The Northman

The Northman ★★★½

Everything horny/elemental/visceral in this should have been an extra five minutes longer or less sanded down (don't cower away from the draugr, you already have prophecy and gods in play - go crazy!). Weird disconnect between the midpoint twist and Eggers playing the revenge story straight - Amleth barely registers this new information, avenging the image of his father instead of the man he really was. Enjoyed the film most when it indulges in viscera (i.e. the initial Viking raid and everything in the volcano).
