J.J. 'Jake' Gittes's rating of the film Vikings

There is a lot of action, blood & violence. Very well made. Never boring, a lot of twists and turnarounds when it comes to greed, alliances & egoism. Suprisingly this is also on very high levels intellectually when it comes to dogmatism. The set of principles laid down by religion, tradition and behaviour as incontrovertibly true, are no more valid. This is the main aspect here. Masterpiece.
