* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The film makes very few historical claims, but even then they don't match up very well. TheCrusades were triggered in 1095, about a century later than the purported setting of the movie.-- While the period around 1000 AD saw indeed some violent confrontations between pagans and Christians in Norway, such religious struggles had little impact in the British Isles. Then again, it's never really specified whether the first part of the movie is supposed to take place in Scotland (where it's filmed), or possibly in Norway.

* TokenGoodTeammate: Gary Lewis' character is probably the closest thing that the Christian Vikings have to one of these. He doesn't have any particular problem with carrying out a holy war, but is also the compassionate and cool-headed character in the movie.
