Shipwrecked Nords battle medieval Scottish hordes in this respectable multinational actioner.

It's hammer time - with sword and arrow too - before the film even establishes which side it's on.

July 30, 2015 | Full Review…

Every bloody Viking cliche in the book, save for SPAM, and singing about it.

As formulaic as it is monotonous.

Audience Reviews for Northmen: A Viking Saga


Like Centurion with a little Predator thrown in for good measure. It's simple and... honestly pretty bad, but it does satisfy a certain craving for this sort of film.

In a curious switch, an invading Viking horde set on doing the usual Viking activities and atrocities for which they are world renowned, becomes the protagonist after their vessel is sunk in a storm. Forced to escape overland, hounded by mercenaries, and traveling with a princess hostage, the film's question is whether they can escape to rape and pillage again. So its a chase film set in the old world, but it does invoke the setting and the cliché characters are portrayed well enough to involve the casual viewer.

Entertaining. Reminded me the Lord of the Rings!! But forgettable.
