No battle's won in bed. (C) The Havamal
Scandinavian theme always was one first my list. Whether mythology, Saga or true facts.
The story of Ragnar I was interested in more since the masterpiece of Harry Harrison "the Hammer and the Cross." And if the work we more interpreted post-ragnaroka fate and his life of Ragnarson, then "the Vikings" tells the story, directly related to Lothbrok (or Leather trousers).
Of course, the novelty of such master series as Ciaran Donnelly, who worked on such masterpieces as "the Tudors" and"Camelot",just gave about itself to know and with the same pilot the series was chained to a screen.
Start immediately with a beautiful Intro to the film, accompanied by an atmospheric "If i had a heart". Thank you for the track, to still listen to often.
So how I have mentioned, the action swirls around the lives of Vikings in one of the most legendary Danish kings (in our language" the Supreme rulers") of Ragnar Lothbrok from the kind of Ynglings, about the run varvaskim the raids that terrified the whole world their brutality and confidence. Artist Travis Fimmel on my opinion is just brilliant accustomed to the role matter what, scrolling through his devichinskiy period, slightly weevils as of such a seemingly slaveykovo guy he became the present leader of the Vikings.
Captivated me and Lagertha (Katherine Winnick) — warrior beautiful wife of Ragnar, which, when all of your feminine wisdom and love for family, suddenly can turn into a tough war, a patriot of his people. To watch their relationship is a great pleasure.
Can't make a note of the Gustaf Skarsgard, by his role as sly and brilliant of the boat Builder Floki, probably something which is a terrestrial prototype of the God Loki (so I in any case, thought). A very interesting character turned out.
In General, the selection of characters here just cheers, make-up, costumes, scenery, music. From just so look North.
Battle scenes filmed dynamic, realistic (which is rare), somewhere very badly, somewhere fascinating and beautiful.
Virtually no stupid dialogue, dilatory, in contrast to almost every phrase, whether it is addressing One or the Torah, whether the parting word or the word spoken with an insidious grin — could easily be a quote.
Nice to hear the names already know you the characters in the book, to observe the their formation, victories and disappointments.
I can say that the series only the first season I won't less "Game of Thrones" and can more.
