In the midst of time comes the clanging of steel against steel, a collision of myth, history and fiction.... "Vikingdom". Loosely based on Viking legends and the epic poems they left as record, combined with a creative interpretation "Vikingdom" is a fantasy, action adventure about a forgotten king, Eirick, who was tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the God of Thunder. Thor is on a mission to gather the key ancient relics - "Mjolnir" - his hammer from Valhalla, "Necklace of Mary Magdalene" from Mitgard and the "Horn" from Helheim. This needs to be accomplished before the Blood Eclipse, which happens once every 800 years, failing which, the pagan Viking Gods will never be able to rule and conquer mankind ever again. Only one man can stop him... Eirick, the undead.

"Vikingdom", the title had the word "Viking" on it and being a Viking movie fan I just had to see it. What can I say? Worst computer generated graphics I ever saw, the movie is all made with computer landscapes/scenery and that could be good if well made ("300", "Sword of Xanten") but it failed miserably. The color palette seems to only have 3 colors at times, red, greed and white. The actors seem to have been cut down from paper (yes, it is that bad). That could fit the main actor role Dominic Purcell since he has the acting skills of a cardboard, or should I say a piece of wood. I noticed this in previous movies of him and this one just confirms it. Also, whats up with the native American look? I can't decide if I'm seeing a native American playing a viking, or if they tried to give him some kind of a ridiculous "Conan the Barbarian" look. Speaking of looks, what's up with Thor with his plastic hammer? Surprisingly Thor plays the part of the bad guy here (constantly in bad temper) but he wears a plastic hammer and has the strength of a normal guy. In fact his strength either is capable of blowing up doors (dynamite style) or he wrestles the main actor in a equal match... Thor's hammer is famous in myth and history of being a magical object that ONLY Thor could lift.... how come the main character can lift it in the end? The film is a constant mess, ridiculous characters, ridiculous plot and scenery, the movie editing is confusing to say the least, fake bears in some cuts, a dragon with just a head and legs (no budget for the body?), Asian guys kicking around, total garbage. Special effects looks like animated gifs, editing looks like it was made by a 5 year old, I couldn't stop but laugh all the way till It wasn't funny anymore and I had to fast forward on many scenes. This is an insult to every Viking movie ever made and to Viking culture. Actually this is more an insult to cinema than anything else. Avoid like the PLAGUE.
You will like this movie if you are 5-8 years old. Lousy cgi, cheap looking costumes, horrible dialogue, bad cinematography and a clichéd storyline. The overall casting was terrible as well. If you were expecting an intelligent, enjoyable, epic movie set in olden times, you will be extremely disappointed. Vikingdom should be classified as comedy instead of action or adventure. I'd rather be forced to watch Twilight all over again. That's how bad it is. This film is absolutely unwatchable.
Low cost set, no effects, BUT you made me laugh about the "dragon" that looks like a paper mache tadpole. I just wasted my time watching this movie. REALLY This is the first rubbish film i watch in 2013! The movie is trying to disgrace THOR? FTW? i just recently heard it came from malaysia? I really can't understand how did the film cost up to $15million, It certainly looks a LOW BUDGET FILM. You will laugh if you visit youtube trailer. THE COMMENTS ARE DISABLED lols wonder why? I BET to many negative comments they can't handle :P Don't watch don't download don't waste your time please its a very frustrating movie. p.s. actors looks like they are on steroids or something
I have always been into fantasy and i really enjoyed this movie. I was going into it expecting it to be a terrible movie but they actually did a good job with what they used and how they used it in the movie. I can't understand at all someone giving this movie a 1 out of a 10 saying it's the worst movie they seen. Who ever gives this a 1 hasn't seen a lot of movies, on top of that the few movies they have probably seen have been only Oscar winners and 300 million dollar budget Hollywood block busters. I could never call this a bad movie, I've seen 10's or thousands of movies and i can tell ya, I have seen some 1 out of 10 truly bad movies in my life time, but this one I give them credit for putting the work they put into it with what they had to make it into what looked like they were most shooting for. A wild viking fantasy with sword play, fighting and magic. Yes there are a hell of a lot better movies but i was pleasantly surprised and cheered me up on a sick night. You just have to accept it for what it is.
A Lot of posters here are giving the Thumbs down for 'cheesiness' or 'Not as Good' or 'Wasted effort'...but negative reviews because something didn't knock you off your feet in the first 10 minutes is easy. One-- This ain't a Hollywood production...but the creators put effort into the story, the set, and the action. The fight/battle scenes were actually very well choreographed and never looked 'hokey'. You can actually see the swords cutting open wounds. And remember, this is Live Action...everything isn't Anime, after all! Two-- This isn't a Movie out of the Christian Ethos, which makes this stand out when you see it for what it is, a story set in ANOTHER Mythic circle, that of the Norse Gods. It's done in the same vein as that classic 'Jason and the Argonauts'-- so the story is being told in the manner of a Mythic Tale or 'Epic Fable'. There's a little 'stiffness' involved in the dialogue and the characterizations, but it doesn't go into 'stupid' or 'cheap'. Three-- The special effects aren't in the range of the Multi-million dollar Hollywood productions...but what they managed was in character and fitting to the story. I especially like the 'Hel' sequence. All in all, This is a Good, Entertaining fantasy movie of decent length in the 'Epic Quest' category. An extra star for the respectful treatment it gives us of the Norse Mythic Ethos. Weirdly enough, this movie is best for a nice, quiet Sunday Night.
