From Amazon.co.uk

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 the arrival of Columbus 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

Format: DVD
Vikings arrive in North America but as they're too early for visitor attractions they go berserk amongst the local population instead. The bloodlust makes them forgetful and they manage to leave behind a small boy who is subsequently adopted by the natives, presumably to fill out the rapidly thinning population. The boy grows into manhood but despite talk of his destiny by the elders he is largely shunned and considered an outsider. He spends his time alone practicing with his sword. The Vikings return; their massive helmets on display for all to see. They do as Vikings do, you know the pillaging, the violence, capturing the slaves etc. Anyway the young fellow "Ghost" as the natives call him isn't having any of it, besides he's sweet on a wide eyed honey from the tribe so he wants to keep her safe. He dispatches the gang of malevolent bad guys amidst majestic scenery, and a first class musical score. Karl Urban is particularly good a portraying the innocent hero who must open up a can of slice and dice, Moon Bloodgood is effective as the love interest - she also has a particularly suspenseful action sequence and Clancy Brown can do head chopping Viking in his sleep. All in all this is a fun romp.

Pathfinder is a bloody yet beautiful movie with Karl Urban's character Ghost as a strong central character. Since you can read a synopsis of the film above, I won't go into details with the storyline, but just say that it brought tears to my eyes at times and it lingers. As a Dane I was quite curious to see how my ancestors were portraied - movies do tend to go a bit overboards with the Vikings;-)but some anachronisms apart, they remind me of the local hockey supporters so I'm okay with the way they come across on screen. And the fact that they speak Icelandic, which is the closest you get to the language we Scandinavians spoke at the time, is a nice touch. I have been eagerly awaiting this movie since I first heard about it, and I haven't been disappointed. The movie was featured at the Copenhagen International Film Festival in the shorter (cinema-)version, but I like this version better.

You can rely on mad Norsemen to do mad things - but make a belter of a movie may not be one of them...

"Pathfinder" divides lovers of sword and pillage lore. I thought it was good rather than great...and as some have said - just a little bit too silly in places...

If however you're a fan - note that the American 'Unrated' BLU RAY of this looker is REGION A LOCKED - so it won't play on our machines unless they're chipped to 'all regions' (which few are).

The 'Extended Version' is available in the UK (Region B). Stick with that one instead - and all that stupid Region Coding crap won't restrict your viewing pleasure...

By Jules TOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Nov. 2013
Format: DVD
In a fictional dark age, where Vikings raid Native American villages to exterminate them. A young boy, the son of a great Viking warrior, is captured by these Natives & raised as one of they're own. Now, that boy is a man, coinciding with the return of more Vikings. The worst imaginable outcome can only result with these heavily armoured brutes against the poorly equipped Natives. But, this time they are up against a more formidable foe, one of themselves, Ghost (Urban).

Overall, Pathfinder is a pretty decent film if your stuck for something to watch. It's main draw is the action & visuals, which are brilliant. The story itself isn't all that engaging, little dialogue , subtitles for the Viking language & very much relies on the actors facial emotions/expressions. Karl Urban's combination of athletics & intelligence as Ghost, makes watching him prepare the demise of his enemies all the more rewarding. The traps he uses to try & overcome the superior numbers he is against, is reminiscent of Arnold Schwarzenegger's attempts to kill the vastly stronger & better equipped Predator using his surroundings to his advantage. The Vikings themselves are visually impressive, standing tall making the natives look a bit hobbit like. Represented by lead pairing Ralf Moeller (Gladiator) as Ulfar. And Gunnar, the almost unrecognisable frame of Clancy Brown (Highlander) behind thick beard/hair & war paint, who can only be unmasked by the keenest eye in close up's. Make captivating foes. They are strong warriors, but aren't the smartest cookies, compared to Ghost.

Others have described this movie well enough already. My comment to add would be how visually rich, but too congested, this film is. The images are dense, so much so that it is hard for the eyes to find what is most pertinent in the film's frames as they pass. The prevailing black and white and sepia tones, with little other colour in evidence, contrast dark and clotted, do not help to clarify the images. There is a lot of "action" in all of this, and because of this visual congestion (or indigestion!) it is hard for the eyes to follow.

The plot pits wicked European males, this time the Vikings, against North America's "noble savages". It does make some sense, but the mix of legendary evocation with historical fantasy is not totally convincing. The acting is passable.

Enjoy this motion picture for what it has to offer, without being too hard on it. It is exciting and however dense things become, visually and narratively, the basic premises and story flow are clear enough for all of that.

NOTA BENE (late July 2013).

Recently I have acquired a DVD equipment which, among other improvements over my earlier player, is capable of playing DVDs in the P.A.L. (European) format. To celebrate that, I ordered several films that I long have wanted to obtain, but are available, at least for now, only in editions of DVD-P.A.L. One of them is "Ofelas = Pathfinder" (Kinowelt 500392), the original 1987 Scandanavian film on which the North American adaptation, made twenty years later in 2007, is based. It definitely was worth searching out. Some comments, as well as a modification in my review's title, are now in order!
