Reportedly “the best Viking picture made in Italy,” this 9th-century saga centers on long-lost brothers Cameron Mitchell and George Ardisson, who find themselves on opposite sides in the war between a Viking alliance and the embattled English. Thrill-a-minute stuff replete with spectacular land and sea battles “enhanced by Mario Bava’s luridly filtered photography and fluid camera technique, and his effortlessly eclectic direction” (Monthly Film Bulletin).
