Quotes

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.

Better than I thought it would be after reading these reviews!
1 July 2013 | by steeledanSee all my reviews

I don't understand the rating this movie has on here right now! This movie is as good as sooo many movies in this genre with much better scores. (i.e. Kingdom of Heaven, King Arthur, Robin Hood, etc...)

Yes, okay, the casting choices weren't great (the main actors were great, although unknown, but the female roles were all poorly cast)and the story was, a little, thin, but this movie gains points from me for it's atheist message.

It was also shot very cool and the soundtrack was AWESOME. I hope the success of this film encourages more independent style period pieces in a market dominated by the big companies.
