You’d be surprised just how many great vikings movies there really are. So do yourself a favor, watch the trailer for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla. Get yourself in the mood for some Celtic nonsense and check out these selections!
Alright so we’re starting this list out pretty family friendly. Brave is a Scottish fairy tale from the minds behind movies like Coco and Toy Story. Disney Pixar brings this epic fantasy movie to life with phenomenal animation and music.
Alright, so if Brave was not quite your speed and you want more violence, well… This movie delivers it in boatloads. Just, be aware that this movie is stupidly violent and intense, not for the faint of heart.
Focusing on the trials of a Viking named One Eye, played to perfection by Mads Mikkleson. One Eye fights for his life among the ritualistic killings of the Celtic Nords. Full of cinematic flair and indie film delights, Valhalla Rising is an underrated gem of filmmaking.
Want to just turn your brain off and enjoy some mindless stylized action? Then look no further then our friend Pathfinder.
Featuring the combined talents of Karl Urban and Marcus Nispel. Pathfinder is the story of a viking who is left behind in the Americas. As he becomes adopted by the Native Americans, he must eventually help them fight back against his fellow Norsemen.
It’s not anything particularly amazing. Action aged pretty well and to his credit, Karl Urban does try to elevate the film.
While this entry is not a movie, it sure as hell is the best place to get yourself hyped up!
Focusing on the intertwining stories of Ragnar Lothbrok and those around him. Vikings begins as a sort of adventure epic, and slowly turns into psychological suffering and historical action.
Stuffed to the brim with attention to detail, phenomenal action set pieces and Emmy Winning Acting. Vikings is one of the best TV series in the last decade, and a fantastic showcase for historical drama!
That’s our list folks! This one was a little shorter than most but there is a finite amount of good representations for Celtic heritage. Check out our list for our picks for the 10 Best Irish films if you want something similar!
