Goofs

The fact of a soldier wearing a wristwatch has passed into movie folklore as the favorite goof of many moviegoers. Similar stories are told of Ben Hur (1959) and Spartacus (1960). For The Viking Queen no still or precise reference has ever been found, and it is likely that the story is either apocryphal or that one of the wristbands worn by the soldiers was mistaken for a wristwatch.

There's a way to make this movie better...
25 March 2003 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Viking Queen is not an epic about the history of Romans in England. It is not a movie about romance (although there's a half-hearted attempt at it). This isn't, as the cover claims, a movie of action. Sit back, relax, and let your mind switch off. That's how to enjoy this film. In the inimitable style that brought us other pseudo-historical films, Hammer has ensured that our time and money is not wasted. It's certainly worth the wait to see the bladed chariot of death. Please don't try to praise this film, or even attempt to call it a classic. It's a joyful romp through the English countryside with an attractive blond, a wicked high priest, and a Machavellian second-in-command. Enjoy!
