Valhalla Rising | Movie Review


My accelerated movie review of Vahalla Rising:
  • Brutality = 10
  • Storyline = 5.5
  • Plot = 4.5
  • Speed (flow) = 4
  • Dialogue + 4.5.
"One Eye" is a great character.

The movie was too slow but intriguing enough for me to watch it in its entirety.

The slow pace of VR does at times work well in building intensity.

Overall VR had great potential but the story was mismanaged - defectively directed by Nicolas Winding Refn.

However, I did like the tense contrast of Christianity (erection of crosses) vs. the elusive "primitives" and their marksmen stone-headed arrow archery (the stone-headed arrows rocked! (pun unintended))

If you're a videophile this movie should be somewhere in you queue. Image        Hosted by ImageShack.us
