fighting back – maybe it wasn't quite the movie I'd like to see (Custer's Last Stand, or any other battle where white conquerors got their comeuppance), but hey, at least they were fighting back.The art direction was great for a movie that clearly didn't the huge budget of most blockbusters. And I really liked the reinterpretation of Viking costume – they looked VERY cool.But here's the thing. A little way into the film, I realized that this is yet another film where a group of "noble savages" are only saved by the ingenious plans and warlike skills of someone of European descent. This is just another "Dances With Wolves," "Last of the Mohicans," and even "Little Big Man,&#…
It all looks artificial, I think most of the outdoor scene surroundings were CGI. The plot, script or whatever u call it is very poor, weakly thought through. The "Vikings" come as cartoonish almost, one dimensional brutes, carrying almost all the time ridiculous helmets. And they all seem much bigger than the Indians, even the white "Indian" who is one of them. The biggest disappointment was the fighting scenes, poorly edited and shot. The entire premise of the Vikings insisting on chasing the Indians who fled from one village even across the mountain ridge and away from the seacoast is so ridiculous it indicates the director is a pretty dumb person and thinks the same about his audience. And this is yet another film when the native Indians come across as some fantastically interesting, deep, spiritual, polite and likable people. In fact maybe James Cameron watched this film a few times too many. This script is similar but even worse than Avatar's.
I have searched, but cannot locate the comment from a Swedish reviewer who posted on this film.Have I missed it, or was it censored from the site?QUOTE:As a Swede and proud of my heritage, I find this movie highly offensive. We, and our fellow brothers of Norway, are portrayed as savage brutes who give little or no respect to the native tribes in pre-America … It came to the point where I felt personally targeted against as a 'Man from the North' and left the theater. I urge you to boycott this outright racist movie. Yes, racist, to play on these prejudices is ****ing racist.
