The Vikings

11 months ago at Nov 25 5:18
Richard Fleischer’s The Vikings has all the surface beauty of a glorious painting. As it should, given that masterful cinematographer Jack Cardiff was responsible for illuminating the fjords, the battle scenes, and burly he-man populating the frame. The Vikings is painted with light, to appropriate the title from a documentary about his work on Black Narcissus, and it’s a pity that the story i... read more

I already saw this movie but it was such a long time ago, I have to admit that I actually didn’t remember anything about the damned thing so I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch and I can imagine that it must have been on Kirk Douglas’s bucket list. Eventually, Douglas Senior was actually pretty good here and he managed  to deliv... read more

Einar and Eric are two Viking half-brothers. The former is a great warrior whilst the other is an ex-slave, but neither knows the true identity of the other. When the throne of Northumbria in Britain becomes free for the taking, the two brothers compete against one another for the prize, but they have very different motives - both involving the princess Morgana, however.

"Really liked the fact that some scenes were shot outside, but other than that, the moves wasn't that great. "

"Pöhöttyneen Hollywoodin kuolinpihinöissä viriteltiin viikkareistakin peplumia. Kirk Douglas tekee mitä parhaiten osaa eli näyttelee mulkkua, Tony Curtis mitä huonoiten osaa eli näyttelee machoa toimintasankaria. Juoni ei kiinnosta edes vähää alusta, mutta vuonojen ja Ernest Borgninen mahti pitää kitsaasti kituvan kiinnostuksen kytemässä. Tykkäsin toimintakohtauksesta, jossa linnaketta vallatessaan Kirk Douglas hyppää roikkumaan vallihaudan päälle"

"25.7.2020 The Viking Age isn't the most common subject for Hollywood films so at least the basic idea behind "The Vikings" is fascinating. The generic story offers no surprises. It's just that tired old story about two men who fall in love with a same woman. The story isn't especially bad though either and the settings and environments in the film are surprisingly authentic and quite impressive. Fleischer was clearly at his best when he was directing action scenes. Drama was never his strongest"

“I already saw this movie but it was such a long time ago, I have to admit that I actually didn’t remember anything about the damned thing so I thought I might as well check it out again. Well, eventually, it turned out to be a decent watch and I can imagine that it must have been on Kirk Douglas’s bucket list. Eventually, Douglas Senior was actually pretty good here and he managed  to delivered a solid and entertaining performance, even if the guy was almost twice older than his character was obviously supposed to be. With Tony Curtis, however, I’m afraid I wasn’t convinced though and it was always pretty obvious that I was watching a Hollywood star pretending to be a slave. Concerning the story itself, I thought it was rather odd that they spent at least half of the running tim” read more

“Richard Fleischer’s The Vikings has all the surface beauty of a glorious painting. As it should, given that masterful cinematographer Jack Cardiff was responsible for illuminating the fjords, the battle scenes, and burly he-man populating the frame. The Vikings is painted with light, to appropriate the title from a documentary about his work on Black Narcissus, and it’s a pity that the story isn’t up to the power and mystery of the images.   There’s a grandeur and heft to the film’s visual splendor that just isn’t met by a script that is purple prose through and through. There are two half-brothers, each unaware of their shared lineage, that war with each other over everything, including a virginal princess, and a barrel-chested king that spends much of his time soused on al” read more
