It may not be as big a genre as the space opera or the superhero film, but the Viking picture has been around for about as long as filmmaking itself. But have you ever sat down to think about the most underrated Viking films? Not the best Viking movies, but the ones that deserve a little bit better than what they got upon release.
Fans of big names like Antonio Banderas or Mads Mikkelsen should check out The 13th Warrior and Valhalla Rising. Those looking for a bit of science fiction in their Viking movie should look into Outlander. In the mood for some laughs with your horned helmets? Erik the Viking is the movie for you. So, grow out a beard and drink some mead - we're running through the history of underrated Viking flicks that deserve a second look.
