As Salina and Justinian fall in love their enemies start to plot, and blood soon stains the green hills of Britain. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

There's a way to make this movie better...
25 March 2003 | by boom-10See all my reviews

The Viking Queen is not an epic about the history of Romans in England. It is not a movie about romance (although there's a half-hearted attempt at it). This isn't, as the cover claims, a movie of action. Sit back, relax, and let your mind switch off. That's how to enjoy this film. In the inimitable style that brought us other pseudo-historical films, Hammer has ensured that our time and money is not wasted. It's certainly worth the wait to see the bladed chariot of death. Please don't try to praise this film, or even attempt to call it a classic. It's a joyful romp through the English countryside with an attractive blond, a wicked high priest, and a Machavellian second-in-command. Enjoy!
