The scene where Will is sent back in time to a viking raid was originally longer. Will was did not arrive in the middle of the raid but arrived moments before the vikings attacked, spotting them sneaking towards the village and having time to realize what was going to happen. The vikings and the villagers where mostly played by re-enactors who brought their own costumes. As it happens, actor Alexander Ludwig later found great success playing the viking Bjorn Ironside in History Channel's series Vikings. See more »

Rarely have I been so disappointed, I actually walked out of this film half way through, not caring how they end this debacle. With such a rich text to draw from, this movie could have been awesome, the plot is pathetic, the characterisation all wrong, the dialogue clichéd drivel, what were they thinking.
Why they had to change the setting away from Celtic countries & Saxon mythology I have no idea. The whole heart & soul is missing from the story.
Everyone involved in the production of this film should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves, they've chipped away at a cherished bit of thousands of peoples childhood memories by squeezing out this arse-gravy onto celluloid.
