      Very Good for a "B" grade Sci-fi flick

      I saw this years ago and picked it up on Blu-Ray in the bargain bin. I wasn't disappointed to revisit such an interesting take on the Sci-fi Beowulf "genre". Yes, there is more than on film that fits this category. Jim Caviezel, Sophia Myles, John Hurt, Ron Perlman. Other cast also did a good job. The story is decent. The CG is fine and even good much of the time. The performances are, as expected, what sell this gem of a movie. The blu-ray transfer is good as well. Buy it. You will want to see it more than once.

      Good combination of alien, dragon, and Vikings

      This movie is often described as Beowulf meets Predator. The basic premises offer fertile grounds for multiple movies: - An alien ship lands in our earth's past - The ship contains both good and evil - The alien good element must collaborate with earthlings to defeat the alien evil. The story is gripping, albeit a little too bloody for my PG-13 preference. But it's the Viking setting that makes the film stand out from the crowd. Caviezel's performance is outstanding, as one would expect from an actor who in an earlier movie did an excellent portrayal of a much greater hero, the God-Man.

      What if there was really an alternate reality, separated by time in seconds or hundreds of years, and all you had todo is find some standing stones and travel back and forth from one to the other, wouldn’t this be thoroughly fascinating? Diana Gabbaldon, has found our weakness for good stories and drama and has taken us for a long, long ride in to the past with romantic fare. Good stories and well acted.

      During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.

      Movie of a human-like alien Space movie, comes to Earth tracking a dangerous space creature that killed his family. He has to fight the odds, being in old Viking times without a weapon that can kill the creature! The space alien is a favorite actor Jim Caviezel.

      Such an overlooked film in 2008 - it never made it to theaters and was lost to the ‘straight to video’ subsection. It’s actually A great sci-fi monster flick with a thoroughly flushed out story, and great performances from all involved. The blu-ray transfer is a great format and does many favors for the film.

      I had no idea how this would go but since it was a bargain Bluray I decided to take a shot. It was a little hoakey and fragmented, but the action was good and it was just good enough to keep me watching. Ended up enjoying it overall and glad I took a chance.

      love the premise of the movie. A space warrior crash lands on earth and becomes a viking. He defeats an enemy also from the future that was stow away on his ship. Using tools that the vikings used. Movie has some great action scenes.
