“This movie was a brainchild of the venerable Pythons (Monty pythonu0026#39;s flying circus, Yellowbeard, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Life of Brian) and while only a couple of them are in it, it has their usual stamp of silliness and political incorrectness. The python troup has several history professors among it and thus their historical flicks, while silly, also usually manage to work some real history into the mix. Anyone familiar with the viking belief system and legends will really enjoy this movie for its correctness and attention to detail in that regard. While there are many amusing parts of the movie, I found the Christian priest that accompanyied them and couldnu0026#39;t see any of the viking gods (because that was not his belief system), perhaps the most amusing part of the whole movie.”
