Storyline

Kievan Rus, late 10th century. After the death of his father, Svyatoslav I, ruler of Kievan Rus, the young Viking prince Vladimir of Novgorod (Danila Kozlovsky) is forced into exile across the frozen sea to escape his treacherous half-brother Yaropolk (Aleksandr Ustyugov), who has murdered his other brother Oleg (Kirill Pletnyov) and conquered the Viking territory of Kievan Rus. The old warrior Sveneld (Maksim Sukhanov) convinces Vladimir to assemble a Varangian armada, hoping to reconquer Novgorod from Yaropolk and ultimately face the mighty Byzantine forces.

Illogical free interpretation of history in its worst.
1 June 2017 | by kornuolisSee all my reviews

This movie has nothing to do with history and actually art of movie. The story told in the movie has nothing to do to Russia. The actual story is about Kyivan Rus' that existed long before Russia appeared. Briefly: Volodymyr looks like stupid monkey with AK-47. Story is illogical, torn and lifeless. Lots of stupid, unhistorical events like boats sliding from the hill. Another crap movie wasted over 200mln dollars of taxes. Despite the budget decorations are poor, 2nd plan actors lazy and pretending. God, this movie so bad that even Uve Boll would film it better.
