Plot Outline:

One Eye is a mute warrior with inhuman strength, held captive by a Norse tribe and forced to fight until a slave named Are sets him free. After slaying his captors, the two find themselves on a Viking vessel that soon becomes entangled in fog - when the fog lifts revealing an unknown land - a dangerous land - where One Eye may finally learn his true purpose. -- Chris Kavan

The plot and characterizations were almost nonexistant, but the visuals were glorious -- from mountains and mists down to Mads Mikkelsen's incredible face. Good enough for me.

Not a lot of talking here - just violence and a journey to... somewhere - look, the plot here isn't the issue - watch for the grit and scenery. It's something different - I can't say "good" per se, but offers something beyond a typical film.

Nach dem Abspann des Epos, hätte ich Refn am liebsten dafür gedankt, wie er gän...

"Valhalla Rising" by Yojimbo

An escaped warrior slave and a group of religious zealots seeking the holy land find themselves in unfamiliar territory when their ship loses its way in fog. Director Nicolas Winding Refn, responsible for the decent if somewhat cold and uninvolving Pusher trilogy, here enters Viking territory in this tale of strangers in a strange land. As an indicator of just how pretentious this film is, lead actor Mads Mikkelsen does not utter one syllable during the entire length of the film, Refn instead telling the "story" through endless shots of desolate landscapes shot through high contrast filters, men with beards staring into the distance and occasionally mud wrestling. Apart from the brief spurts of savage violence, absolutely nothing happens in this film. A few extras from Braveheart wander a...
