Leif Erikson (or the worst animated movie, you'll ever see)
« on: December 20, 2015, 07:13:31 PM »
The story is hard to explain, because I honestly can't remember it. The animations are the worst, I've ever seen. The movie is so bad, that it's absolutely indescribable!

I talk about this movie (even the IMDB hasn't as much information as usual).

Here's a trailer (unfortunately only in German):



If you survive this movie, you survive everything! (and I have a feeling, that Claws will accept the challenge  :silverweed2 )

I'm quite busy with my two sites but... sure, why not? :P

It looks like a really bad Asterix movie, but the score sounds decent.

All the characters look so stretchy! The animation is not very good at all!
If we light a candle, a shadow appears. The more we strive for light, the bigger the shadow will grow behind us.

You put your head above the parapet calling this "animation" :D

Some of the effects -particularly during the fist part, with the ship- are quite decent, though.

You can be as hard as you want on the movie, but you gotta admit that some real time and effort went into making it... even if the whole thing doesn't shine as a result.

No, sorry. This movie is completely awful. One IMDB-review describes it as "Vikings on Drugs" and that's, what the creators had to be.

Man, this movie is from the same people who created An American Tail.

Nope. And when you know An American Tail (at least the first two movies) and then you see THIS THING...  :vervain-facepalm
