Picked up this DVD - Vikingdom - the premise for which was rather, well fanciful, though I had no expectations of it being anything but entertaining.
"A forgotten king, Eirick, is tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the God of Thunder."
Alas, it was so bad that I kept watching it for a further 5 minutes before turning this travesty off.
OMG - the script, the cast, the acting - all BAD. The fight scenes and violence - OVER THE TOP - almost Buster Keaton-like - nay, cartoonish.
And this is the "story":
"In the midst of time comes the clanging of steel against steel, a collision of myth, history and fiction.... "Vikingdom". Loosely based on Viking legends and the epic poems they left as record, combined with a creative interpretation "Vikingdom" is a fantasy, action adventure about a forgotten king, Eirick, who was tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the God of Thunder. Thor is on a mission to gather the key ancient relics - "Mjolnir" - his hammer from Valhalla, "Necklace of Mary Magdalene" from Mitgard and the "Horn" from Helheim. This needs to be accomplished before the Blood Eclipse, which happens once every 800 years, failing which, the pagan Viking Gods will never be able to rule and conquer mankind ever again. Only one man can stop him... Eirick, the undead."
Watch at you own peril.
