When the leader of the Wolves is killed, it's by the Monk's staff, and he sinks into the moor. In the next shot, when the group is crossing the moor, the Monk is seen with the staff, yet at the "last stand" moment, he is weaponless, as seen by Jorund tossing him one of his knives. See more »

Good old fashioned action
This is a must see for all those who like sword&sandal movies. The plot is too simple. The story could have been a little more with twists and subplots, not to mention a more detailed characterization. You have a bunch of northmen who are on hostile turf, but the problem is you just don't care when someone is mortally wounded and about to die. There isn't enough of a background story, the history of all the characters, why are they the way they are, their motivations. As a viewer you are left wondering...but not in a good way. The action scenes and also the location are pretty much the only things that save the film. It's always entertaining to watch a well done fighting scene at least for me. One more thing the actors are easy on the eyes, which is another plus. Go see it.
