Violent motion picture about a brutal army of Vikings invading North America
A little boy is left in a strange land and he’s adopted by an Indian family. But a merciless, ambitious and cruel barbarians(Clancy Brown, Ralf Moeller, among them) suddenly appear and they are cruelly murdered . The starring(Karl Urban) observes the massacre from a distance and he manages to flee these murderers and reaches a village with other Natives whose inhabitants are worried if he has been able to hide his leads. Afraid of the violent savage warriors ,they decide to flee. Meanwhile the protagonist falls in love with a charming Native(Bloodgood). The young stays alone to revenge his families killers but he gets captured by the Vikings. Unfortunately , they get him before he can do anything and force him to lead them to the other Indians. He guides them and agrees to lead to the hiding place of his fellow villagers but he has a scheme to destroy the cutthroats barbarians before reach the camp.
It’s the second version based on ancient folk-tale from Lapland, the first and classic version was directed by Nils Gaup in 1988, winning several prizes. This new adaptation is an exciting picture plenty of action, thrills, chills, roller-coaster ride, violence and breathtaking fights. The brutal Vikings with horned helmets deliver the goods, their appearance is spectacular and creepy, including the majestic horses doing pirouettes. Furthermore the astonishing killings are gruesome executed and grisly graphic. Special mention to Russell Means , he was born Lakota Sioux, a good actor Native American, he along with Graham Greene, Rodney A Grant, Tantoo cardinal, Eric Schweitz and Wes Studi appear in all movies about Indian themes. The evil Vikings are characterized in similar style to the classic ‘Conan’ by John Milius, as when at the beginning appeared James Earl Jones in an unforgettable scenes . The sombre photography by Daniel Pearl with a sort of never-ending dawn and dusk time is truly awesome. It’s a kind of light mingled in a moody and foggy atmosphere. Many frames including the combats and cliffs scenes are made in a ¨300¨ style adding computer generator backgrounds. Stirring and evocative musical score by Jonathan Elias. Stunning and gripping realization by Marcus Nispel. He’s a video hits director and expert on terror genre such as he proved ¨ Friday the 13th, Frankestein, Texas chainsaw massacre¨ but none of his movies have been based on original plot.
Not a bad couple hours
Though it does not qualify as top-notch cinema it was an enjoyable watch.
Anyone that goes into this film thinking it was going to be a standard “Viking” movie will disappointed. It is a legend told from the point of view of the native population that lived in the north eastern part of north America. Thus the vikings are bigger, nastier, etc than what we might be used to. They are monsters. They look like it, and they act like it.
Others have mentioned that the natives are portrayed as weak, or stupid. Think of it from this point of view. These are the very first people they have ever encountered that use metal weapons, and wear metal armor. They have really no defense against them, but just like people all over Europe they fought the vikings in defense of their homes, and died.
Some great fight scenes, and panoramas, but it fails in the editing. The film is so dark that you lose track of things often, and cannot tell who is fighting, or how many there are.
The script is first grade, and I mean written at a first grade schoolchild’s level, but who goes to a b-movie actioner for great dialog? Overall I was a bit disappointed, but not so much that I felt the need to leave, or other such protest. It was a great idea poorly executed.
