Movie Info

In the midst of time comes the clanging of steel against steel, a collision of myth, history and fiction.... "Vikingdom". Loosely based on Viking legends and the epic poems they left as record, with a creative interpretation, "Vikingdom" is a fantasy, action adventure about a forgotten king, Eirick, who was tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the God of Thunder. Thor is on a mission to gather the key ancient relics - "Mjolnir" - his hammer from Valhalla, "Necklace of Mary Magdalene" from Mitgard and the "Horn" from Helheim. This needs to be accomplished before the Blood Eclipse, which happens once every 800 years, failing which, the pagan Viking Gods will never be able to rule and conquer mankind ever again. Only one man can stop him... Eirick, the undead.(c) Official Facebook

Once you look past the carnage, special effects and colossal locales, all you're left with is the supper show at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament.

At least in a video game, you have some control over the plot.

This cheerfully silly action fantasy is unpretentious fun best suited to younger viewers.

The first Hobbit picture's digital armies have a higher pixel rate, but Vikingdom packs in twice as much fun and thrice as much incident in much less running time.

Frequent battle violence abounds in trite medieval fantasy.

Vikingdom is not a great movie, or even a very good one, but it is an original - and sort of adorable - one.

Audience Reviews for Vikingdom

Lord of the Rings meets Showtimes Spartacus Series.Visually stunning but a bit improbable,even for a Swedish Girl like me

A hard-hitting and visually spectacular fantasy action-packed adventure. Its loaded with heart-pounding battles and impressive special effects, not bad for a movie that cost less than twenty million to make. Director, Yusry Abd Halm crafts a uproariously fun and dazzling action epic that will appeal to the movie fan and geek in all of us. It's stylish, compelling and filled with imagination. You don't need The Hobbit or 300 to get your fantasy adventure fix. I loved it. It has enough bloody epic action, Vikings, mystery, thrills and fun to go around. Dominic Purcell is terrific, he gives a soft spoken and compelling performance. It think this movie will totally find its place as a cult classic amongst fans.

Criminally bad. Dominic Purcell ('Prison Break') stars as resurrected Viking king, Eirick, who has been tasked with collecting three ancient artifacts from various Norse gods before a Blood Eclipse occurs which would allow these gods to rule over the earth and conquer all of mankind if the task isn't completed. The budget was oddly spent on a few scenes with some decent special effects while 98% of the film went without. The make-up, costumes and wigs here are atrocious -- Thor's red hair looks like a candy apple red synthetic wig from Halloween while Frey's yellow costume is a tortured mess that looks as it was sewn as an arts and craft project in preschool. And Thor's hammer? Uh ... no, it's the size of a Fiat. I couldn't believe what I was seeing here -- people spent money on this?! It dares to spin a different tale of Thor and some of his fellow friends; but yikes ... whoa! Seriously, people ... this got the green light?
