A band of Vikings are stranded behind enemy lines on the coast of Alba as their longboat goes down in a dreadful storm. Their only chance of survival is to find a path to the Viking settlement, Danelagh, traversing an unfamiliar and hostile land they have never known. The journey becomes a race for their lives when the King of Alba sends his most feared mercenaries after them. But when the Vikings meet a kind Christian Monk who preaches with his sword, the hunters become the hunted as the Vikings set deadly traps, mercilessly decimating their pursuers one by one, culminating in a final and deadly encounter.

Good Period Entertainment; Fans of Viking Lore Will Love it
7 March 2015 | by DareDevilKidSee all my reviews

Reviewed by: Dare Devil Kid (DDK)

Rating: 3.7/5 stars

Excellent Viking film. A few, and strictly just a few representations might be historically, culturally, or factually inaccurate, but when a movie is this entertaining, all is forgiven. Pay a deaf ear to the naysayers and give it a shot. You'll be blown away by the pulsating action and the highly intense drama.

And yeah, "Merlin" alumnus and current star of the TV show "Black Sails", Tom Hopper, displays the necessary chutzpah and body language to pass of as a believable lead in a period action film.
