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.

21 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Pathfinder was not nearly as bad as many people are making it out to be. True, the editing was mediocre at best, with the seasons clearly out of whack. There were some pretty odd incongruencies with language as well. The filmmakers relied on some trite Native American imagery and stereotypes...

But Pathfinder was obviously never about the plot or silly Viking outfits. Ultimately I think the filmmakers wanted to impress upon the viewers the starkness of the landscape of "uncivilized" North America, and how the people who lived there survived. One of the best lines in the movie is delivered when Ghost tells his lady friend that the Vikings know eternal winter, but "don't know our spring." I think the movie, in its own kind of botched way, did a good job conveying the awe, reverence and fear that the people who lived in N.A. had for the seasons and the natural environment.
