Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Valhalla Rising [DVD] (DVD)
Possibly one of the most boring, pointless and nonsensical films ever made. If there was a redeeming feature it was that the clunking script was sometimes so bad that it made me hoot with laughter, but not to the point where I don't wish I hadn't bothered.

Got to agree with most of the negatives on here. There are times when I just can't be bothered to search deep into my soul and explore the hidden symbolism in a film. This was one of them. Dramatic...no. Uplifting....no. Inspiring...no. Thought provoking....no. In fact I can't imagine why the film was made at all. Where I disagree with the above is that were several times during the film when I wish I hadn't bothered. Violent...for the sake of it. Nothing to commend it at all unless you are stimulated by long drawn out pregnant pauses and chronic overacting. Buy this in a while, I predict they will be giving it away soon. Not often I have posted a comment like this.

I am afraid I disagree completely. Any fan of existantialist movies a la Ingmar Bergman is nound to love this. Truly captivating!
