A Viking and a Persian prince become unlikely allies to find a fabled golden bell.

Saturday matinee shenannigans with an overly assorted international cast and fjords that look a bit to much like the Mediterranean coastline, but good fun. Of course the bit with The Mare, a fiendish execution device looking like a cross between a giant sword and a playground slide, steals the show.
