Highlander vs PredatorBy ExiledKiwi (2 reviews) from Bedford , 08 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]I started with very low expectations of this movie and it does start out as a action movie by numbers, but once you get beyond the fact that all the Vikings speak with Irish accents it is a decent movie. The characters are pretty one dimensional but then again I wasn't expecting Shakespeare. The action scenes are top notch and the movie moves along at a cracking pace. The director has been influenced by Predator and Highlander which can only be a good thing.

Conan meets Space monster. Good, enjoyable action.By IrmscherMatt (4 reviews) , 09 May 2013I really enjoyed this! The beginning starts with some promise although in the end it was a sort of 'Conan the Barbarian Vs Predator' type thing. Lots of 'serious' actors too which attempts to lend credibility (it does) to an otherwise ordinary film It was also slightly disconcerting to see the lead (James Caviezel) in Viking garb........I kept on waiting for his bespectacled partner to poke his head out from behind a Tree or Rock and say, 'you'll have to leave that monster, a new number has just arrived........' An enjoyable, well made action film that is great for just enjoying for what it is I'll recommend this for no nonsense easy to enjoy action
glad i didn't pay a dollar for thisBy a customer , 30 Mar 2013a really silly yarn with reasonable special effects and nice scenery but jim caviezel - yes handsome but oh so wooden and expressionless
Worth a lookBy NJBWOM (9 reviews) from sw4 , 22 Dec 2012Don't be put off by first 10 mins - entertaining throughout. Would have given 3 stars but acting in parts a bit cras!
Fresh story line.By a customer from Farnborough , 19 Jul 2012This is a good film that effectively mixes romance with Sci Fi and Viking battles.
The action was terrific and the special effects awesome.
This was a surprise as I wasnt quite sure what to expect.
Would definitely recommend.
