Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, a young Viking warrior, Steinar, is sent by his father, the king, on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar's epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be, the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne.

The director said he wanted to make "Apocalypse Now" with Vikings. The film stock is constantly dark and foggy, and the under-armored warriours often fight with one hand completely empty, and they have no shields. Other than that ,.. its an 'O.K.' low-budget costumed Quest film. Its uneven, but has some interesting caracters, and intense action sequences. I love historicals, but this one isn't a 'fave'. ( Kev's PICkS: To see how well it can be done, revisit the 1958 classic..."The Vikings", with Kirk Douglas,.. and for some great fun, check out the supurbly crafted sci-fi "Beowolf"-inspired gem..."Outlander".)

This wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen, it is far from being good. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way. Very predictable but still entertaining.

This movie is for sadist who likes violence. Steiner found his older brother is a bigger retard with an Oedipus complex. Mind numbing movie I wish I did not watch.

A Viking Prince was sent on a dangerous journey over hostile Saxon land to bring back his mystical brother as the new king. Could be edited down to an hour as a pilot of a period series on the new era under the Prince.

Quite gory. Don't really care about the characters.
