Steinar:You go to such lengths to build these churches, making sure they strike terror into the hearts of all who come near. It's just a room with a door... no different to a prison.See more »

Absolutely rubbish!, 4 June 2013
Author: rightwingisevil from United States

don't even think this film worth writing a review. the whole movie is full of endless but clueless killings, weapons such as knives, swords, axes, daggers....except guns or machine guns are ridiculously used to create absolutely purposeless close combats. clueless masks wearing by clueless foes, modern-day costumes, haircuts....whatever you want to see are here. the dialog also put you forward to modern time, because even the word 'logic' is used by Odin believers who use Greek philosophic reasoning. this film obviously is cashing in with the hot TV series 'Viking(s) to lure more viewers, only the main character has been replaced by a guy who doesn't have blue eyes, long braid and rarely sneering with a ironic cunning smile. but his best friend, his loyal brother-in-arms, who later was killed by his sword, is the same actor who played similar role in 'Vikings'. this pathetic adapted copy also clueless put a absolutely pointless female character in it. the only thing i appreciated very much is the scenery, the beautiful cinematography that shows us the amazing wildness of the mountains, high plateaus, lakes....the cloud, the mist...they are just beautiful (my 2 stars is for the cinematography only) until ruined by this endless killings, battles and close combats. my English grammar turned even worse just by writing this pointless review for a pointless film. i rest my case.
