An epic. More accurately, a saga, based on the Saga of Haakon Haakonsson, an unusually well documented account of the life of the most successful Norwegian king of the Middle Ages.
“Lord of the Rings” was walking and fighting, walking and fighting. “Last of the Mohicans” was running and fighting, running and fighting. “The Last King” is skiing and fighting, skiing and fighting”. All good movies. This one has high production values, a good story to tell and is a lot of fun to watch.
If you watch “Game of Thrones”, the big Wilding with the red hair is one of the stars of this movie. Plays pretty much the same guy.
