1000 AD, for years, One Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been held prisoner by the Norse chieftain Barde. Aided by Are, a boy slave, One Eye slays his captor and together he and Are escape, beginning a journey into the heart of darkness. On their flight, One Eye and Are board a Viking vessel, but the ship is soon engulfed by an endless fog that clears only as the crew sights an unknown land. As the new world reveals its secrets and the Vikings confront their terrible and bloody fate, One Eye discovers his true self.

In my humble opinion this is a very underrated movie. I really enjoyed it, but maybe because I knew what I was getting into.
The movie is slow and atmospheric but in a really good way. It's like a trip, sometimes like meditation and sometimes like a nightmare.
I would definitely recommend the movie, if you know that this is not an historic action flick.

I think this is a budget movie.. and not a meaning full story and whole movie is slow but intense.. also not a lot of dialogue.. I didn't disliked it but didn't liked either..

wow, what a really bad movie. And Mad Mikkelsen is not the problem at all. He is badass, but the movie is just so unbelievable pseudo-meaningful.

Yeah, perhaps it has somethin to do with an old mythology, but guys: i want a movie and some hints in it. not that kind of crap.

So: Drive was a good movie from Winding Refn, this one is awful.

2/10 for Mikkelsen performance.
