Vikingdom or the Kingdom of the Vikings in Russian — Malaysian masterwork, cough, cough, from the Malaysian kinotvortsov with the relevant Malaysian names. A sure proof that is now unknown Asia raises its head in the creation epic and spectacular fighters, but not only works wonders in responsible entertainment for aliens booze, discos and transvestites. Take the same "RAID" from the Indonesian comrades. It is gratifying that these small and attractive tourist attitude of the state contribute to the Treasury of the world's entertainment movie.

So, the Kingdom of the Vikings, hear, or reads the name. Yeah, you see, the film took the proud Norwegians. Or unfazed by the Swedes. And maybe even amargamente the Dutch. Well, or in extreme case, frozen in the eternity of the moment of alcoholic intoxication Finns. In General, any Scandinavians. But what our surprise when we next hear or read the name of the Director — the ISRI CRU. Further enumeration of names only inflates our surprise. Damn it! Just remember the real American jeans, made in the Turkish vaults. Turkey today is not that dreary clothing power, now the proud Turks in their basements making a movie, do you think. And image preview only confirms your hunch about the basement.

The filmmakers have conceived of an epic movie, so I go all out and dragged the main role of the fatal hero Dominic Purcell of the series Prison Break. Because it the most famous of the cast, list of other actors no sense — mostly quite well-known Malaysian actors and little-known other. However, in a special way highlighted the role of the deity Thor — Conan (Yes, and thought children no call?) Stevens — big guy with painted Hells red hair (what is reminiscent of goth-metallistka or fashionable biker).

Well, well, despite the obscurity of actors, the film itself is quite good. Epic was the idea turned out an epic movie, without any jokes. The Apocrypha to the Scandinavian sagas, in other to be and should not. But haven't heard the synopsis.

Well so. In the distant Northern lands of the Vikings for the light materialized itself Thor, the God with a huge hammer, blazing with the electrical discharges. From the boredom, he must have decided to destroy Midgard, it is our human realm, and allow all remaining in the power of Hel. With he assembles a squad of the consonants kings of the earth, disagree fells tight and wandering ancient Europe with the goal is to collect powerful artifacts that will help him to arrange a total of exterminate all and Sundry. Waking from honey hangover other Norse gods come in the horror, painted in his own impotence to change anything and in order to correct the situation and to restore order, take out of the seclusion of the old hero, who broke with the heroic deeds of their reasons (of course, tragic). Received from him promise bravely sideplate to complete lifelessness of the apostate and malacologica Thor (why not Loki, by the way?), vypinyvayut our hero (in the cold) to hike, themselves go and continue to drink honey Mead. Eric blood (his name) assembles a strike team (one of which, by the way, the Asian guy who killed a crowd of enemies striking techniques of martial arts) and goes to hike. In the end of which the expected zabrivat red haired villain and restores peace and the rest — in the process of film having gone through many adventures. All very epic.

Setting Ikingdom, I confess to not truthfully, good. It's a great idea, from her by investing the proper amount of money would make a magnificent epic film. But money was scarce enough in mainly the salaries of actors and computer graphics. Let's just say — computer graphics in this movie everywhere. She and not a star Escaping Purcell plays here the main role. You have to clink the language of words "was very good, but...". Beautiful, but not natural. But, resigned to this major drawback, you get a no, and engaging viewing. And this is important.

I'm not very keen on the subject of North and Viking. So, sometimes I watch some movies. When I came across the movie, doubt suddenly gripped me. In the first number of negative reviews was soaring, and the second trailer was also not much of the hope promised for entertaining show. N as they say, the rest of the evening, there was nothing to do...

Once again convinced that everyone pleasing and in this picture, there is on what to look for, although the film is not without flaws. At first it seemed that what is an Amateur film. Here and the terrible costumes, and wigs don't understand what. Yeah and place of action of the wasteland which, as the city is not city and any of the clearing with standing sheds. However, the next I watched more were drawn into plot all these bugs went on the back burner.

The film carries. The story on really interesting, the creators have more budget, could turn out very cool movie. In the film is something to see. &Nbsp;epic battles, and emotional conversations, and closer to the end there is quite a affair. Effects somewhere frankly unnecessary and stupid, as if someone was trying to show that he has learned to work in some program. Actors sometimes don't enough of acting, although the actors themselves on most of the roles picked up well. Well and the image of the Torah, of course, weird. Red beard and this color of hair was initially caused only laughter. Then, has drawn even decided that not as lame as if the villain was again Loki.

The film, though, and similar in plot to other representatives of the genre, but generally very good good. The plot is well constructed, rocking slowly, and is closer to the end just unwound up to the limit. In such cheap pictures this is rare.

A few words about the actors. The main role is played by Dominic Perccel, one of brothers series Escape. Character actor never really good, but the film is all lies. Although all the same, I think the role of the Viking is not particularly well suited. Also in the picture is removed Natasha Malta, which is designed for such cheap films. Have it in her filmography a whole bunch already. Well, for dessert we gets John Fu. The action star Tekken Rebirth appeared suddenly, but played decently. Cool, but very underrated actor.

In General I was satisfied, he left a good impression. If you love Viking and not afraid of low budget films — I recommend it.

For a Start I will say a few words about the rating previous reviews, please don't see them completely agree with one no other.

The film is rather long oars on sites in front of me, I didn't it from a bad poster and small rating here on the cinema-the search with the beginning of the film I was very and very surprised all was shown a very nice, + it that the plot, too, was not an ordinary interesting about the special effects to say a special thank you they all very good, all look natural to this finally not to nitpick, a separate + for the extensive shooting and fight scenes.

The cast and their game, there is a high level, one does not defeated I sat not done, all characters were selected on simple perfectly a muscular Viking, druid, Valkyrie girl, particularly like Thor here he displayed in the best way.

And so to summarize for I put the cons -0,5 for fail to decor in the lower world, -0,5 for that too much is seen when people wigs and -0.5 for the plot flaws, in some places, it was not much clear that happened why so.

Suggest to watch this film to all lovers of historical fiction genres, and those who watch such TV series as Spartacus, Game of thrones and the like.
