Valhalla Rising

It's a trip into a primordial world and primeval sensibilities, and if you're looking to shake off the mall-movie blahs, there are few better places to look.

— John Anderson, Wall Street Journal

Like a John Milius film reduced to its pure, masculine essence and shot through one of Alejandro Jodorowsky's lens filters.

— Scott Tobias, AV Club

For years, the fearsome figure known only as One Eye (Mads Mikkelsen – PUSHER, FLAME & CITRON, CASINO ROYALE) has defeated everyone he’s encountered, but he’s treated more like an animal than a warrior. The only person he has any relationship with is the young boy who brings him food and water daily. Constantly caged and shackled, One Eye has drawn the attention of a new force now sweeping the countryside and displacing the society’s leaders: Christians.
