This movie was just getting mediocre reviews (it had only been out for a day) when I decided to see it. I think I know why and I’m going to disagree with them. This film is about Norse legend and mythology, no less and no more. It is a bleak tale about a bleak period where honour was defined by vengeance and brutality was its bi-product. Our culture is not use to straight up Homer-esk tales of heroes and gods. Our culture likes its mythical heroes to be served with humour and wisecracks. This treatment is in dark contrast to that. It is, however, beautifully crafted. The locations are stunning in their natural beauty. The cinematography is intentional and captivating. The action sequences and the CGI are painstakingly real and truly brutal. The performances are faithful to the culture they inhabit. As is my custom, I did a quick exit poll of others leaving the theatre with me. The three people I spoke to each gave it a 9 out of 10. Nothing mediocre about those ratings. I agree and give this film a 9 (beautifully crafted) out of 10. [Heroic Mythology]

"I will avenge you, Father! I will save you, Mother! I will kill you, Fjölnir!" Even though the Northman felt a little bit long it never bored me. The soundtrack, the visuals, Alexander Skarsgård performance as Amleth, Willem Dafoe is always a treat, the final fight near all the lava and I just love the viking mythology. Robert Eggers third film is another unique one and I just can't wait see what he has in store next. The Northman also showed me that I would like to see Alexander Skarsgård in more films. But I also realize if I would've watched this with some friends they won't think of it as highly as I do. I think the Northman is more a film for people who are really into movies. Maybe it could be one that offers them another experience and show them what movies can be. Maybe that will be an idea for when I get this on blu-ray. Watch it with some friends who usually watch Marvel or big action blockbusters and ask them what they think of it. I wonder...

A bloody, epic, dark Viking saga. A look into a character who has lost his way despite their oath. A tale of trying to escape or fulfill ones fate and just how deeply entwined the spiritual was for people off this age. Hooked me for the full runtime, the story is simple but this let's the deep dive into the mysticism play out all the better. Other reviews here are simply wrong, its like they're reviewing something they expected to be Fast and Furious Vikings Edition. Eggers hits a perfect 3 movies for his directoral entry with The Witch, The Lighthouse and The Northman. Probably his most watchable for general audiences this really shouldn't be missed, the score is guttural, otherworldly and raw. The cinematography is sublime. The acting and character depth makes this feel all the more satisfying at it's climax. 9/10

If you're expecting two hours of battle action you will be very disappointed, but honestly if you've seen any other Robert Eggers movie by now you should have known better than to expect this. But, of course this may be the first movie you'll be watching from Eggers, so in any case be prepared for a slow ride. For me, one of the best aspects of the movie was how well Eggers handed the "magic" aspect, it almost becomes pure fantasy at times, to immerse the watcher in the beliefs of the norse myhology the people had at that time, but you could also think of them as products of an active unconsciuos fuled by psychotics sometimes, or by the simple belief in that mithology. The script being not only about revenge was a bonus for me.

"The Northman" is very impressive, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's especially good. It's visceral. It may be very very historically accurate, by today's lights. The battle choreography is estimable, shot in long takes with little editing. A number of excellent actors do a lot of really fine w More

It took me a little while to get into it, but by its conclusion 'The Northman' had fully entertained me. Great film!

First and foremost, I'm delighted that I did indeed enjoy this film as my only previous experience of director Robert Eggers was the - in my opinion, and apparently my opinion only More

This is really well directed, there’s some great filmmaking in it, and the action in particular is very well shot and framed.
Also, the acting and score are pretty solid for the most part.
But, ultimately it’s all in service of a film with uninteresting and flat characters, and a story that’ More

**So so so so bad. Spare yourself.**

“I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!” I keep reading all these reviews that claim this movie is gruesomely violent, action-packed, and well-paced. Did we see the same movie? This movie was the furthest from those three things! The Northam is dreadfully s More
