The Viking (1928), possibly the first viking film.

What
VikingMovies.info is dedicated to information about films, video and TV on the theme of Vikings; Norse tradesmen, farmers, adventurers and – yes – barbarians who not only raped and murdered all over Europe, but also discovered America 500 years before Columbus. Viking fiction originating in the actual history of Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland is produced in most parts of the world, although Europe and USA dominates the audio-visual segment. Viking movies is one of the smallest action-adventure film genres, but the potential for epic storytelling, great action and amazing images can not be emphasized enough.

VikingMovies.info receives no funding or formal support from any private or government entity. We are independent, both in terms of execution and in editorial content.

Why
I discovered that there is no single, good resource on the net that collects information, news and reviews specifically on the topic of Viking movies. And when something does not exist, one creates it! Unless otherwise proven wrong, I belive this website is the first and only website that tries to be a comprehensive and journalistic resource on Viking movies.

Our rating scale
We review films on a scale ranging from 1 – 10. The ratings are defined like this:

10 – All time classic, one of the best movies ever made
9 – One of the best movies of its decade
8 – One of the best movies of its year
7 – A good movie
6 – Above average, but not a masterpiece
5 – Average (not good, but not bad either)
4 – Could have been average with minor adjustments
3 – Poor, but has potential
2 – Very bad, few positive things can be said
1 – As bad as it gets

Each rating is a summary of the “quality” of the movie, whatever that means. A review does not necessarily include all judgements made to reach a particular rating. We do not give ratings to home made “amateur” movies made on very low budgets, or movies with no professional ambitions, as that is unfair for many reasons. Reviews are closed for comments as we’re not going to debate judgements. Unless otherwise noted, reviews are written by Glenn Folkvord.
