Had the camera been a firing squad pointed towards its actors, their careers would have taken less damage.

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.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Without anything more to offer, the choreographed carnage gets stale very quickly.

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

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

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.

Never has an idea of such splendid nuttiness been so squandered to the god of neurotic style.

Pathfinder is simultaneously action-packed and a total bore, a strange movie that never seems to move even though it consists of almost nothing but violence.

Metal heads will be in Valhalla; everyone else should find a different path.

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who think slow-motion is cool and those who do not. If you are of the former, I can recommend Pathfinder.

All basic interest, to say nothing of excitement, is sapped whenever the big, brutal battle sequences come to a halt and inane dialogue takes over.

What killed this film in the theater was the lack of plot.

It's a movie that belies its title, showing neither a strong sense of direction nor the drive to do anything other than display a whole lot of slashing and stabbing.
| Original Score: 44/100

For all its flaws, Pathfinder is a unique little action film.

Boasting a prettified brutality that rivals that of 300, Pathfinder also explores a similar theme, the manly pursuit of revenge at any cost.

I was so irritated that I paid money to see this that I snuck into two movies afterward to feel better about my investment. Boooooooooring.

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.
| Original Score: 2/10

Like Beastmaster or Conan but without the wit or inspiration.
