An unbearably stupid exercise in gore that deserves to die the same cruel, soulless death that nearly every character does at some point in the film.

Hammer of the Gods steals freely from a number of modern action films, but the fact that it is so misguided and fares so poorly is another thing entirely.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Hammer of the Gods avoids any real risks and lacks in distinct innovation.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Barely one step above a middling Game of Thrones fan-film, albeit executed with little of the passion that this would imply.

If it's gratuitous Saxon violence you're after then you've come to the right place.

So Hammer of the Gods is that most unexpected and unlikely of films, a Viking Apocalypse Then - but while it is an enjoyable enough romp, trying to out-hammer the impact of Coppola's masterpiece is as foolhardy as challenging the gods themselves.

Dumb and dreary but ultimately hard to hate.

Pointlessly graphic and absolutely ridiculous, Hammer of the Gods is a poorly attended LARP event crossed with basic cable fantasy filmmaking standards.

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.

This is what happens when your Lord of the Rings cosplay gets overrun by Method stuntmen.

[Blu-ray Review] This Blu-ray disc of "Hammer of the Gods" looks aesthetically beautiful, brought to life in all its moody, fog-drenched glory. My only wish is that the film itself was better.

There's an abundance of hand-to-hand medieval combat violence but not much else in this absurdly macho action saga.

A nasty, brutal and relatively short entertainment, aimed at middle-of-the-woad Conanists.

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

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

In spite of the Apocalypse Now-lite finale and the variety of cliche checks along the way, there's something remarkably earnest about the whole affair.

Like Game of Thrones crossed with Braveheart but stripped of most of the budget, this scrappy film tells an intriguing story without the usual Hollywood bombast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The low-budget production values and a rather messy Game of Thrones meets Braveheart script might make this film feel extremely corny, but at least it tries to tell an interesting story without the usual Hollywood bombast.
