Unfortunately for me this movie was a little disappointing. It lacked a high level of technical fighting that modern movie goers expect and the character development was a little light as well. Overall, the movie had a very 1990s feel to it however it was entertaining in a 'I really don't have anything else to do' kind of way. A 1.5/5 from me.

Imagine TV's The Vikings with a twist and you won't be disappointed, but the biggest heroics on show here are in the budget-stretching department.

It's hardly high art, but for a cheapjack homegrown action flick this is surprisingly solid.

A sense of humour and some pyrotechnically gory skirmishes enliven this tale of a Viking in hostile Saxon terrain

A bloody-knuckled fightfest, back-dropped by the beautiful Welsh countryside, this defies its budget to bring a little epic to Viking Britain.
