When I read the review of another reviewer, I thought he might have been exaggerating a bit in regard to the costumes. Nope. From Thor's neon pinkish/red/copper (it changes color) beard and hair to Frey's (not Freya's) bright canary yellow chiffon dress (yes, he wore a woman's dress) to a wizard with weeds growing out of him and a female sidekick in a black leather bikini top in arctic weather.....these costumes and makeup are so bizarre in this movie it detracts from it immensely. One of the worst is the hot pink Barbie sword worn by the hero's brother, the current King in his purple gettup. Those were just a few examples.....

The hero, Eric Bloodletter, has a flat affect throughout the entire movie. He just kinda stares off into space. He seems like he has a hangover and feels really bad. Monotone, no emotions and just seems to be going along for the ride. Even Eric's zombie father showed more emotions than this guy (not joking).

Eric's friend, played by Craig Fairbrass, an English actor, is the only person in this movie with any real acting skills. He looks, sounds and acts the part well. I feel somewhat sorry for Mr. Fairbrass being associated with this movie. Mr. Fairbrass, you should deny being in this movie and have your name removed from the credits. However, if there is any saving grace, it is that they did not make you run around in a dress nor flamboyant attire like some of the other actors. The motherland may allow you to come back home.

The movie also has Viking zombies, of which Eric's dad is the head zombie.....but we come to find out later Eric's parentage is somewhat complex and unclear and a bit unsavory.

We also find some actors in the movie somewhat overweight, aged and unable to fulfill the roll of a Viking warrior.

An interesting attempt to make an action adventure flick about Vikings. Supposedly based on folklore and poems, the plot is a typical quest. Eirick (Dominic Purcell) is supposed to get some ancient relics before Thor does or there will be hell to pay. Lots of freeze-frame-slow-mo action sequences to punctuate an otherwise dull story that plods along, made even worse thanks in large part to Purcell’s comatose acting. His work here is effortless, meaning he put in absolutely no effort whatsoever. It is painfully obvious from the outset that he didn’t want to do this movie. “My story begins the day I died.” Cue a close-up of Purcell acting dead and somewhere along the way he got confused and played dead for the remainder of this movie.

If you like stunt work, this movie offers plenty of that. Expect anything other than that, let the buyer beware.

Take note, gentle warriors: highbrow critics have always been quick (and first) to dismiss the validity of the fantasy film. Why? Well, there are possibly scores of reasons that range from “it simply wasn’t my cup of tea” all the way up to “I have trouble taking anything with elves seriously.” For the most part, I’ve always thought the critical intelligentsia find fault with anything that reduces the narrative to the simplest common denominator: the classical adventure of good triumphing over evil. Critics tend to get lost in the nuances of performance because they find themselves particularly fascinated with shades of gray while the rest of us live by the kinder, nobler standard of “entertain us.” We want action. We want heroes. We want escape. And we’ll happily tolerate a hint of romance amongst the testosterone.

Might I recommend VIKINGDOM? For all of its weaknesses (sure, they’re there), it’s a good old-fashioned story of the man who against his best interests rises up to stand alongside his brother to do the right thing for all of mankind. Draped in B-movie sentimentality, it makes for a wonderfully cinematic experience some might mistake as a video game, and its vision is so grand you’ll be happy you stayed for the story.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and/or characters. If you’re the type of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I’d encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment.

I have read many of the reviews & find people either hated this or loved it! I think the people that hated it were a bit harsh & maybe didn't get it. This is a mash up of the Viking Saga's & Norse Mythology! There are some moments of real cinematic beauty & yes this is not going to win any Oscars or academy awards but for the budget it really delivers a lot of action & fun! The acting is not the greatest but certainly not the worst! If you are into sword & sorcery or have an affinity towards Vikings you will enjoy this movie. The colors are bold & vivid creating some striking images. The battle scenes are good & the movie was made using color, imagery & bold flights of fancy that give the movie a dreamlike feel, almost like a graphic novel set in motion. I don't judge movie's by their budget's but whether or not they deliver & for the low price I paid to own this brand new, I would say it succeeded & delivered on three different levels Action, imagery, & fun!!! If I were to pick out this movies worst part it is the monster that chases the hero out of hell...It reminded me of the old Japanese monsters ( Men in rubber monster suits) all psychodeliced out ! Which was surprising because the rest of the special effects aren't bad. This movie was not aiming for intense realism but a blending of the action & drama of the Norse Saga's with the dreamlike imagery of the Norse Myth's & I think it achieved exactly that causing the great division in the reviews!
