Sure Pathfinder is dumb in places. I don't have any spoilers but pointing out some things to look for. The movie seems to have borrowed most of it's story from other movies. It's quite a bit like Dances with Wolves, with a bit of Rambo thrown in. It seems to borrow the ice scene from King Arthur. The sledding scene that everyone thinks is so funny goes on and on. Some people have asked where he learned to use his sword but the movie shows him practicing with it. Besides, we see no fancy swordplay in this movie, it's just hacking and slashing for all your worth. Of course, this <more>
is a formula picture in which one person takes on an army by himself basically but there are a few surprises thrown in and some failures that you might not expect from a heroic fantasy. I really liked this movie in spite of its goofiness. My wife absolutely hated it and wouldn't quit squirming in her seat. It's not a chick flick by any stretch of the imagination. Why did I give it a 10 then? Because artistically it's in a class all by itself. Never have the villains looked cooler or crueler than in this movie. Though Conan and 300 are tons better than this movie, no other movie I've ever seen has better looking villains. This look like Vikings from your worst nightmare. Both beautiful, demonic and seemingly invincible. Also their armored horses look absolutely stunning. This is Frazetta brought to life. You just have to see it to believe it. They look great throughout but be forewarned, you've seen the story before, many times, in many films. Silly but artistically wonderful and I just loved it.
Though historically inaccurate it was a sweet movie (by demonsdespaire)
First of all i cant help but notice how out of all the people who voted it seems its a love hate movie. You ether loved it or hated it. I for one loved it. I mean ya the trailer made it out to be a movie more about the Norse men then anything else but when has a movie followed the adds. Vary rarely in my experience vary rarely. The hole movie is based around a young Norse boy who was left behind after a Norse raid. A native women not sure what tribe finds him and adopts him into the tribe. He's isn't excepted into the tribe truly though. Later the Norse come back and he has a chance <more>
to prove himself.The movie had a few problems people keep pointing out that i cant seem to figure out myself. I mean ya the scoring wasn't the most memorable thing ever and i wouldn't buy the scoring but I'm fine with the with no scoring like in the old school horror movies which had the most minimal scoring ever. There was nothing wrong with the acting that i noticed but i don't have a major in theater like some people. I mean if you want bad acting thats not the actors fault go watch Bloodrayne. That move had an excellent concept behind it and actors that could back it up, but they got that director who has messed up every movie he's ever made. Pathfinder was fine unless someone wants to nitpick. The only problem the movie had was its release date which was right after 300 which destroyed its box-office scoring. 300 may I point out did excellent even this its inaccuracies. This movie was more accurate then 300 in many ways though the Norse men didn't dress like Space marines warhammer 40k reference or Orks from WarCraft but there has to be some artistic license when there making a movie thats not a documentary.
A Very Great Film by the Excellent Director Marcus Nispel! (by filmone1)
This movie was gorgeous and everything I ever wanted in a "Viking" lands on North America film. I thought this film was very underrated and with the Judd Apatow dreck that gets called film-making these days this really stands up in beauty and depth of story. The cinematography of the Northwest coast was amazing and incorporating the dense forests and lush environments into the shooting process was simply amazing.The acting was perfect and at times understated in wonderfully blocked scenes between the characters. I thought the action is unmatched by many films pretending to be the <more>
action blockbusters they are often sold as. I often marveled at the length in which the filmmakers brought the setting to us no matter how difficult the set-ups seemed.I hope he keeps making films for years to come! Beautiful!
I understand the history buffs being upset, but seriously this is stated as being based off a "Graphic Novel". It's by the same people that did Blade and Ghost Rider. Dark Horse isn't interested in history, they are interested in telling an entertaining story. There are many stories based on similar scenarios. I can name 5 off the top of my head. All had pictures of the horns on helmets. Even the books written in the 1800's had that error. Basically just enjoy the entertainment. Then when they invent a method of time travel you can go straighten out the first guy to add <more>
those horns. I'd rather listen to 100 idiots tell me about a movie then 2 history buffs, basically because an idiot can just enjoy and get a thrill out of the story without analyzing it. I have an IQ over 140 and found over-thinking just makes life dull.
My grandson and I went to see this movie today . . .so while it is fresh in my mind, I will give you the opinion of a adult and a teenage young man.We both truly enjoyed the movie. We both enjoyed the "film noir" appearance, which truly captured the essence of the movie. It is NOT a happy movie, so if that's what your looking for you sure came to the wrong show.To have it all filmed in color would of ruined it as far as we were concerned.Most of the Native American actors I have seen in other movies and they were great here. My first time to see Kevin Urban, he was truly <more>
believable in his part as were all the actors.I have only two criticisms, the "vikings" we're a bit on the silly side and the CGI goes on way too long.I don't want to write a spoiler, so will let it go at that.I have that issue with most "action"movies today. They take a scene that full of edge of the seat action, then just keep going with it.I say, make your point, scare the pants off us, then move on.If you like action movies and you like anything Native American, you will like this movie.Sincerely, Linda Hayes Choctaw/Cherokee Nations
A very decent outdoor action flick!!! (by victor89)
Overwhelmed Native Americans armed with stone knives and tomahawks versus vicious, bloodthirsty Viking raiders clad in leather skins and furs, heavily armored, and wearing fearsome-looking headgear brandishing long steel swords, steel arrowheads, and very pointy maces attached to long, heavy chains. They ruthlessly spare no one.That pretty much sums up this worthwhile flick.Vikings had conducted numerous raids against European towns and cities during the period's Dark Ages, plundering their wealth and sometimes slaughtering their inhabitants. It's highly doubtful that Vikings had ever <more>
molested native Americans in our hemisphere. In reality, however, from the 16th century up to the late 19th century, settlers and soldiers from the western European countries ironically perhaps, many of them descendants of the Viking raiders' victims will eventually do to them what the Viking brutes had fictitiously wrought against the Indians in this movie.If you relish slaughterfest films such as those featured in the "Conan" and "Lord of the Ring" movies, then you'll like this one.
I have read many comments here that hated the film. One of my friends who accompanied me to the screening disliked it as well. He thought it was a waste of time, too. Unfortunately, many viewers, such as my friend, miss the point, as they in fact look for a point.Unlike the new trend of films of this era, "Pathfinder" did not submit to the theme of freedom, the political freedom. None of the characters pronounce the word freedom, such as the main character of the film, "300," who shouted it out loud. Instead, the main character of the film, Ghost, battles himself and <more>
"his demons" in order to find his own freedom and to fit in. Ghost tries to look for the peace he was raised in."Pathfinder" challenges the modern stage of film-making, and re-introduces a somewhat Western ideology that John Wayne's "The Searchers" had introduced in 1956. Therefore, the audience has to place themselves in a position to examine each character-groups' point of view. In that respect, the film offers some depth to the little story that is filled with violent battle scenes.The battle scenes are enjoyable. There is a certain level of combat cruciality. That is also a part of the little depth the story gives us. Thus, the issue of good and evil surfaces in the film in how battle is a balancing aspect of the life each side's lives.Of course since this film is trying to appeal to the general audience, a certain degree of love and romance is involved. The love and romance of this film is actually not all-so-bad, although I am not quite found of. However, it brings a little strength into the issue of choice of life Ghost must endear.I think "Pathfinder" lives up to its own introduction, "Legend." Therefore, it is filmed as such, an old legend. The film-makers saw it as such, and they wanted to let us see it too. I know I did. The dialogue s is not the perfect one, but must resemble the simplicity of older times. I do not think this is the greatest film ever made; however, it is a well made film which I think people will enjoy its little story, if they can go past the neo-ideology and "what's the point?" issue.
Don't think of this as a 'history lesson' ... just enjoy the story. (by Michco)
This film was very good. I really think the viewers should not even think about it being a 'history lesson' at all. It is very much a Frazetta style picture, with almost exactly the 'Death Dealer' painting portrayed. So with that in mind this is a movie of possible unknown 'raiders' who are just *way* too brutal and they just want to kill and maim and they need to be stopped at all costs by the natives of the land ... and so they need a hero.I think this film is at least twice as good as "300", and here's why: although it has almost exactly the same <more>
'graphic novel' look and feel, I like this film more because the storyline was very engaging, great characters, costumes, and cinematography. As you watch the movie each scene is distinct and new and really is memorable, and if you *really* squint your eyes you might even believe it like 'Lord of the Rings' . There is lots of gore heads lopped off, etc. but that is the current styling of films anyways; I could do with a little less of it myself.I loved the natives and how they're portrayed. The costumes and sets are fantastic! There's a bit of their mysticism, and honour warriors are very 'brave' , and real sense of tribal bonding and family.PS. Watch the DVD extras and you really 'get' where they were going, who cares about the vikings having horns?? . It's just a great movie, and for story this is great! Thanks to the cast and crew !
I saw Pathfinder last night and I was nervous that it would be awful since the release had been pushed back so many times, but I liked the film. I have to say the dialouge left something to be desired but other than that it made a good showing. The fight scenes were well done, especially the the ice sequence. I enjoyed that the main character Ghost Karl Urban wasn't made into some kind of super hero, just a regular guy caught in a bad situation. Karl did well with his role despite the afore mentioned dialouge, using his facial expressions and body language to further the emotional <more>
aspects of each scene without going too far and looking silly. Moon Bloodgood held her own, as did most of the other cast members. Overall, it was a good movie. As someone who practically lives at the theater I can tell you Pathfinder is better than most of its competitors. Nice job
