The Northman

3.9 out of 5 based on 319 348 reviews

David: Feel like I might not have thrived in Viking times.

Elvis: Eggers is the Hidetaka Miyazaki of the film industry. Everything this man touches is dark, depressing and incredibly brilliant.

Reece: The single most FERAL movie I have ever seen.

Reinier: Blood and fury. From a tangle of visions, prophecies and mirages emerges a fairly straightforward tale, but one told with as much grace as gleeful brutality.

The Northman Review

Technically, the movie is impeccable as well. While Eggers favoured more unusual aspect ratios for The Lighthouse and The Witch, where he shoots the film in 2:1, giving true scope to Jarin Blaschke’s visuals. The movie is a visual and sonic feast, with incredible sound design and a score by Robin Carolan & Sebastian Gainsborough that MUST be remembered by the academy next year. It all adds up to a genuinely immersive Viking experience, with loads of action and violent carnage that should please everyone. The Northman delivers all of the action you want from a movie like this, but Eggers also elevates it by giving it a truly original, artistic bent. This is one of the best mixings of the arthouse and blockbuster genres that I’ve ever seen. Trust me when I tell you, The Northman is a masterpiece. Read full review…

The Northman Review

5 out of 5

This is intimate, culturally rich storytelling on a brutally epic scale. Skarsgård is in his element, bolstered by a sensational cast throwing themselves headfirst into Eggers and Sjón’s awe-inspiring vision. A cinematic saga worthy of the ancestors. Read full review…

THE NORTHMAN REVIEWS

Zoë: The Northman is an epic the likes of which we hardly see in Hollywood anymore, carefully curated by a master of the medium and packed with powerhouse performances.

Rob: Eggers is still a major reason to stay interested in whatever movies are becoming.

Robert: It is disappointing that The Northman goes past what would have been a truly radical ending and extends itself for a zany climax that qualifies as Valhalla porn.

Erin: The Northman is a brutal and violent film, felt in both its protagonist’s appetite for revenge and a world that seems to require suffering to continue turning.

THE NORTHMAN REVIEWS

Cristal: The characters seemed like they had no depth and the storyline didn’t feel very well thought out either.

Tony: Gritty, high-stakes, unrelenting in its narrative and knows what kind of story it wants to tell. I highly respect how they portrayed the characters to be as true to the era as possible in a modern movie.

David: Story of a son avenging his family with a twist.

Kristina: A dark, eerie tragedy that entertwines the religious iconography of Norse legend with unfettered brutality of Viking living. Stunning visuals, suspense, and a heartbreaking tragic hero.

Alex: It’s all properly violent and uncivilised.

Emily: The Northman is a big-budget epic, but it retains those indie roots, with Eggers bringing in all of the elements that have made his past films so aesthetically successful. 

Richard: The Northman lives and breathes like the old epics; not Old Hollywood’s cartoonish depictions of warriors with horned helmets, but the ancient tales to which he pays deep respect.

Donald: Perhaps Eggers has lost some of the horrible intimacy we savoured in his earlier work. But he offers us compensation in scope, intensity and pure bloody ferocity.

The Northman Review

Robert Eggers’ viking revenge saga The Northman works best when it dives head-first into dreams and disorienting visions, but it slows down when it becomes a more traditional Hollywood narrative. With viciousness relegated to its margins, it often feels neutered and bloodless, but still ends up on the right side of entertaining thanks to its pulsating music and measured performances.
