Trivia

The Pathfinder's house was constructed around a real tree which was found at the location and had to be reinforced. The design of the Native American huts was partly inspired by the famous opera house in Sydney, Australia. See more »

Goofs

(at around 46 mins) There is a wide shot of Ghost leaving the tribe after warning them about the Vikings being on their way to kill them all, and he is being followed by the mute character. In the first wide shot of the sequence you see them going right through the middle of the screen, the next shot is a close up of the same shot and you can see a trail in the snow ahead of them made by repeating the same shot. The next shot is made in some bushes but the next shot shows the same original wide shot with the same location but this time they are crossing on the bottom right corner, but you can still see the trail in the snow in the middle of the screen from the previous shot.

One Lost
16 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Twenty years ago, there was a terrific Norwegian action film called "Pathfinder" set in the Dark Ages and dealing with a boy whose family is slaughtered by marauders; villagers take him in. When the boy has grown into a young man, the marauders return, affording our hero the chance to repay his benefactors by avenging himself on the bad guys. It was brisk and chilly and had a real sense of mythic resonance. It was good.

Here, now, is another film called "Pathfinder," virtually identical in plot. And it is everything the original was not: muddled, ugly, pointless, silly, incoherent, overly familiar and exceedingly dull. It is not good.

German director Marcus Nispel, who remade "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" a couple of years back and likely is working on a lousy new version of something else now, has an eye: The film is handsome. But he has no ear or brain -- or at least not those parts of the brain that deal with such niceties as narrative, character, dialogue and logic.

Karl Urban (Eomer to "Lord of the Rings" fans) stars a Nordic boy raised by Native Americans after being left behind in a Viking raid of North America. Probably the filmmakers (a dozen producers are credited) thought the introduction of Native Americans allowed for soulful depths. Actually, it allows for painfully dim clichés about prophecy, spirits and discovering "who you are" -- as patronizing in its way as the most insult-ridden cowboys-and-Indians movie of the '30s.

Other characters include a heroic love interest (Moon Bloodgood), a wise elder (Russell Means) and a mute sidekick (Kevin Loring). These brief descriptions are about all the depth these characters ever acquire.

Most of "Pathfinder" is given over to ridiculous chases and fights that remind you how skillful "Apocalypto" was at similar scenes. Someone who had never seen an action movie wouldn't credit a minute of it. In a way, it's perfect: You can't imagine anyone seeing this mess and not feeling lesser for the experience.
