Okay, so this film is unrealistic, silly, historically inaccurate, and a tad racist and misogynistic, but it's fun. Good, schlocky, entertaining fun.
This story of Vikings on a quest to find a legendary bell made of solid gold in many ways feels like a precursor to stuff like Indiana Jones, or Pirates of the Caribbean, or the National Treasure movies. And for that reason, I gotta give it some props. Yeah, it's not really a good movie, but I liked it, and am glad I watched it. Plus, it's kinda fun seeing Sidney Poitier play a ruthless Moorish ruler.
Something I didn't expect was some of the neat cinematography trhis movie has, especially some cool sequences involving lots of shadows and silhouettes. Turn your brain off, and give this a watch. If you like good old fashioned adventure stories, then this is a movie for you.
