Frequently Bought Together
Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, Hammer of the Gods is a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar's epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be -- the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne.

If you like fast paced action, violence and a great cast, you'll love it. Many of the cast went on to star in the excellent drama "Vikings" (this was made first) which just shows the quality assembled here.
With action from start to finish, twists and turns along the way, Stunning cinematography and direction, Hammer of the gods is well worth a watch. If you want big budget Hollywood floss, watch Troy. If you want red blooded British grit, watch Hammer of the Gods.
Hammer Of The Gods is a fantastic film and I'd recommend it to anyone. It's full of action right from the start and has a great climax too. A descent plot that sees the Vikings venturing into the land of the Saxons, with plenty of tension and lots of gore too. The way the Vikings and the Saxons look is quite new too, which I really enjoyed. It's great fun! The lead actor is also very easy on the eyes too - which always helps.
Well worth checking out!
There are no bad guys or good guys, just Vikings and Saxons with a slight nod to the incoming threat of Christianity.
The film looks gorgeous; I'm going to assume it was filmed in Wales because some scenes appear to have been spoken in Welsh, and the countryside is beautiful and well filmed. The characters all perform well and look authentically grubby, the violence is brutal and unremitting but the whole experience just left me feeling something was missing.
It was nice to see Alexandra Dowling who's part as Rosalyn Frey in Game of Thrones was so short and you'll spot some classic British actors here but unless you're into the aforementioned games or brutal violence it may leave you feeling the same way.
Ivar prefers the companionship of young boys. The film utilizes grindhouse style in its introductions and fighting. Both the Vikings and Saxons have British accents. I thought the Vikings had thicker accents. There were numerous anachronisms in the speech, slang, and general ideology. The ending of the film had me scratching my head as it turns into a bizarre apocalyptic Mad Max scene.
I do not consider this a pseudo history in the same vein as the others that have been released, it is too far off the track.
Makes for an odd historical rental.
