Did You Know?


The use of Vikings in the film is based on the misunderstanding by the filmmakers that the villains in the original Pathfinder (2007) were Vikings. The villains in that film were "Chuds", a lesser-known Fenno-Ugric people refered to by several early Russian, Slavic and Sami sources. See more »


The opening scene has text describing that Vikings were in America 600 years before Columbus. All archaeological evidence and the Viking sagas themselves place them in North America around 1000 A.D. give or take 3 or 4 years, thus only 500 years before Columbus, not 600. See more »

Not as bad as thought
18 April 2007 | by TheEmulator23See all my reviews

I know movies plain and simple. Was this great... no, but was it pretty mindless entertainment...yes. My main complaint was that the original villain Kurgan Clancy Brown from the Highlander movie was barely noticeable through all of the film. He had so much beard, helmet, paint, and just plain armor and you couldn't tell who he was. Only way I knew him was because of his voice and Eyes. One of his best underrated and too soon canceled programs the Showtime series "Carnivale" showed just how good he is at being bad but at the same time kinda good. Anyway back to the movie, it's main problem is the awful editing, It had some pretty decent action scenes but they just cut so quickly and you never get a hold on what you are seeing! My other complaint is that all the Indians speak English. I can understand this happening 20 years ago, but are we really that lazy that we can't read subtitles? Especially in this day in age, do we have to put all films in English? It sounds ridiculous and remember "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" did over 100 mil. U.S. and it was subtitled! The script also seemed repetitive sometimes as well. And whose Idea was it to not give the main character any lines 15 minutes into the movie? Well just don't ask too much of the film and it should be OK.
