“A death-metal ode to honor, retribution and sacrifice that casts payback in a surprisingly, and thrillingly, positive light.” (The Daily Beast)
“A ferocious revenge tale that’s heavy on the blood and sweat but light on the tears.” (Film Frenzy)
“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.” (Film of the Week)
“A savage and mesmerizing Viking saga like no other, Robert Eggers’ The Northman leaves your senses bludgeoned by the time the credits roll.” (The Ringer)
“Robert Eggers makes ‘The Northman’ as crafty as an art film, as brutal as a slasher flick – two-plus hours of arthouse savagery.” (NPR)
