Product description

The Viking warrior, King Thorsson, sets out to conquer the mysterious Bear Island that is supposedly the lair of a mythical half-man, half-beast creature cursed by the Norse God, Odin.

But the king is betrayed by Sven, the cowardly, power-hungry heir to the throne and his men are slaughtered and he is captured by the monster. Freya (Jane March) the king s beautiful daughter and fearless fighter, embarks on a quest to bring him home, preparing to sacrifice herself for the good of her kingdom and the life of her father.

Quite disappointed with this DVD particularly as I had purchased it on the previous revewer's recommendation. How do you make a purchase of a DVD if you haven't seen the film inititially? So, having read the glowing review I took the plunge and purchased it.

The whole film is amateurish, all the Vikings are clean shaven and look extremely well fed, the costumes look as if they have just been dry cleaned and pressed. The monster, sadly, looks like a man in an ill fitting bear suit.

The Viking dining hall is pristine, not a speck of dust anywhere and the battleaxes, swords and knives have a sort of aluminium/rubbery appearance.

The story line itself is pretty good, the cast do a good job, the actors/actresses are clearly giving it their best, somebody has spent quite a lot of money on the costumes, scenery, Viking boat etc but the whole production has something lacking. As the previous reviewer said, the film does give a good view of how the characters within Beauty & The Beast felt, but that in itself is not sufficient to lift the overall calibre of this production.

Target audience was obviously adults but it should be more justifiably directed at the 8 - 11 age group.

All in all it could have been a lot worse but there again it could have lot better!

This film is a very different version of Beauty and the Beast but shows more about the feelings of the main characters. I really enjoyed this and I recommened this to everyone!

4.0 out of 5 stars It is a love story, with Vikings as the involved people 17 Oct. 2011
By J. Munyon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Released in 2009, filmed in South Africa, rated PG-13, and running an hour-and-a-half; "Blood of Beasts" is not exactly the same as several other Viking movies, or like several other adventure / Sci-Fi / drama / love stories / horror films - however, it isn't all that different either. I like to see Viking films use obviously Viking descendant people (check the names in the credits), and have always appreciated when films are made about a unique ethnicity, why not let that ethnicity be genuinely represented. It isn't so much my forte to critique a movie based upon other films that closely have a similar theme or action sequences. Having said all that, I will admit I liked this film, not so much due to the leading heroine's thespian ability (there is no female nudity, I speak here of acting technique insulated from exploitation), and not because of the strength of any character elsewhere in the film. I liked it because of the costuming, the sets, and the sense of authenticity IMHO for life of that time period, and because of the insertion of mythical magic and ancient beliefs. The ending is more along keeping with how it would have gone had I been the courageous Viking warrior who truly adored the king's daughter. The Viking who intends to sit upon the throne is well played in this story too, because most people with that level of ambition rarely have the qualifications to merit achieving it. The strength of this film is the mysterious creature, and the arena on the island feared by legend. Instead of gauging this film upon other films, I encourage viewers to consider this film on its own merit, separate from anything similar of any consequence. Then you might enjoy Jane March portraying Freya, Candice Hillebrand as Ingrid, and how easy it is to hate the character portrayed so well by William Gregory Lee and how easy it is to empathize with Agnar's curse as the beast portrayed by David Dukas. For most viewers, this will be nothing more than a B-movie (or Z-movie even), but for me I actually like this film except for how hard the producer(s) / writer(s) labored to make the men lily-livered cowards so the heroine could seem that much more brave and valiant. Not much reality kept close to the bone in that regard, but the story requires it, and it is symbolic primarily of the respect and love the daughter had for her father, the king. Didn't notice a lot of unnecessary cussing, there isn't any female nudity, and the violence / gore is kept very, very low key. This is a love story after all, not a war epic. In fact, the other big thing I like about this film is that it doesn't include the savagery and brutal slaughter of innocent people in a land being conquered, raped, and pillaged. I'll view other films of Vikings if I want to see that. This is a love story, regardless of whether or not the viewer agrees with how it ends up.
5.0 out of 5 stars Good escapist fun for a rainy afternoon. 20 Nov. 2013
By Leo Hott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I am generous with my ratings of films. For me they don't all have to be block buster academy award winning film's with a budget that could heal the national debt. I can give a 5 star rating to a B-budget film if it works & by that I mean if it entertains me, Makes me feel emotions or makes me think or just have fun. This beauty & the beast tale set in the Viking age accomplished entertaining me for an hour or so & I love that genre so there you go. If your a fan of sword & sorcery or Vikings than you might find this movie fun & worth getting it to bulk up your collection. If your looking for academy award winning acting & billion dollar special effects you might want to pass. ,I feel they succeeded in entertaining me throughout the film with the budget they had so I was happy to add it to my collection for the price it was offered at. If I were an armchair critic I could have picked it apart but in this genre I'm just looking for an hour or two of escapist fantasy & this film provides that.
2.0 out of 5 stars Beauty and the Beast: The Viking Version 3 Mar. 2012
By Nelson Templar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is just a new retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story set in the Viking world. The acting, writing and overall design of the movie is just bad. It's just like watching a bad movie on the Sci-Fi Channel. The ONLY reason I bought this movie is because I am a fan of the Beautiful Jane March. If you are a fan of Hers then get it, but if you are not then don't waste your money.
