Movie Info

When his father does not return from the Norse colony in Vinland (Greenland) for years and years, warrior son Thorvald (Lee Majors) organizes an expedition to find him. He and his co-commander Ragnar (Cornel Wilde) arrive and swiftly discover that King Eurich (Mel Ferrer) and his company were abducted by Native Americans and taken to neighboring lands. With the help of a friendly tribal princess, and the comical assistance of the Norse shaman "Death Dreamer" (Jack Elam), Thorvald is able to locate and battle the tribesmen for the life of his father.

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Even Mel Brooks couldn't have improved on it: hilarious dialogue, eccentrically filmed battle scenes, Cornel Wilde and Mel Ferrer both in beards behind which to hide their embarrassment.

Top Critic

A stodgy 11th-century drama, featuring Majors in the starring role.

TV Guide

An unconvincing, stilted adventure with a very '70s looking Lee Majors cast as a Viking leading his men into the New World while searching for his missing father. A low-budget AIP cheesefest that, at least, isn't as boring as 2007's Pathfinder.
