Reviews about Vikings
The Vikings is spectacular, rousing and colorful.
It is the best advertisement for beer-drinking since the breweries put wrestling on TV.
Plenty of pillaging, axe-throwing, hearty quaffing of ale, storming of castles, heroic jumping into wolf pits, and manly talk about the glories of entering Valhalla with sword in hand.
The real stars are the production people
Directed with brawn over brain by Richard Fleischer.
Fighting he-men and their war ships
Pretty good actioner with star power.
Highly entertaining and slightly camp historical adventure full of great stunts, larger-than-life characters and splendidly OTT dialogue.
As the massive battle scenes and convoluted political machinations paraded across the screen, I thought, "This was the Braveheart of the 1950s!" and I was right.
