'Valhalla Rising' is, in my opinion, one of the best films I've seen in years. It's dark, violent, gritty and strangely beautiful. I will say that this film will not be for everyone. There is maybe a total of 10 minutes of dialogue laced throughout the whole film. It is rather artistic to say the least. However, I am neither a cinephile nor overtly adept at picking out the symbolism in movies and I still loved it and was able to follow along. In a way, this movie reminded me of Jim Jarmusch's film 'Deadman' with Johnny Depp. I would like to make mention that although this movie is not back-to-back action, the action scenes are EXTREMELY violent. If you find yourself in the state of mind where you just can't decide what to watch then the beautiful cinematography and surreal feel of this film will draw you in and probably keep you hooked, and since it's only an hour-and-a-half long it sure beats watching reruns of 'House' or some other drivel.Was this review helpful?
