YMMV / The Raven Trilogy

Go To

  • Dyeing for Your Art: In Shadow of the Raven the starring role was played by Reine Brynolfsson who is a Swede. He had to learn to speak Icelandic for the part, and not phonetically either, but fluently. So far, he has never spoken Icelandic in another role, ever again.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The films, especially When the Raven Flies, has had a way larger impact in Sweden than it did in Iceland. Ask a Swede if they know any Icelandic and chances are high they will say: Thungur Hnifur.

  • Special Effect Failure: The first film had no dedicated SFX guy, instead everyone who had some sort of knowledge about special effects chipped in. As such we get orange blood, swords that look like oversized butterknives, and armour that's obviously made of cheap leather and cloth.

How well does it match the trope?
