    Blodörn:

    The Blood Eagle was a method of torture and execution that is sometimes mentioned in Norse saga literature. It was performed by cutting the ribs of the victim by the spine, breaking the ribs so they resembled blood-stained wings, and pulling the lungs out. Salt was sprinkled in the wounds. Victims of the method of execution, as mentioned in skaldic poetry and the Norse sagas, are believed to have included King Ælla of Northumbria, Halfdan son of King Haraldr Hárfagri of Norway, King Edmund, King Maelgualai of Munster, and possibly Archbishop Ælfheah of Canterbury.
    From Wikipedia

    I would be scared shitless...

    Bad publicity is as good as any at this point hopefully a jew or two might see the film and realize with what they are playing...
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    Screw Leonardo Dicaprio. I respect him as an actor, but he wouldn't make a good viking, he's too soft. Mel usually has a knack for casting authentic looking characters. I just hope he can get through his legal dilemas soon so he can get back to work.

    Not to mention he's what, quarter Sicilian arab. What a viking.

    Gibson should make a film about the jewish control of the banks and the media and the academia. He knows about it. He's got the money to realize the project. Alas, he is a coward, who can only scrounge up the courage to say what he thinks with the power of distilled fruit and/or grains. What a sad excuse of a man.

    Let’s hope it rekindles the interest in a few Germanics with regards to their Viking ancestry, at least Mel Gibson usually picked his roles well (The Patriot, Payback, We where Soldiers, Brave hart comes to mind), Though I have not seen the passion or any other movie he has directed for that matter (I doubt I ever will see the passion though ) and at least his view should be slightly more balanced then let’s say a jewish director’s would be... As far as I know jews where not impressed with the passion (but I suppose equally so for some Germanics though the reasons are completely different) , perhaps like Sarrazin he dares not deviate too far from the general modes operandi from his chosen profession, after all you do whant "liberals" to give it a fair chance...
    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district.

    I'm waiting for this film since i first heard about it in january or something.
    Mel Gibson is an extraordinary director and a man i respect.

    Regarding Leonardo, i thought he was supposed to play an italian merchant?
