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.

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

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.
April 13, 2007
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.
April 13, 2007
As dim and dank as a power failure in a peepshow, Pathfinder is Apocalypto without the laughs or 300 without the muscular visuals and elevating dialogue.
April 13, 2007
The official Pathfinder Web site is far more interesting than the movie itself, and you'll get better history lessons from the Vikings of Minnesota.

No more than a minute into this, and it becomes obvious that the next 98 are going to be trouble.
April 13, 2007
The movie takes us on a journey to an ugly, contentious period in our misty, ancient past -- all the way back to four months ago, when Apocalypto came out.
April 13, 2007
After the first 1,000 or so beheadings, impalements and severed limbs, Pathfinder's slash may just induce sleep.
April 13, 2007
All grunting, all goring, the witless action flick Pathfinder has little to recommend it.
April 13, 2007
Dialogue is a low priority in this film, which has less plot than most video games.
April 13, 2007
There's a fan's sincere hokeyness about Pathfinder that makes the experience relatively painless, in spite of the number of people who get tortured, decapitated or dismembered.
April 13, 2007
Though Pathfinder was completed before 300 and the equally artful and brutal Apocalypto, it can still do nothing but slog along in their footprints.
April 13, 2007
Blood flows freely here, but the movie never creates a keen sense of involvement or mystery. Even a major cliffhanging (literally) set piece winds up blurred by the addition of a blinding snowstorm.
April 13, 2007
Here's hoping Pathfinder II is a straight-to-video- game release.
April 13, 2007
The movie is part Apocalypto (warriors, threat of hostile takeover, violence!) and part 300 (warriors, threat of hostile takeover, violence!), but with the commercial misfortune of being neither.
April 12, 2007
All cinematic creativity seems to have focused on devising the most repellent ways to maim and murder.
April 12, 2007
This one is an instant Mystery Science Theatre 3000 classic, ideal for watching on TV with loud friends.
