Editorial Reviews

Vikings! They came from the North and soon the legends would say that they did not know fear. For hundreds of years they were another name for terror. They sailed icy oceans and narrow rivers striking far inland without warning without mercy. However the truth about the Vikings is far more complex. Much of Europe s traditions technology and institutions come to us from these fierce men of the North. England Germany Russia along with their homeland of Scandinavia all bear the Viking s mark today. Shot on location in Iceland Greenland and Newfoundland this breathtaking IMAX® film joins the Viking warriors explorers and settlers as they set out in search of new lands. The North Atlantic Sagas come to life as we follow Eric the Red and his son Leif Ericsson first to Greenland and then on to North America 500 years before Columbus. State-of-the-art digital graphics dramatically illustrate the unique shipbuilding techniques that were the key to propelling the Vikings across the Atlantic and into history. Join the Viking warriors, explorers and settlers as they set out in search of new lands to conquer! Also includes DTS Digital Surround audio track.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy, watchable overview of the Vikings in the West December 18, 2006
I saw this film originally in the omnimax format, then purchased it when it became available this October. This is a great, watchable overview of the vikings in their journeys to North America. Lots of reinactments - the ususal omnimax scenic photography. The film does NOT go into detail of the vikings influence in the east - if you are interested in that, I'd recommend the NOVA viking video.

Also - the NOVA film (2 hours) goes into greater detail on all their topics -but it is a dryer more 'academic' film.

Overall - great intro film if you find yourself intrigued by the Vikings :)

4.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to our study of the Vikings. January 28, 2010
I rented this dvd to show to my 9 and 7 year olds to supplement our study of the Vikings. It was a big hit. It's not childish at all, but was very interesting and appropriate for their ages. The violence of the Vikings is discussed but not shown. The reenactments helped a lot to hold the attention of the kids too.

compared to the old nova series that i love, kids like this imax version of history better, due to the filming style in short snips and very colourful.

4.0 out of 5 stars acceptable for classroom December 31, 2010
Verified Purchase
This DVD is listed as 62 minutes, but the running time w/o the extras is 37 minutes. An unseen, male narrator describes the events. Action is suggested rather than portrayed. The arial views as impressive. It's fine as a filler for my 6th grade history class.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vikings Journey August 19, 2011
Verified Purchase
Boy do I love reading books and watching videos about these guys! Two ships with only 120 men could storm a town of thousands, pillage it senseless, and get away clean to do it again 20 miles down coast. Once their ships were so full of booty they couldn't plunder another town, they headed home, only to have to worry about later-launching Vikings who might decide to plunder them! How such barbarism could be so effective for centuries without anyone finding a way to thwart them is a mystery to me, but there it is.
Another mystery is why all of "civilized" Europe stayed within comfortable sight of land, while only the Vikings had the courage to sail beyond the horizon, braving the monsters and the end of the earth. Some say it was just greed, but that greed had to be backed up with a lot of courage and skill. It took another 500 years before Columbus risked a western voyage.
