Editorial Reviews

Britain, 871 AD - A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar's epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne.

As a fan of all things "Viking" I took the plunge and payed the $9.99 rental fee.

The best part of the film is the casting.
Ivan Kaye does a great job portraying a pederast Ivar the Boneless. While I don't agree with the direction the film took with the character, Kaye pulls off the role very well. Viewers may recognize Kaye as King Aella from History Channel's "Vikings" television series.
Another veteran from History Channel's "Vikings" is Clive Standen as Hagen, the main character's closest companion. In History Channel's series Standen plays Ragnar's brother Rollo and Standen pulls off the look and temperament of a Viking in this film just as well.
James Cosmo plays as King Bagsecg and although he gets little screen time he steals every scene where he plays the main character's bitter, dying, father. Viewers may recognize him from "Game of Thrones" where Cosmo portrays Jeor Mormont.
Game of Throne's Alexandra Dowling also makes an appearance as Anges. In this role she is underutilized and tends to be just the "pretty face" in the background.
Finlay Robertson plays the main character's scheming brother Harald. Some might recognize him from the BAFTA award winning episode "Blink" from BBC's "Doctor Who" television series.
Unfortunately, The Vampire Diaries' Charlie Bewley does not do quite so well in making us care about his role as the main character, Steinar. Not saying his acting is bad just that he seems miscast in the role.

This movie is very predictable. Lots of action and violence.

Some of the production choices a cringingly bad: in an early fight sequence we are introduced to the main characters by freeze frame portraits of them with their names emblazoned in a giant rock-like font.

A king with four sons is dying, The King needs a successor, but whom should it be, which son? Each has different attributes and qualities, which the story reveals to the audience. I cared about the characters and what happened to them during their adventure. For me that's a winner. This movie has suspense, intrigue, injustice and justice along with a few surprises.

I enjoyed "The Hammer of the Gods" because it's an exciting movie with complex characters, vivid setting, good plot, and a nice musical score (the whole nine yards). I could watch it again and again. Oh, Charlie Bewley's haircut in this movie is simply beautiful!

I am a huge lover of historical & sword & sorcery movie's & found this to be a fun action filled period piece that was historically accurate enough to enjoy the costumes & weapon's. It also has a interesting twist that makes what could have been an over used plot into a visually stunning adventure worth the watch. And its always fun to see Celts painted in their notorious blue woad designs. I also loved to see the Great Sword used with half swording techniques. As a matter of fact the fight scenes were choreographed better than the genre's average fight scenes. With colorful characters{ some literally} graphic battles & a all or nothing quest this is a great way to spend a couple hours on a rainy day.

"You don't know what you are, but you will." After refusing to kill an innocent boy, Steinar (Bewley) is passed over for king for his brother. When he turns out to not be a good leader the kingdom begins to lose order. The people of the kingdom look to Steiner to help them. He sets out looking for his brother Hakan who everyone thinks can restore order. Along the way Steinar begins to change and becomes the man his father was hoping for. I have never really been a big fan of the 300 type movies. I'm not sure why but the whole mid-evil genre just doesn't do it for me. That said, this movie wasn't really that bad and is worth seeing but when there is no action going on the movie really begins to slow down and I start to lose interest. There is enough action to keep you watching though, but the movie really starts to feel flat about a half hour in and never really picks itself back up. Fans of this genre may like this but I thought it was just a little too slow to stay fully interested in. Overall, another 300 rip off that feels flat. I give it a C+.

King Bagsecg (James Cosmo) is on his death bed. He tasks his son Steinar (Charlie Bewley) to find his older brother Hakan (Elliot Cowan) who had been banned. Steinar travels with a group of men to find Ivar (Ivan Kaye) who may know his whereabouts. Steinar has a brother (Finlay Robertson) and half brother(Theo Barklem-Biggs), neither of which are warriors.

Ivar prefers the companionship of young boys. The film utilizes grindhouse style in its introductions and fighting. Both the Vikings and Saxons have British accents. I thought the Vikings had thicker accents. There were numerous anachronisms in the speech, slang, and general ideology. The ending of the film had me scratching my head as it turns into a bizarre apocalyptic Mad Max scene.

I do not consider this a pseudo history in the same vein as the others that have been released, it is too far off the track.

Makes for an odd historical rental.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, nudity, no sex.
