Vikes is a movie that blends teen romance, drama, and comedy, released in 2017. Directed by Tenney Fairchild, the film follows the journey of three teenagers who decide to plan the best party of their high school, summoning their inner Vikings to accomplish that. With an engaging storyline, charming characters, and a tinge of humor, Vikes is an enjoyable watch for all ages.

The story is set in a high school of Minnesota, where three students - Thorvald (Aiden Alexander), Lars (Carter Hastings), and Ibby (Sydney Sweeney) - offer to throw a house party to celebrate graduation, hoping to create a memorable farewell for their outgoing friends. Thorvald, who comes from a family of staunch Vikings fans, decides to theme the party as a Viking gathering to pay homage to his heritage.

With the help of his two friends, Thorvald sets out on a mission to make their party the talk of the town. They aim to get the most popular DJ, coming up with a guest list, creating a perfect Viking decoration, and, most importantly, inviting every student in the school. However, achieving this isn't easy, and the trio face many roadblocks on their way. Meanwhile, Thorvald also develops feelings for a girl he likes, who may or may not attend the party.

As the story unravels, we witness the journey of these teenagers, who try to surpass every obstacle that comes their way while they plan the party. With an eye for detail, Thorvald, Lars, and Ibby put in extra effort to make the party perfect. But when a notorious neighborhood bully, Wyatt (Noah Munck), shows up with some unsavory friends, their dreams and much more are put at risk. The gang creates chaos at the party, threatening to destroy everything that the trio has worked hard for.

The movie portrays the lives, friendships, and struggles of high school students, all while keeping an exhilarating pace. The feel-good movie makes us realize how high-pitched our expectations are during these formative years of our lives. It reminds us of the importance of friendship, the power of teamwork, and how to deal with teenage love.

Aidan Alexander's portrayal of Thorvald is worth mentioning, as the young actor plays the role with ease, bringing the character's nerdy yet cool vibes to life. Sydney Sweeney, who we later see in the HBO miniseries "Sharp Objects," does a fantastic job as Ibby, who becomes a love interest to Thorvald. Carter Hastings, who plays Lars, Thorvald's best friend, adds a spark to the film, and his friendship with Thorvald is a highlight of the film.

In conclusion, Vikes is a delightful movie that tells a charming tale of friendship, love, and teenage shenanigans. The movie succeeds in portraying the trials and tribulations of high school students and how they navigate through complexities. With its upbeat energy, the film hoists us into the world of the Vikings of Minnesota, where we can experience a carefree life with cool tunes and cute characters.
