A ferocious, epic Viking tale that is beautifully brutal.
You have to appreciate director Edgar Wright’s sheer ambition, but watching this highly stylized film is an arduous undertaking.
If you’re a disinterested teen looking for some mild, gore-less action and pubescent angst, this may be just what the doctor ordered.
A long-winded, thinly-premised, half-baked mess of a movie. I cannot think of one positive thing to say about this film.
The majority of this film is pretty fantastic. Too bad the director had to go and nearly spoil it all with a tacked on, irrelevant epilogue.
The movie’s potential is mostly wasted, but it’s fun to watch McAvoy go full-on camp as a dude suffering from two dozen personalities.
