won't hold a candle to viking heritage
3 June 2013 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

Quite surprised to see at least 2 actors from the TV show "Vikings" in here (Clive Standen & Ivan Kaye), the comparison is unavoidable and this doesn't old a candle to that show quality or to any viking movie made until now.

First, the main actor can't act, has an unpleasant aura to him that makes him unlikeable from the beginning & looks like a misplaced "David Beckham" in the woods.

I have no idea how Clive Standen got into this, since he is clearly the best actor for the main role but the movie is so damn awful in lack of plot, meaning & pace that this was completely avoidable in his career.

What they paid to the great James Cosmo for entering this is a big question mark, since the man made more Epic movies (and good ones) than anyone around here.

Action scenes are a mess - terrible fight sequences shot in a portable cam style (the old trick to disguise the mess of it all), story is poor, badly written & lacks direction.

Wardrobe is a mess and you practically don't see any real viking building around (the ridiculous tents they used were hilarious to say the least).

I get the feeling they tried to make a "Centurion" style of movie, with "vikings" in the middle.... but failed entirely to catch my attention from the beginning.

At several points in the movie the constant shouting becomes annoying and was a torture seeing it to the end.

I'm glad the Viking period is finally getting some attention in movies, series & good documentaries, but this movie is a total mess.

Want a good viking movie? Try Vikings with Kirk Douglas, or 13th Warrior, "Beowulf & Grendel" or the great "Vikings" TV series who's series 1 just ended, but avoid this like the plague.

Lets hope Mel Gibson gives "Berserker" a shot, now there's a director worth of the word "Epic" & able to put some sense, feeling & great fight sequences in a movie.
