Erik the Viking

not as funny as python, but good adventure with some depth...

i've wanted to see this film for a while now. not knowing much other than it was by terry jones and starred a few monty python guys (jones and cleese), i figured it was worth watching. it started off pretty funny, then got boring, then got pretty good. tim robbins is pretty good as usual (in one of his earlier and lesser known roles) as the reluctant viking turned heroic leader.

probably my favorite part in the film was when the christian guy saw through the silliness of the mythology and was able to save the group. i was pleasantly surprised by erik the viking, even though there were a few dull parts.
