  1. Nicely balances action and adventure with American Indian wisdom and a modest romance to provide a graphic-comic-book movie experience for males in urban markets.

    It's undone by a murky palette, silly horror-movie cliches, dumb dialogue and a confusing climactic sequence.
  3. A bizarre, bloody adventure movie.

    All cinematic creativity seems to have focused on devising the most repellent ways to maim and murder.

    There is one redeeming skirmish -- the climactic fight involving a snowy cliff and an elaborate pulley system -- but from the guy who's directed videos for Cher, Amy Grant, Billy Joel, and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony? We expected more.

    Too small to be a spectacle, too humorless to take seriously and too stupid to pass muster at a middle school writing workshop.

    Here's my nomination for future grindhouse double-bill from hell: Pathfinder and "Apocalypto."

    It may start off dumb, but you get used to its dumbness after a while, and in its own thrilling way its good. Well, at least I liked it.

Horrible plot. . . but still entertaining. This movie would have been epic if they dispensed with english throughout the whole feature and didn't elaborate on the plot details as much to focus on the good vs evil battle taking place in a farcical action movie way.

    The thing that disturbs me most about this movie is that I could not imagine how the vikings could fit their horses into their narrow-hulled The thing that disturbs me most about this movie is that I could not imagine how the vikings could fit their horses into their narrow-hulled ships, because as I saw from the movie, these were the kind of ships they used to cross the ocean and reach foreign land. I'm not familiar with Nordic history, but did the vikings rear and ride horses? Maybe they should have incorporated Led Zep's "Immigrant Song" into this movie to make it sound better because the dialogue was diabolical. Expand

    An unwatchable mess made from a wretched script. Even a comatose patient would walk out of this movie.

    If this had been generic fantasy I would have rated 4 for its hackneyed plot . But it was supposed to be semi-historical about a real clash If this had been generic fantasy I would have rated 4 for its hackneyed plot . But it was supposed to be semi-historical about a real clash of cultures and it manages to get everything wrong from costuming, weaponry and everyday modes of life. It makes the Vikings .ook incompetent at their profession of plundering and the warriors of the amierican indians look even worse. Avoid this movie. Expand
