Director/Actor rising

Valhalla Rising. Nicholas Winding Refn. I am a fan of their movies. Both Mads Mikkelsen and director Nicholas Refn have captured my imagination since Pusher. The danger of watching this movie is that you may think that it is some sort of viking action movie, but it is not. I feel it touches upon the Eternal Champion mythos and since I am a fan of Michael Moorcock and his books, this movie was just right for me. I loved the art direction, scenery and choice of shots. The acting was right there at the top, I guess story wise you have to dig it. I did. I know some of you will not but watch it anyway to form your opinion on it. Refn and Mikkelsen deserve that chance. (2009)
