Erik the Viking gathers warriors from his village and sets out on a dangerous journey to Valhalla, to ask the gods to end the Age of Ragnorok and allow his people to see sunlight again. A Pythonesque satire of Viking life.


What on earth happened to the rest of the Monty Python's? This is not funny, this is not entertaining, this is not even a B-movie. If you liked the classic Monty Python movies (Life of Brian, Holy Grail), you will hate this one. If you still liked the later, a bit more bizarre ones (Jabberwocky), you will hate this one. And if you like a movie just because it features Terry Jones and John Cleese, well, then you will have the biggest disappointment you can imagine. They do appear, though. But what's missing is a proper plot, a decent soundtrack and production, and any kind of humour that could make you at least smile for one second. This could be a children's story if it wasn't so boring, dull and poor. The pathetic love-story elements are beyond being ridiculous. This is a new dimension of trash, but not an enjoyable one. If you liked anything of what Jones and companions were doing before, do yourself a favour and DON'T watch this movie. Don't say I didn't warn you.
