For years, One-Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been held prisoner by the chieftain Barde. Aided by a boy, Are, he kills his captor and together they escape, beginning a journey into the heart of darkness. On their flight from bounty hunters, One-Eye and Are board a Viking vessel, but the ship is soon engulfed by an endless fog that first disintegrates as they sight an unknown land. As the new land reveals its secrets and the Vikings meet a ghastly fate, One-Eye discovers his true self.
I havn’t seen any of Nicolas Refnâ€™s films. But they sure do seem to get a ton of buzz and have a definite fan base. This film looks gritty as hell. I want to check this one out for sure. One badass Viking film.
