Audience Reviews for Gli Invasori (The Invaders) (Erik the Conqueror) (Fury of the Vikings)

I'm a rabid Mario bava fan, but I must say that Erik the Conqueror is not one of my favorite Bava films. The sets provide a cool, surreal effect to parts of the film, but the story is jumbled and cheesy in a way that can't ultimately be saved by the atmosphere alone. The acting and death scenes are atrociously long and overdrawn, and even the fun Viking attack scenes feel like stock footage. An entertaining but ultimately flawed film that does not rank high on the scale of Bava's genre masterpieces.

The land of the vikings looks and feels like a natural history diorama. Beside the wildly chaotic battle scenes - with flames and falling and obvious wide shots of stunt doubles - there is some inventive brutality. The Vikings vote with axes that solves nothing, only to decide things with a fight with burning metal. Great arrow ladder and terrible Christians. Not to mention saving the viking maiden so she can burn up on the funeral pyre of her dead husband. GREAT!
