It's one of those films that you feel cheated by when the credits roll. The time invested does not seem worth it even though there were some good elements in the film.

The time invested does not seem worth it even though there were some good elements in the film. Visually it is striking and full of depth. Thematically it is dull. Because the film demands itself to be interpreted because of nearly every word of it's dialogue being thematic the film should be expected to be deep and full of depth. However it is not. The film try's to make you like it by being confused by it but when you break it down there is not much to it unlike Hezog's aguirre which is quite similar to this film in story themes and visuals in a way.

I don't know I feel about this film I really like the way Refn films violence you know stylish and all i I even like the silence in his films. But this film borders the line between a slow pace and boring, I'll give it 3 and a half stars just because I admire the way he made the film have a certain feel to it ,a violent Opera is the best way to describe it.

Creepy film about a Killer from 1000 years ago in the Viking Mountains, who finds some Christian Crusaders looking to find Jerusalem but after a Mist find America...

The feel of the film is more Real, like from the 70's, and the scariness
Creepy film about a Killer from 1000 years ago in the Viking Mountains, who finds some Christian Crusaders looking to find Jerusalem but after a Mist find America...

The feel of the film is more Real, like from the 70's, and the scariness of new lands and strange things is inherent in the film...

VERDICT: IT WAS REAL/45 OUT OF 100

Le guerrier silencieux mais brutal ne dit pas un mot et son regard, son regard unique en dit davantage qu'un long discours. Il n'a pas de nom mais le gamin l'appelle le borgne.

Il n'a pas de nom mais le gamin l'appelle le borgne. Il a des prémonitions, voilà sans doute l'ancêtre archétypal des précognitifs... et "il est venu pour en finir".

Mads Mikkelsen est un acteur extraordinaire, littéralement, et le réalisateur Winding Refn réalise des films bizarres avec des fortunes diverses et lorsqu'ils ne le sont pas, ses "films" restent bizarroïdes quoi qu'il advienne. Et ici, on est dans la mauvaise fortune...

L'ambiance est dans la brume et les superbes paysages, les plans fixes, les contre-jours et la pose, car tous les acteurs prennent la pose à un moment donné ou un autre. L'esthétique est recherchée, la lumière est superbe, les dialogues sont rares et les quelques coups de hache font bobo dans de jolis "splatchs".

Devant cette absurdité surréaliste (mais pas complètement), on se retrouve à faire bon coeur, fasciné par cette ambiance visuelle, cet environnement sonore si travaillé. Un film sans queue ni tête, une sorte d'expérience ratée, une étrangeté aberrante, quelque chose de pas fini... la vérité est ailleurs.
