Viewing Notes

Perhaps not quite as good in terms of composition, but Kriemhild’s Revenge makes up for it in raw, bloody violence! Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Margarete Schön is excellent as Kriemhild.

The action scenes are just nuts! Hard to believe no one was injured on set, especially during the burning palace scenes.
