Story


"Northmen: A Viking Saga" tells the story of a group of Vikings in the ninth century who set sail for Britain, aiming to plunder the rich monasteries in the northern part of the island. But a storm smashes the ship to pieces on the rocks off the coast of Scotland, the only part of Britain without any Viking settlements. Soon thereafter, the daughter of the Scottish King falls into their hands, and the Vikings see this as an opportunity to demand a large ransom. The King immediately sets his "wolfpack"-a group of mercenaries well-known for their savagery-on the Vikings. The "Northmen" with their hostage now have to force their way through the rough highlands, where they meet the brave and mysterious Christian monk Conall (Ryan Kwanten). Having the wolfpack close on their heels, a desperate race against time begins. A battle over life and death...

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it'll do until the new season of the History Channel's Vikings comes along..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..they're striking and give you something to look at between well-staged and sometimes berserk battles and hoary B-movie cliches..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]
“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
