Odin how could you
Bizarre film. Big name cast, and great cinematography. But the movie is almost dreadful. Kirk Douglas is very hammy and Tony Curtis is out of his depth. He is sort of playing a brooding Oliver Reed type character, but looks like he wants his hair stylist to rush in and make sure he is looking dapper. When he is throw in the tidal pool the movie becomes almost laughable. Janet Leigh is beautiful as always. Odd movie in that it they spent lots of money but the plot is pedestrian. Worth watching once for the scenery.
In my Top Ten list

I love this movie. I would have been 11 years old when I first saw it and was completely enthralled with the story and the actors. I remember crying at the end when they held the funeral. I've looked for it to be shown on TCM for quite some time and will definitely tune in for this. I hope to see it shown more often as it really is an "essential" to me.

Hello and Happy New Year!,I remember watching this movie at the drive-in theater with my family in 1958 It was just so much fun and a real wonder. I`ll never forget I was 11 years old. I graduaded from the 6th grade in 1959. God bless the movie industry.Garnetta Darton

This epic, shot on location in Norway, is decent entertainment. Curtis & Douglas, Viking brothers unknown to each other, fight each other for the love of captured damsel Leigh. Only Cardiff's cinematography can make the empty Viking fights tolerable to sit through. Not much in story, but high on action & scope. I give it a 2.5/5.
This is a classic as i remember when i was growing up watching and as a kid wanted 2 b a Viking would always play like we were Vikings and always wnted 2 die like a Viking and live like a Viking and yes tys stuck in my head and yet still 2 this day goes on. Has been years and years senice i have seen it 2 long 2 remember hope tmc will play it coming months ty rocky in Detroit

This movie, while not on the scale of a David Lean epic, is rich in detail and story. As a Norse descendant, I also respect the art direction and historical costuming invested into this movie. No silly horned helmets or frothing berserkers in this picture. But like most fans of this movie, it's one you can enjoy again from time to time. Also, I recently made my kids watch the last closing scene so they can get my desired funeral arrangements correct.
A Spectacular, Brawling Epic.
- Frank Harris Horn
Kirk Douglas, Tony Curtis, Ernest Borgnine and Janet Leigh go on location in Norway, Munich, Germany and Brittany, France to star in director, Richard Fleischer's violently action-packed adventure narrated by Orson Welles, and based on the novel by Edison Marshall. Douglas and Curtis are the two sons of a savage Viking King (Borgnine), who are unaware of each other's true identities, and find themselves in a bloody conflict for the love of a beautiful kidnapped English princess (Leigh), a duel that will decide their fate and the future of the English throne. Big-name cast and on-location photography provided by Jack Cardiff are only standouts in routine Viking adventure. With James Donald, Alexander Knox, Frank Thring, Maxine Audley, Eileen Way, Edric Connor, Dandy Nichols & Per Buckhoj.

Movie: The Vikings
I just have always loved this movie since I was young. I always try to watch whenever it comes on air. It was and remains my all time very favorite Tony Curtis movie. ALL of the acting was excellent and it just appeals to me on so many levels. I would highly recommend this movie to all who respect and care about any of the actors in this movie. It is far better than one expects upon first viewing..and the battle at the end between Kirk Douglas and Tony Curtis was just spectacular..I think it exceeds in every way the duel between Basil Rathbone and Errol Flynn in Robin Hood; which so many people tout as being the best fight scene in any of the older movies. I say..watch it and you will become hooked on it..just as I have.
