Epic Pictures Group Review: Vikingdom (Available Now)

The likeness of a film for me is not the epic battles or the storytelling of something we have seen before, but something unique and original. There is one hope they have Conan Stevens playing Thor-he is the only major reason to watch.

A large dominating force is Thor in this film he wants bloodshed and power -he does this all himself. He is set to face a what was thought to be a dead king , but brought back from the dead to fight a battle against Thor.
Dominic Purcell(left in blue) is not good for a leader in this tale at all he is uninspired looks bored out of his mind reading the bad lines this makes all the better for when Thor rages on and that is lackluster at best. The final fight is fast and furious the editing is quite slick and works well but a film cannot rely on one scene alone there are some other decent fight scenes but a good number are overdone and are chaotic.
Overall I only sat through this as I did enjoy some of the performances and some of the sets and mostly the final battle scene I am glad I stuck around for that part.

This film tries almost too much to try and be everything for everyone all at once , Vikings, Elves , Wizards, Martial Artists, Swordsmen, Archers and the list continues.

Thank you for reading this
