This film is awful the costumes are shabby and the script is even worst. The male lead doesn&#39;t even look old enough to shave and comes off a bit camp to me. It might have something to do with the dark makeup around his eyes.<br/><br/>Now i know this film didn&#39;t have the biggest budget but to make a film this poor is just wrong.<br/><br/>I got about 10 minuets in to it and started skipping ahead to see if it got better and it didn&#39;t so i turned it off.<br/><br/>I think if your going to make a film like this try not to cast everyone with that just stepped out of the spa look. <br/><br/>I have given this 1 out of 10 as i couldn&#39;t get in to it or even finish it.<br/><br/>In summary<br/><br/>The casting is poor. The script is poor. The acting is poor. The story is awful. This film is a waste of time and money and should have never been made.

&quot;Viking Quest&quot; succeeds surprisingly well as an ambitious, exciting take on Norse mythology. Although its ambition exceeds its budget, it has a good, brisk pace and lots of excitement and action. With a few minor flaws, the script is well written and acted, most notably by Oliver Walker (Atlantis) and the two supporting female players. The hero is a bit disappointing but Mr. Walker, thankfully, puts him in the shade throughout most of the story. The film is far better than a host of the other attempts at this type of theme being done these days. It&#39;s not &quot;The Vikings&quot; or &quot;The Long Ships&quot; or even &quot;Prince Valiant&quot; but it comes reasonably close for those who enjoy remote historical period adventure films or mythic themes.. Recommended.

Through the vikings probably deserves some of the disgraceful film made about them, we as an audience do not. Well, to be honest, the film only has &quot;viking&quot; in it&#39;s name since there are no actual vikings in the film. Somewhere in (I assume) 8th century Scandinavia, two warring clans plan to unite through the marriage of the princess Tasya and the king Wolven. Tasya childhood friend Erick &quot;the blessed&quot; has the hots for Tasya, a feeling that is sort of answered, but not enough for Tasya to abandon her promised to be. Unfortunately, the dastardly V?lsungs (no relation the mythological clan, but nice touch) frequently carries out sacrifices of princesses to the Midgard Serpent, Loki&#39;s dragon-seed. Since king Sigvat of the V?lsungs has no children his soldiers nabs the princess in the process. Now it&#39;s up to Erick and Wolven to set their differences aside and rescue the princess. <br/><br/>It&#39;s the standard story. Nothing special, but can be a fun adventure for a Friday evening. To bad the film is so badly made. The fight scenes are under all standards for a film even of this budget. The editing does not even try to hide the baffling feeble choreography. Seeing that this is a low budget romp, some special effect failures are to be expected, but this film does not even try to work around that. We have a storm that is obviously shot in a studio. Guys, could you not even had intern splashing water with buckets? It&#39;s the driest storm ever! A little extra effort could have pushed it to an at least acceptable level. Is a little more effort to much to ask. Now, the acting is really uneven. But in the case of the leads I do blame it on the director and not the actors. Harry Lister Smith and Jenny Boyd are pretty convincing as childhood friends with a scent of romance. You can see that they do have some acting chops, they are just in a bad movie. Same goes for Oliver Walker as Wolven. Anya Taylor-Joy was in the sensation that was The Witch, but I have not seen that yet. But she is not very good in this film. <br/><br/>As stated above, the script is pretty standard, through there is a minor twist which is neat in it&#39;s own little way. Then the scenery is really nice. Mostly, the costumes seem to be roughly accurate. Most of the clothes, armors and helmets are pretty authentic to what I&#39;ve seen in museums and books. That&#39;s not to say that this film is historically accurate. A high medieval castle is dropped in the middle of Scandinavia in the freaking 7th century and is painfully out of sync with the rest of the iconography of the film. Then, they have a male character called Hild. Talk about not doing the research...<br/><br/>If you are looking for a so bad that it&#39;s good viking film, Viking Quest is what you look for. Through not good at all, it&#39;s never boring. Like Troll 2 or Death Academy or any Ed Wood film, it&#39;s a charming bad movie. So grab your cowhorns, pass the mead and have a laugh.
