I rented this movie with my friends, seeing as I'm from Iceland and I love animated movies that was a must.
But this movie is terribly disappointing. It's both disappointing to general movie goers looking for a decent movie to watch, and for people that are familiar with the Nordic mythology. The thing that set's this film off is the fact that it bears an striking resembles to the Disney film Hercules.
All the aspects that made Hercules a bad Greek mythology movie are presented here except they are applied to Nordic mythology.
But that doesn't mean that it's a bad movie, what makes it a bad movie is that fact that it's a very bland story that has no weight to it. The animation looks decent enough but they got very, very lazy with making more character models than they had to.
There is a terrible anti climatic fight scene at the end, where the thurs are attacking Valhalla attempting to tear it down, battle of gods! But it's only like 10 thurs and 10 Æsir figthing, which is pathetic to say the least.
and by the way, they got millions in funds that came from tax payers to make this piece of... not so good movie. ahem.
