'The Northman' Movie Review

'The Northman' is brilliant, beautiful and bloody filmmaking at its best! An epic and ultra-realistic Viking movie that pulls influence from 'Braveheart,' 'Spartacus,' 'Conan the Barbarian,' and even William Shakespeare's 'Hamlet,' and features a career-defining performance from Alexander Skarsgård.

The movie begins in 895 A.D. on the imaginary island of Hrafnsey where King Aurvandill (Hawke) is brutally murdered by his brother Fjölnir (Bang), while his son, a young Prince Amleth (Oscar Novak) watches in horror. Amleth barely escapes and is eventually discovered and raised by a band of Vikings, but vows to one day avenge his father's murder and rescue his mother, Queen Gudrún (Kidman).
