When the Norseman on the beach receives two arrow in the left hip, the padding is visible under his outer garment area where the arrows sticks. The padding is also attached to his outer garment and not his body, as the arrows move with his garments and not his body.
The setting is supposed to be the Canadian coastline. However, the beach scenes were shot at Green Key Beach, in New Port Richey, Pasco County Florida, complete with varieties of palmetto scrub in several scenes.
The Norseman killed on the beach went down as if mortally wounded with only two arrows in his hip, and one that he pulled from his own shoulder. He also had blood coming from his mouth. Yet he had received no arrows to any vital part of his body or torso. And he never fought back or charged the Native Americans.
