superbBy williamsgwynfa (627 reviews) from gwaenysgor , 25 Apr 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]this film is superb. it is an action adventure film, set in the time of the Vikings, when they tried to conquer North America.
'Pathfinder' tells the heroic story, of a young Norse boy left behind in a strange land, after the war party from his Viking clan, shipwrecks their longboats after an intense battle, on the North American, Eastern shores, some 600 years prior to the arrival of Christopher Columbus.
Despite his Viking Lineage and heritage, the boy is raised and nurtured by the North American Indians, that his Norse kinsmen set out to destroy.
Fifteen years later, as the Vikings return to stage another barbaric raid on his adopted village, the 25 year-old Norse warrior played by Karl Urban, who is known as Ghost, due to his pale complexion, wages a personal war to stop the Vikings' trail of death and destruction, when the Viking's slaughter the villagers.
Ghost, upon discovering the pile of bodies, left by his brethren from the North, sets out on a path to kill as many of the interlopers as he can, a suicide mission to be sure, but an honourable undertaking in the eyes of the young warrior.
in doing this, the young man begins, finding his own path, navigating between the two worlds.
On one hand he is born of the Vikings, and is inextricably tied to that culture, but he has also become firmly entrenched in the vastly different lifestyle of the native tribe.
Ghost must find out who he is; is he to be forever linked to the world of his birth and their bloodthirsty ways, or can he discover the path that will lead to happiness in his adoptive home.
by forging his own path, his destiny is revealed and his identity re-claimed.
well worth renting out.

Violent But Entertaining.By filmsaremypassion (149 reviews) from Bexhill , 27 Oct 2010Beware to many who don't like blood, gory images or strong violence. This film is not for you. But if you like this sort of thing, you are in for a treat. Yes, Pathfinder isn't perfect and won win awards for it's effort. But it is a entertaining film to spend nearly two hours with. 600 years before Chrisopher Colmbus discovered America, one native woman finds a abounded child who was left behind from his Viking tribe. His name is Ghost (Karl Urban). When the Norsemen return, it begins a struggling and emotional fight to protect his people, learn some truths about his past and win the love of a native woman (Moon Bloodgood). With some awesome battle scenes, beautiful scenery and okay pefomances, Pathfinder is recommened by me to check out if you haven't seen it yet.
Bit of a let down.By a customer from somerset , 06 Aug 2010Not very impressed with this film, got bored and didn't finish watching it.
On the good side there is action but it's no epic.
