Storyline

In ancient times, there were seven sacred scrolls believed to grant power and prosperity to those who possessed them. Prophecy told that a child born in pure Royal blood would one day harness power and rule over the nations. As men fought to claim the scrolls, Europe was pushed to the brink of war. In order to maintain peace, a Celtic King, the Father of a pure blood child, obtained the scrolls and gave them to the Christian Council for safe keeping. As word of the King's actions spread, a warlord hell - bent on finding the scrolls murdered him in cold blood. And so, the King's Daughter, like the scrolls, was taken into hiding until the day that the prophecy could be fulfilled. Written by Mohawk

An escapable legacy
4 April 2018 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

Expectations admittedly were not high watching 'Viking Legacy'. It didn't look good and part of me was starting to grow tired of seeing so many idea wastes and poorly done low-budget films (believe it or not there are watchable and more ones out there which is why they still get checked out rather than avoided). Watched 'Viking Legacy' anyway out of curiosity and because the idea was not bad, Vikings can be interesting too.

You would not think that the idea was not bad, because the story execution certainly is that and that is putting it lightly. 'Viking Legacy' is so poorly done that it has put me off watching low-budget films out of curiosity and completest sake for the time being and being increasingly nervous about watching films with decent or more concepts going for them with so many seen recently executing them poorly.

'Viking Legacy' has nothing going for it. The lead actress is attractive and cute but the same cannot be said for her acting skills. Which is pretty much the same passionless and emotionless standard of the acting with no exceptions, except some fare worse than others. That the lead actress is one of the better performers and still be far from good says a lot about the low quality of the acting.

They do have to work, but make no effort to rise above the problems, with uncharismatic, wimpy and annoying characters and really toe-curling in the worst of ways dialogue. As well as non-existent direction.

Direction that fails to convey any urgency, tension, fun, suspense or emotion in the numerous scenes that need them. The action scenes are the complete anti-thesis of exciting, are poorly filmed and looks so awkward in the choreography. The whole story is just lifeless and on the wrong side of daft that it's insultingly ridiculous.

Moreover, it's yet another cheap-looking films, with an overuse of truly risible special effects that never gels with the setting or looks real, dizzying camera work and editing and shoe-string budget production and costume design. The music is the least bad asset, but that is not really an endorsement when it's very memorable and not always used appropriately.

Overall, not worth watching...by any stretch. 1/10 Bethany Cox
