Finally here...
7 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Saxon Chronicles is finally here. I saw a screening of this film at the LDS Box Film Festival because my buddies from the SCA were extras in this film. I had very low expectations for this movie, considering all the movies at the festival were terrible, probably the worst I have ever seen. Then there was "The Saxon Chronicles", not to be confused with the campy medieval short shown before. This movie really surprised me. Here we have a film about King Alfred the Great that was shot in Utah, of all places, that was actually really enjoyable to watch. Some of the acting was okay, and no one really had any English accents, which was distracting, but the story was wonderful. I give kudos to the director, Jeshua De Horta, for his ability to undergo such a huge project, with such a low budget, and to the writer for a wonderfully written script with characters that felt real and a script with quotable dialog, and to King Alfred (aka Darin Southam) for this rugged portrayal of the Saxon King. The star of the film however goes to the actor who played Chad, James Morris, he did an excellent job with his role, in everyone of his scenes it's hard to keep your eyes off him, my only regret is I wish I would've seen more of him in the film.

So to summarize: Congratulations Writer, Congratulations Actors, and Congratulations Director...

Shame on the LDS Film Festival for giving no appropriate recognition or awards to this great film.

Cheers, William Dagobert II
