3.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting something more, 27 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Hammer of the Gods [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
The writer of this movie must be an aficionado of quest type computer games like 'Baldur's Gate' because that is what this film is like. A group of warriors wandering the countryside on a quest, encountering odd characters to interact with and bad guys to kill. Apart from telling you that they are on a quest for a dying king to find his previously banished oldest son that's the movie in a nutshell.
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.
