Erik the Viking (Tim Robins) wants to change the world, he sets out on a quest to to Valhalla where they will wake the Gods. Halfdan the Black (John Cleese) and Loki (Anthony Sher) want to stop Eric from his mission.
The real problem for the film is it’s connection to Monty Python, if you watch it expecting a Monty Python movie, you will be disappointed.  However there is Monty Python style humor through out the movie-like where to sit in the boat or sea sickness scenes.
“Everyone stay calm! This is not happening!”
