Vikings tripping in the New World
Not unenjoyable if you like grit (but there should've been steam from the entrails), this film is diminished by its sense of its own importance. Some attractive shots. Violent-ish but not the kind that bothers me - YMMV. Raises portentiousness to 11 at minute one and remains there all the way through.*
* It reminded me of Fight Club, at which I laughed all the way through. FC seemed like it was a distillation of manly-man wannabee pipe dreams that revealed more than the adherents bargained for, i.e. it was ridiculous and so are they revealed to be.
