What can I say, this movie is a solid 4 star movie. Best intentions are evident. But from the beginning you can tell this is a low budget flick. Costumes are simple, and sets are as well. Each actor looks like they just came from having coffee at Starbucks...no need for any prep before shooting the next scene. That said the acting itself isn't half bad. The story is charming and fans of the time era will enjoy some things about it. But overall just a solid 4 stars at best.

Watch only if you have time to waste or really want ot see a Viking type of movieReviewed bysun-creekVote: 4/10
I found this to be very watchable and fun.
Is the acting a ten...nope...
Is the story a ten....nope....
Is the film enjoyable...YES!!! It tells the tale of a Hero, Eric, who thinks he is blessed by the Gods, his love of his commoner friend who is a beautiful women is meant to marry a prince to unite clans. But can Eric win her affection and are their wrinkles that make their union a bad one? Is there someone else more virtuous.
I know clichéd, but so is every film. Once you watch the movie, you figure things out, but is that bad? Every movie, you can figure out the ending, as it is usually a 50/50 proposition, someone lives or someone dies or a mix of both.
I did find it silly, but for a small budget movie, it is acceptable and do not be a snob. Don't expect, Citizen Kane, but expect Viking Quest, made to be made for TV. The TV goofiness is fun, sometimes illogical, but once you sit down, know what to expect in terms of budget you can forgive the bad acting and script issues and accept it for romance, adventure, small budget and a very likable hero.
I look at the grand scheme of things, for this type of TV movie, it was pretty good, obviously it's not an award winning masterpiece but not something one should dismiss. It is not LOTR or anything that will blow your mind, but will entertain and may end up liking its charm.
Men will like it, snobs will not, and I am a man, I enjoyed the plot and forgave the acting, while amateurish, enough emotion was conveyed that made it worthwhile.
If you are a snob, I can see this rating as a 5 out of 10.
For me personally, 9 out of 10 for a small budget Viking/Hero movie, it was good. The movie was a tad long, but the payoff was worth it and it left me satisfied.
For a low-budget movie, with an unknown cast (in majority), movie is not half as bad as i expected. If you accept the movie for what it is, a TV movie and accept the fact you're dealing in a fantasy/myth atmosphere, you will enjoy it.
I saw Last Knights the day before and let me tell you, the story was way better than that movie, even with such a amateur production. Colorful, well-paced, some "it's so bad its good" moments here and there, acceptable CGI (wolves are almost on par with Twilight).
If it was a mute movie in black & white from the 20s, it would be a classic, since its a TV movie with limited resources from nowadays... its a fun movie if you keep an open mind and can see the "Monty Phyton" behind all this silliness :D
Fun to watch, recommend a look, 6 to upgrade rate a bit, worth a 5
