Relentlessly violent tale about a shipwrecked Viking lad taken in and raised by a Native American tribe, until 15 years later when now as an adult he (Karl Urban) sets out, virtually single-handedly, to exact revenge on returning Vikings who have slaughtered his adopted tribe and are bent on killing every other tribe in their path so as to lay claim to the land. Director Marcus Nispel's video gamelike movie eschews character development as well as narrative logic in a drawn-out series of brutal beheadings, impalements and eviscerations that overwhelm the intriguing premise of the legendary Norsemen arriving on American shores many centuries before Columbus. Excessive violence and gore. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
