Not the Greatest, But great fun!
on July 1, 2013
I give this movie 5 stars because I am a sword and sorcery and ancient history nut. I would say that the gold standard for Viking movies is probably " The Vikings" starring Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis. Using that as a top notch Viking Movie to judge others by "The Last of the Viking's" pales by comparison. But I have recently discovered the Cameron Mitchell trilogy and love Them. But I love it for what it is Good B-rate movie entertainment, meant mostly for those like myself that must have all things sword and sorcery or historical action oriented ei. lots of violence and sword play with a descent story line. If your looking for a big budget block buster you will not find it here. What you will find is a hour or so of fun escapist fantasy to fill your time on some crappie winters day or stormy summer afternoon. If purchased for the right price you might want too give it a go. If your wanting another 50's 60's epic film with big name stars and glorious cinematography with hundreds of extras all in Technicolor then stay away. If your looking to bulk up your sword and sandal collection and can excuse some over acting and a low budget by all means pick it up. At the price I got this DVD it was worth the cover art alone. Beware the transfer is sad but watchable.
