4.0 out of 5 stars A solid medieval action film 14 Jan 2014
By Matthew
Whilst this film clearly has a low budget it doesn't over stretch it's self and it does what it does very well. It has strong acting and costumes. The film is mostly set in woodland so we aren't subjected to any unconvincing sets. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoyed films like Ironclad (2011) or the Black Death (2010). I would definitely watch this one again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extremely interesting. 26 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I know this film was made on a shoestring budget, as it was made by my nephew, and I was most impressed with the atmosphere and
the story told was pretty accurate. I would recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars ''I am Hereward of Northumbria!'' 12 Jan 2014
By Huscarl
What a thrilling find this one was. After recently watching (it that's the right expression) 'Hammer of the Gods' and finding it one of the worst films I've ever had the misfortune to witness, I was hesitant to return so quickly to the 'Viking' genre, except this isn't strictly speaking a Viking film, they are in it, in fact they are the bad guys chasing our hero's down but the hero's themselves are Anglo-Saxon (Englisc/Anglecynn are actually how our English ancestors described themselves, the term 'Anglo-Saxon' coming later into popular usage.) Straight away, this fact sets 'Darkest Day' apart from the bargain-bin two-bob horned Viking films out there.

We join a young Monk named Hereward (Marc Pickering), his older tutor named Father Ęthelstsan (Christopher Godwin) and a grizzled Wessex warrior going by the name Ęthelwulf (Mark Lewis Jones) - who all give excellent performances, as they protect the Lindisfarne Gospels on the journey to Iona after the Norse have ransacked the Northumbrian island in 793, heralding the beginning of the 'Viking age' on this island of Britain.

The opening statement of the film is actually a mistake, although an understandable one - one version of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles does indeed give the date for the attack on Lindisfarne as 8th January 793, although most experts such as Michael Swanton, see this as 8th July 793 which would have made for calmer sailing conditions on the North Sea, and is also the date given in the 'Annals of Lindisfarne'.
The opening scene itself is ethereal and sceince-fiction like with an eerie, otherworldly feel as the naked and sobbing monks are herded by the Nordic incomers.

5.0 out of 5 stars A History well produced. 1 July 2014
By Paul M.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Now the first thing to say is forget what you see on the cover. Why or who, never mind the WHAT produced a cover that has nothing to do with the film. Apart from the main figure who in the film is not a very nice Viking at all. This film is for its cost very well shot, uses people and setting to the maximun effect. It is no Gladiator, its not meant to be. It tells a story of how when the "men from the sea" came calling to what was one of our most important holly sites, and what happened. For those of you who want dragons and vast cgi armys doing battle with hordes of monsters cascading down from a volcano.....this aint for you.
If you want a well filmed, well acted and strong character film were people have actually thought about this important story and I for one think has deliverd that story then enjoy it.

I thought this would have legs ........... it did, right out the door, what a shocker of a film. I was so looking forward to this but was extremely disappointed with a cast of less than 10 trying to portray a Viking invasion of the North East of England ... could have been so much better

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the money
Stilted, slow paced and cringe worthy.
Not a patch on other Viking movies or the recent Vikings series with Travis Fimmel.
Published 26 days ago by Anna Mc
3.0 out of 5 stars Intersting Rather Than Scintillating
Steady performances and authentic looking settings but it is important to note that there is little historical fact to the story itself. That said still worthy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not watch this movie
We had low expectations but were attracted by the concept of lindesfarne and Vikings. This is the lowest budget movie with the worst script that we have ever come across. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright I suppose.
A bit predictable and to be honest I nodded off at one point. It tried too hard to shock and the story didn't really have me sitting on the edge of my seat. Read more
