Hammer of the Gods (2013)


Recommended Posts

"Britain, 871 AD - A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley) 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."


I rather enjoyed this film, it was brimming with action scenes and was much more fast-paced than I anticipated it would be. If you're into Pagan themed action films I'd recommend it. I'm not 100% sure on the historical accuracy (I suspect it has almost none) but sometimes that means little as long as the film is decent.


Some of the perks:

So, naturally it has all the makings of a great film in my eyes, and even the acting was decent.

I'd give it a personal rating of 7/10
