This is a good animated feature with lots of action that's suitable for older youngsters and adults. Valhalla, where the gods live and the souls of dead warriors are enshrined, is filled with powerful spirits like the supreme Odin (voice of Mark Jones) who is the creator of the cosmos and the god of war and death. Thor (voice of Stephen Thorne), the god of Thunder, is there too. He is also connected to war and rain, as well as the English word "Thursday" (Thor's day). Back in ancient times, humanity was divided between allegiance to Thor and allegiance to his enemy Loke. These two rivals follow a rainbow bridge from Valhalla to the land of the Giants, where grungy, Maurice Sendak-type monsters bash each other around. Battles and trickery ensue, involving human and godly characters in a struggle for supremacy. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Valhalla
A wonderful and tender tale of Nordic Mythology. Expect to find Thor, Loki, Giants, Sea Serpents and lots of met. The movie is quirky and off-beat and lacks a bit of classic "American" storyline and feels like a fable or a mythological tale, which makes sense after all. The movie also has some rather surreal moments which resemble the mastery of early Disney classics - A severed head playing chess (with living pieces) against the King of Gods anyone ? Class !
The movie was hard to come by and I watched it in Danish (with Eng Subs). The animation is spot-on and has much eye for detail with the odd hint towards Nordic Mythology's raunchy undertone.
Compared to most of Disney cartoons and the more recent output of Dreamworks and co, the movie feels very true and honest, like a granny's retelling of an ancient story and is very heartwarming.
I do highly recommend you pick up this movie should you find it on DVD or VHS. It is not an easy find but it's worth being on the lookout for
