“Well-acted, directed, and undeniably thrilling. Alexander Skarsgård cuts a swath of bloody vengeance in a ferocious Viking epic. The film vividly combines a Hamlet-esque narrative with Scandinavian history and mythology.”– Julian Roman, MovieWeb
“The kind of filmmaking that rips you out of your body so hard that you’re liable to forget what year it is. In a movie era that’s been defined by compromise, ‘The Northman’ rides into theaters with the fury of a Valkyrie. You’ll feel like you’ve died and gone to Valhalla.”– David Ehrlich, INDIEWIRE
“It might not be subtle, it might not even be particularly deep, but it sure is spectacular.”– Christopher Machell, CINEVUE
“300 meets Midsommar, and probably the most realistic Viking movie to date…a visceral experience worthy of the big screen - and your time.”– Grace Randolph, BEYOND THE TRAILER
“Eggers’ immersive approach and stylistic flair creates one wild, applause-worthy combat scene after another, reminding viewers why he’s one of the most unique visual artists working today.”– Tomris Laffly, AV CLUB
“An absolute beast of a movie.”– TIME OUT
