No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
The Arctic looks like a melted dessert, the Viking village like a low-rent neighborhood in Disneyland, and the Vikings themselves like Hell's Angels on Halloween.
Unimaginative plot, interminable dialogue in 'Old Norse', some pointless love interest, and a particularly repulsive poodle.
Stunningly photographed scenery and convincing visual effects make this film one of Disney's more believable efforts.
So-so Disney spectacle with not so special effects.
Loved it as a kid, but I haven't seen it since.
