The Northman

The Northman ★★★★

Walhalla lives - the Vikings are back! One of my most anticipated pics of 2022 and I wasn't disappointed - or was I?

First of all, it's one of the historical most accurate and yet also most beautiful shot movies I've ever seen! But with all those accuracy comes my first point: I really would've wanted to see a little bit more of the northern mythology which actually makes the whole viking subject so fascinating. Then I had the feeling that the story was held to straight ahead which made it in my eyes a little bit to repetative in some moments.

I really liked the whole cast - you really don't want to meet Alex Skarsgård when he's outta fury, believe me! But: the figure of Fjølnir could've get more screen time like he actually got here - really liked his presence here!

To round up it's still a great movie - but with it's little weaknesses I cannot fade out.
