Northmen - A Viking Saga

If you can't edit fight scenes well, don't have them in the first place.

A small band of vikings (led by Tom Hopper) with a huge amount of bad luck get shipwrecked on a foreign land and immediately draw the ire of its king who sends his ruthless mercenaries to slaughter them. If that sounds like non-stop action its because it almost is, especially since there's not much of a plot outside backstories to fill here - yet somehow it still manages to leave questions unanswered!

Even that sword grip looks odd to me... but hey, I'm no expert.

Anyway, it's a fun enough adventure with a good body count but only if you are happy to turn off your brain and enjoy the ride. Just a heads up the fighting scenes are of the many quick cuts variety cinematography wise, which is crap. All up I would probably watch it again, but wouldn't go out of my way to do so and give it two crazy monks out of five.
