Critics Consensus

A few rousing action sequences can't make up for Pathfinder's non-existent plot and silly dialogue.

Movie Info

In an untamed, primordial America, 500 years before Columbus will reach its shores, unfolds an epic battle between love and hate that will change one man's destiny and the future of a nation: "Pathfinder." This action-adventure saga recreates one of the most riveting, yet never-before-seen, eras in human history--when Viking "dragon" ships from the mysterious Norse lands arrived out of nowhere to invade a pristine North America. Inspired by historical findings, yet forged with the magic and style of a modern graphic novel, "Pathfinder" comes to life in a cinematic experience filled with intense and primal action.

  • Imagine a heavy metal album cover come suddenly to life and you pretty much have the measure of Pathfinder.

  • Pathfinder's main appeal will be to connoisseurs of gore, who will find no shortage of graphically rendered stabbings, shootings, smashings, severings and slicings.

  • The movie is filmed in a way that makes it seem like the camera has epilepsy and the color desaturation renders everything murky. Someone should remind director Marcus Nispel that there's a difference between making a music video and a feature film.

  • Pathfinder's moody, muddy look is courtesy of music-video director Marcus Nispel, who doesn't distinguish between people and tree trunks when it comes to emotional content.

  • This latest bit of historical balder-dash stands in direct defiance of proven action-movie formulas, trusting its brutal concept and striking visuals to overcome a lack of star power.
