REVIEWS

Review by Edward H. Lindo (posted on 18-Aug-2007)

This was one of those movies that I watched during the early days of HBO. It was a very realistic story of a group of Vikings who had crossed the Atlantic around the time of Eric The Red. The costumes and props were very realistic for the time that the movie was made. The Viking Long-ship was also very accurate. This movie was made before the digital age so I give a lot of credit to the props and wardrobe people. The script was good as was the plot and story line. In the movie the Vikings land in the new world in search of one of their fellow Vikings who had disappeared some time ago. During the search they encounter North American Indians and the movie is climaxed by a battle between the Vikings and the Indians during a retreat to their Long-ship. I really enjoyed the movie and I have not seen it since the early eighties. To the best of my knowledge it was never made available on Video and is not available on DVD. But perhaps it might one day be realised.
