Product Description

In an untamed, primordial America, 500 years before Columbus will reach its shores, unfolds an epic battle between love and hate that will change one man

Amazon.com

Pathfinder is a curious, cross-genre movie with elements of horror, sword-clanging fantasy, historical fiction, and Native American mysticism. A classic story of an outsider-hero, Pathfinder is set approximately five centuries before Columbus’ arrival in the New World, a time when Vikings were claiming real estate in Greenland and eastern North America. A young Norse boy is abandoned by his disapproving, conqueror-father and adopted by an aboriginal tribe. He grows up to become Ghost (Karl Urban), almost-but-not-entirely accepted by natives, yet a fierce swordsman and defender of Indians after a terrible assault on those whom he loves best. Clancy Brown (The Shawshank Redemption) plays the fiercest of the invaders, a merciless leader who tangles with Ghost’s inherent prowess as a fighter, and engages in a psychological as well as physical struggle with him in the film’s final third, which involves a harrowing journey through an avalanche-prone mountain path. Russell Means (The Last of the Mohicans) is a typically comforting presence as the all-wise Pathfinder, leader of a tribal nation and Ghost’s supporter, while Moon Bloodgood (Eight Below) is outstanding as a love interest with nerves of steel. Marcus Nispel (who directed the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) guides the brutal if often exhilarating action as if it were amplified history. He makes the point for a contemporary audience that Vikings were as terrifying a danger to those whom they conquered as, say, Klingons are in Star Trek--precisely by making his Vikings seem so reminiscent of Klingons. --Tom Keogh

Recently I saw this Movie on TV!! I'm surprised at the negative reviews here, truly I am! When you give a negative review on the basis of it "not being historically acurate", this is really a little ridiculous ! I think I have _yet_ to see an American movie that I can actually _praise_ for it's Historical accuracy, but that doesn't stop me from watching them, and yet most of the reviewers here seem tumble over themselves in regard to this movie. Perhaps historical accuracy would make boring movies ?? Still I love History. I give it 5 stars for being different to the run of the mill action movie, well played, visually very engaging, and unusual also I had a feeling of having enjoyed watching something really different for a change !

I have to agree with another writer here, that the thought also crossed my mind about Vikings falling for *thin ice* and also them not knowing anything about *avalanches*, that really was a bit silly. But other than that - really entertaining. I've seen hundreds if not thousands of films in my life, but I think this movie "Pathfinder" will linger in my mind for a while yet, so from me, a "well done!" to the makers, and the cast for bringing forth an entertaining and original movie, wide from the run of the mill !! I'd love to see these same people tackle an Icelandic, Norwegian or Swedish Saga with the same gusto. If Historically accurate were entered more into the picture, I'm sure it would run well indeed. Those interested might like a read in a book by Snorri Sturluson ? A scholar on the subject.

The historical question is not whether the Vikings came to North America but rather how far South they came once they made it to Vinland (a Norse settlement has been found on the island of Newfoundland). There must have been interactions between the Norsemen and the "skrælingar" (Native Americans), and while there is no evidence that the two races engaged in a violent confrontation it does make a neat idea for a movie, which is why we have the film "Pathfinder: The Legend of the Ghost Warrior." Ghost is a young boy who is left behind after a previous Vikings raid and who grows up eighteen years later to be played by Karl Urban (Eomer in The Lord of the Rings" but also Julius Caesar on "Xena Warrior Princess"). When another Viking raiding party led by Gunnar (Clancy Brown) attacks his village, Ghost leads the fight against the invaders, hoping not only to save his adopted people but also win the heart of Starfire (Moon Bloodgood).

Basically what he have here is "Vikings and Indians" instead of "Cowboys and Indians." Couching the film in such terms, of course, is easily understood but not politically correct. But if you think about the latter in contemporary sports terms, the idea of the Minnesota Vikings taking on the Cleveland Indians is certainly in the ballpark for a key dynamic of this film, which features armored warriors against people armed with essentially sticks and stones.

The Pathfinder DVD

The Pathfinder is about a Norse/Viking boy around twelve years old who was abandoned or shipped wrecked on the coast of (I'm guessing Canada) where an young Indian woman finds him and adopts him into the tribe. He, of course, is not accepted by the tribe and has to fight to obtain recognition.

Without giving too much, away this move is full of action. Combining elements of Conan the Barbarian - Collector's Edition,Beowulf (Unrated Director's Cut), ]]Rambo First Blood Part II, 300 (Two-Disc Special Edition), and [[ASIN:6304696531 Jeremiah Johnson. Whew, a good movie for action movie fans.

Highly recommended for fans of for action movies, Conan the Barbarian, Beowulf, Rambo First Blood Part II, the 300, and Jeremiah Johnson.

One of my all time favorite movies. I have a Norse heritage and found this movie was very entertaining and brought forth the ruthless nature of the vikings and the norse culture... I sit with my kids and we are glued to the screen during the action scenes and I can also talk with them about history and culture.

I streamed this movie and it did not have to stop one time to buffer and the quality was just a good as a DVD.

I stream almost all of my movies due to convenience and I like that Amazon has almost all of the newer titles without all the hassle...

A young Viking, the lone survivor of his family, is raised by Indians (the feather kind) and named Ghost. Later, as a young man, Ghost (Karl Urban), more adversity follows with his adoptive family (poor guy), which in flicks like this, of course, means revenge time! But wait, his original Viking people were responsible for this! Will that stop Ghost? Hint: Much bloodshed (especially in the Unrated version) follows, lots of bloodshed! Oh, and did I mention there's lots of bloodshed? Urban (resembling a distant cousin of Brad Pitt who has perhaps skipped a few workouts) plays the hell out of his role, with plenty of action sequences, though much are attributable to CGI and don't rise above this genre's norm. But, as sword-and-sorcery flicks go, you could do much worse.
