Tom Shone Times (UK) Not since Christopher Nolan’s Inception has a studio executive shown such balls of steel, or perhaps I should say boller av stal. Rated: 5/5 Aug 8, 2022 Full Review Guy Lodge Film of the Week Blood runs, mud flies and bones crack — in crisp, percussive ways you’ve hopefully never heard in real life — throughout The Northman, a grand, gut-spilling Norse epic that feels at once earthily ancient and thrillingly modern. May 31, 2022 Full Review Nick Schager The Daily Beast A death-metal ode to honor, retribution and sacrifice that casts payback in a surprisingly, and thrillingly, positive light. May 3, 2022 Full Review Joonatan Itkonen Toisto.net Epic, brutally violent, nuanced, and dreamlike, The Northman is a showcase for a unique directorial voice worth celebrating. Rated: 5/5 Jul 3, 2024 Full Review Nicolás Medina Montevideo Portal / Latido Beat Neither tragedy nor Eggers skimp on violence, screams, sweat, blood and swords, along with ambitious mise en scène, some of the best photography and one of the most epic soundtracks of the year. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 10/10 Dec 19, 2023 Full Review Lee Zumpe Tampa Bay Newspapers Filled with stunning cinematography, the film is an intense, immersive, sometimes surreal, descent into an otherworldly milieu of folkloric horror and medieval barbarism.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Beach&BarnJI One of the better movies of the year that most people didn't see. It's dark, gritty, and visually beautiful!
