Described as “an action-packed epic that follows a young Viking prince on his quest to avenge the murder of his father”, The man from the north was released exclusively in theaters on April 22, 2022.
Meagan wrote in her review for BD: “The deliberate yet brutal violence inflicted at every stage of Amleth’s mission will not be for the faint of heart. All of this creates a detailed and rich tapestry of Viking life. Meagan adds:The beating heart of The man from the north is a familiar tale of revenge, but in Eggers’ hands, it’s at least deeply engrossing.
