4.5 SOMETIMES STUNNING,MOSTLY DULL. HONESTBAZ | 24/10/2012 | See all HONESTBAZ's reviews (299) This one of those movies some will view as genius and others will view as dull and pointless,it did bore me,but i appreciated it.A viking escapes his captors in brutal style and has a young boy following him,then upon a ship with other men who aren't sure what to make of him,this threatening mist comes about,just where are they heading?It sounds great in theory,but it is a very slow movie with some brutal fight scenes. Very little is said,i guess because the music and visuals say so much,but it can really drag when nothing is said and it's just men sat around waiting for something to happen.I fully understand now why some hate this movie so much,but with some truely stunning visuals such as a vivid blue sky shining above a land of brutality,this does offer something for those who like something different. The music does have a perpetual menace to it,as does the whole feel,but i would argue that it doesn't quite work and the end left me disappointed. It's not awful,it's just a challenge for some to get through.
