The fault here lies in the film's dead rhythm, which never lights the sparks necessary for an action film. The plot and action progress like an eroding lakeshore, but the energy and excitement are washed away in every scene.
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.
I didn't think it was possible to make a movie involving Vikings worse than 1978's The Norsemen starring Lee Majors, but director Marcus Nispel and company have accomplished just that with this formulaic piece of poorly made PC trash.
