Erik the Viking Reviews

April 24, 2011
A stillborn comedy in which minutes sometimes mysteriously go by between even attempted gags, and in which virtually no comic scene works up to any kind of viable punch line or payoff.

The idea of telling the story of a Viking warrior who thought there must be more to life than rape and pillage is an amusing one, and for the most part Erik the Viking is an enjoyable film.

Not a funny film, and neither well-directed nor exciting.
May 20, 2003
Doesn't measure up to the best of the Python films, but it consistently entertains through the occasional gags that do not work and dialogue that is sometimes obscured by sound effects.

"Erik the Viking," a Wagnerian slapstick fantasy, has the feel of a grown-up bedtime comedy, a gross, sillier "Princess Bride."
January 1, 2000
An utterly worthless exercise in waste and wretched excess, uninformed by the slightest spark of humor, wit or coherence.
