"Varg is cast as a fat jewish boy and the entire movie feels like a cheap hitpiece on him and nothing more. Produced in part by Vice, so I'm not really sure what I was expecting. Everything and everyone is reduced to easily palatable Hollywood-friendly caricatures, historical accuracy be damned. Dead is basically Sean from SLC Punk, but suicidal and hangs cats. Euronymous is a very likable, good-hearted young man who just wants to be friends. Varg is fat and jewish and cannot stop fucking. Dumb."

"Worth the watch for the cinematography alone. The 40+ minute tracking shot encompasses dialog in two languages, at least four vehicle changes - one of which is a boat - dozens of people, several animals, incredible synchronization as the camera splits away from and rejoins a motorcycle, so much. Narratively it’s a nice work. The continuous traveling shot near the end is the most audacious thing I’ve ever seen recorded. Fantastic film."

"Impossibly generic, almost satirically so, with the most predictable and contrived, cliche-driven narrative imaginable. Literally devoid of redeeming attributes and entirely reliant on done to death tropes that went out of style decades ago at their most novel. I’ve never been angry at a film before, and then this waste of two hours came along and ruined my evening. Remove the expensive set pieces and high profile leads and you have an absurdly lazy, C-grade sophomore year film project."
