The Northman

The Northman ★★★

The Northman cannot even touch THE 13TH WARRIOR, VALHALLA RISING or VIKINGS (the series).

After a good first act it slows down way too much.
It completely misses the epicness a Viking tale should have. Instead we got a very simple revenge story with a little twist you could see coming for miles.

The two movies Robert Eggers made before this were memorable masterpieces, cannot say this at all about The Northman which makes it quite a disappointment for me.

Still it is a fairly decent film because the cinematography and the score are flawless but it is far too long for the little it has to tell.

With a lot of goodwill I will grant it three stars.

Valhalla is reserved for Ragnar Lothbrock and Floki!!!
