  • Summary: I'm pretty hard on movies in general. I watched it 4 times, and loved it more each time. The grit, the pacing, the plot twists. It is kick ass good. Such boldness, such warrior resolve. Beautiful.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I first watched "Valhalla Rising" on Netflix. I came across it while browsing the Foreign Films genre and I thought the cover looked cool, plus the small description sounded interesting.

  • Summary: I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. Given the (admittedly terrible) title, I expected a mindless actionfest with blood, guts, and plenty of Viking action. Instead, I got a moody little gem that didn't sacrifice action for art.

  • Summary: One of the best movies i've seen. A complex and relaxing masterpiece, with a great ambience and great music. Mads Mikkelsen does a great performance, and the ending is beautiful. Pure cinema.

  • Summary: One of the best films I have ever, ever watched. The lack of dialogue gives much time for you to immerse yourself into a dreamlike sequence and let your mind ponder on what is occurring. Very abstract, very different, VERY visually compelling, and the acting was top notch.

  • Summary: Nicholas Winding Refn's "Valhalla Rising" is quite, suspenseful, profound, and powerful. Its a movie strongly for the sophisticated audiences due to its silent dialogue and mind blowing scenes. I actually liked the smart director for providing us such viking movie in a time of explosions and guns.

  • Excerpt: I am not enthralled by the movie overall but decided it was worth owning it previously viewed mainly for the imagery which is definitely outstanding for the most part. The visuals are heavily manipulated and the scenery is gorgeous.

Refn Rising

  • Excerpt: With the Pusher trilogy, Bronson and Valhalla Rising, Nicholas Winding Refn has proven himself to be one of the most interesting artistic filmmakers working today. There's a vicious brutality to his films which recalls Gasper Noe & Lars Von Trier at their best.
