Honestly, it was a Viking film. It portrayed rather accurate depiction of a time when it Vikings ruled the Nordic region, therefore however grotesque the violence was, I would say it is accurate to the time.
Of course I will watch anything with Anya Taylor-Joy, and any of the Skarsgård family. This was definitely an all star cast with a lot of fun surprise appearances and there was strong characterization throughout.
I do believe that about 30 minutes of the movie could have been cut and it definitely could’ve benefited from a little bit faster pace.
Overall, I would say I was entertained, even though I did end up checking my watch a few times to see how much longer I would have to endure.
