The Vikings is spectacular, rousing and colorful.
It is the best advertisement for beer-drinking since the breweries put wrestling on TV.
Plenty of pillaging, axe-throwing, hearty quaffing of ale, storming of castles, heroic jumping into wolf pits, and manly talk about the glories of entering Valhalla with sword in hand.
Curtis' 'hero' is an unmitigated swine who cuts a swathe of destruction through the lives of all around him. Highly recommended.
An enjoyable adventure film that benefits from first class work all round, The Vikings is a must for film historians and a pleasure for the rest of us.
The real stars are the production people
Directed with brawn over brain by Richard Fleischer.
Fighting he-men and their war ships
Pretty good actioner with star power.
Highly entertaining and slightly camp historical adventure full of great stunts, larger-than-life characters and splendidly OTT dialogue.
As the massive battle scenes and convoluted political machinations paraded across the screen, I thought, "This was the Braveheart of the 1950s!" and I was right.
The "Spartacus" pairing of Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis together again for some sword and sandal, sackcloth costume wearing, teeth-gritting action all the way ... solid entertainment any way you look at it! Janet Leigh as the sultry woman between them, And once again, Ernest Borgnine anchors the thing whole movie with an understated (but overstated) supporting role as the lusty Viking King Ragnar.
This is a cool movie about Vikings as played by Douglas and Curtis. The movie is really exciting and the story is great, it's pretty accurate, and very dramatic as well. I enjoyed this movie.
Just a great epic that never lost it's sense of fun and imagination. A lot of that goes to Kirk Douglas who is the epitome of the legendary Viking, he's a brutal drunken savage. However, he's also a great character and full of emotion rather than being just a stereotype. What also makes it great is the amazing set design, costumes and score. On top of that, the story is so well done and not typical of just another love & war story. The castle invasion is probably one of the greatest battle scenes, you don't get better action than that.
