Karl Urban was originally considered for the part of Kainan, but he pulled out due to delays in production and went on to film Pathfinder (2007), another period movie involving Vikings. See more »
When Freya comes face to face with the creature in the cave, saliva from the creature's mouth drops on her cheek. On the next shot we see her face is clear. Then on the next shot the creature's saliva is on her face again. See more »
I mean seriously, Nordic swordplay and a kick-ass alien what more could you possibly want !?!?
In its genre: fantasy and sci-fi this is a guaranteed winner. Yes, it IS Alien vs. Highlander... and if you don't think that sounds awesome, well then you're missing out.
What lifts this though is a great cast, tight filming, good production, and, above all, some heart and soul that's been missing.
Honestly this is straight-out entertainment - the Alien is seriously bad, and the Nordic stuff is just how you'd want it to be. Just violent enough, with some horror, but nothing OTT it is very, very good at achieving its objectives.
All in all a great film and a definite Sci-Fi / Fantasy con favorite in the making...
