In the midst of time comes the clanging of steel against steel, a collision of myth, history and fiction.... "Vikingdom". Loosely based on Viking legends and the epic poems they left as record, combined with a creative interpretation "Vikingdom" is a fantasy, action adventure about a forgotten king, Eirick, who was tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the God of Thunder. Thor is on a mission to gather the key ancient relics - "Mjolnir" - his hammer from Valhalla, "Necklace of Mary Magdalene" from Mitgard and the "Horn" from Helheim. This needs to be accomplished before the Blood Eclipse, which happens once every 800 years, failing which, the pagan Viking Gods will never be able to rule and conquer mankind ever again. Only one man can stop him... Eirick, the undead. Written by

"Vikingdom", the title had the word "Viking" on it and being a Viking movie fan I just had to see it.
What can I say? Worst computer generated graphics I ever saw, the movie is all made with computer landscapes/scenery and that could be good if well made ("300", "Sword of Xanten") but it failed miserably.
The color palette seems to only have 3 colors at times, red, greed and white. The actors seem to have been cut down from paper (yes, it is that bad).
That could fit the main actor role Dominic Purcell since he has the acting skills of a cardboard, or should I say a piece of wood. I noticed this in previous movies of him and this one just confirms it.
Also, whats up with the native American look? I can't decide if I'm seeing a native American playing a viking, or if they tried to give him some kind of a ridiculous "Conan the Barbarian" look.
Speaking of looks, what's up with Thor with his plastic hammer? Surprisingly Thor plays the part of the bad guy here (constantly in bad temper) but he wears a plastic hammer and has the strength of a normal guy. In fact his strength either is capable of blowing up doors (dynamite style) or he wrestles the main actor in a equal match...
Thor's hammer is famous in myth and history of being a magical object that ONLY Thor could lift.... how come the main character can lift it in the end? The film is a constant mess, ridiculous characters, ridiculous plot and scenery, the movie editing is confusing to say the least, fake bears in some cuts, a dragon with just a head and legs (no budget for the body?), Asian guys kicking around, total garbage.
Special effects looks like animated gifs, editing looks like it was made by a 5 year old, I couldn't stop but laugh all the way till It wasn't funny anymore and I had to fast forward on many scenes.
This is an insult to every Viking movie ever made and to Viking culture.
Actually this is more an insult to cinema than anything else.
Avoid like the PLAGUE.
