Sometimes, that’s all there is to it.
Of course, a lot is true: the Vikings conquered England. King Æthelred carried out the ethnic cleansing of Norse men. Uppsala is a historical place. Harald Hardrad and Olaf the Holy were half-brothers. Leif Erikson was in Norway and has a half-sister Frodis.
All of them were well above the average number of people on the boats.
The rest of the series is pretty much the same Accurate historical experience like Vladimir Putin. Leif Erickson (Sam Corlette) is no curious sailor, more interested in winning land than searching for Vinland. Sister Frøydis (Frida Gustavsson) is a strong woman with a remarkable motive for revenge.
Saint Olaf (Johannes Höcker Johanssons) is a bloodthirsty, sword-wielding fool who has received the gospel message that anyone who does not believe in Jesus will perish. His only ambition is to help destroy himself. His brother Harald Hardrady (Leo Sutter), who likes to ask before he kills, thinks Olaf isn’t that impressive.
This may well be true.
In general, things happen that never happened. Sometimes the spelling “Vikings” is more historically correct than thisfor those who think a family can learn something from their gluttony with vikingkitch.
For those who have loved ‘Vikings’, it’s still a welcome encounter, although the spirit that was on the History Channel was completely absent here at the end.
The events take place a hundred years later, at a turning point for the Vikings. About when the time of the Vikings ended, it was marked by the Battle of Stamford Bridge.
If one forgets that most of the characters existed, and that none of the epics describe this course of action – and that most of them seem written to make some kind of “Game of Thrones” with longer and more religious struggles, they fall within “decent entertainment with loose dialogue”.
The latter is a little weird, because series creator Jeb Stewart actually has the rap “Is It a Christmas Movie” Die Hard on his autobiography. Of course, he did not get younger over the years, and, unlike the grandfather of the “Vikings” Michael Hearst, unfortunately did not cook everything on his own.
“Vikings: Valhalla” offers a full writing space, commission-based script where the synopsis appears to be “Take this group of historical figures who lived so long ago that no one remembers anything anyway.”
There have been some impressively designed battles, some compelling effects, disgusting human sacrifices, and a fearsome, well above average Christian army commander who is already doing everything to gain power. Of course under the guise of overcoming this contagious belief.
In this reverse religious race, “Vikings: Valhalla” does better than you think.
The rest you can Alternatively, play “Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla” to experience.
