A gritty Viking quest story, only failing to entertain

The film started well with a bunch of Vikings coming to reinforce their military presence in Britain. Immediately, though, they learn that the king is dying, hence the quest. The actors were a bit weird, but I thought it lent veracity to the whole misfit Viking group concept. There were some intrigues and possible betrayals, beautiful scenery, actual Viking behaviour (haven't met any, but I could believe this was something they did) and high production values. It was all set for greatness.

And then it faltered. I don't know exactly when it did, but it did and the rather brutal finale did almost nothing to shake the feeling that something is terribly off. Perhaps the different pieces of the puzzle that didn't fit together was the problem. Indeed, looking back, almost none of the perils through which the group passes are actually leading the story. It feels like a bad horror movie where people die one by one for no real reason other than to leave the guy and the girl alone in the end.

Bottom line: too bad that from something that could have easily become a cult hit, like The 13th Warrior, it went to a sub par film. And the ending was abysmal.

Better than I thought it would be after reading these reviews!

I don't understand the rating this movie has on here right now! This movie is as good as sooo many movies in this genre with much better scores. (i.e. Kingdom of Heaven, King Arthur, Robin Hood, etc...)

Yes, okay, the casting choices weren't great (the main actors were great, although unknown, but the female roles were all poorly cast)and the story was, a little, thin, but this movie gains points from me for it's atheist message.

It was also shot very cool and the soundtrack was AWESOME. I hope the success of this film encourages more independent style period pieces in a market dominated by the big companies.

Absolutely rubbish!

don't even think this film worth writing a review. the whole movie is full of endless but clueless killings, weapons such as knives, swords, axes, daggers....except guns or machine guns are ridiculously used to create absolutely purposeless close combats. clueless masks wearing by clueless foes, modern-day costumes, haircuts....whatever you want to see are here. the dialog also put you forward to modern time, because even the word 'logic' is used by Odin believers who use Greek philosophic reasoning. this film obviously is cashing in with the hot TV series 'Viking(s) to lure more viewers, only the main character has been replaced by a guy who doesn't have blue eyes, long braid and rarely sneering with a ironic cunning smile. but his best friend, his loyal brother-in-arms, who later was killed by his sword, is the same actor who played similar role in 'Vikings'. this pathetic adapted copy also clueless put a absolutely pointless female character in it. the only thing i appreciated very much is the scenery, the beautiful cinematography that shows us the amazing wildness of the mountains, high plateaus, lakes....the cloud, the mist...they are just beautiful (my 2 stars is for the cinematography only) until ruined by this endless killings, battles and close combats. my English grammar turned even worse just by writing this pointless review for a pointless film. i rest my case.
