Trivia:

Goofs:
Continuity: (At 00:46:28) There is a wide shot of Ghost leaving the tribe after warning them about the Vikings being on their way to kill them all, and he is being followed by the mute character. In the first wide shot of the sequence you see them going right through the middle of the screen, the next shot is a close up of the same shot and you can see a trail in the snow ahead of them made by repeating the same shot. The next shot is made in some bushes but the next shot shows the same original wide shot with the same location but this time they are crossing on the bottom right corner, but you can still see the trail in the snow in the middle of the screen from the previous shot.

Quotes:
Starfire: There are two wolves fighting in each man's heart. One is Love, the other is Hate.
Ghost: Which one wins?
Starfire: The one you feed the most.

User Review

Good action scenes wasted on terrible story, acting and editing.

Rating: 5/10

What a waste.

The only redeeming feature of this movie were the well made action scenes (not all were good, but overall there were more enjoyable fight sequences than boring ones).

The story is clichéd and predictable. The acting is terrible (the main role is so horribly sketched out that you can barely blame the actor, the supporting roles all make a mark for their blandness). The main couple have no chemistry, the dialog is UN-enjoyably bad and the editing looks like it was done by a blind man. Scenes start and end with absolutely no flow. One scene was particularly bad (I wont spoil it for you, suffice to say its the one where the Indians charge into battle against the hero's wishes). That is the only scene when I laughed in the movie, and its supposed to be a sad/rousing scene.

The trailer of this film looked really pretty, but then again the consisted of mostly the fight scenes so I'm not surprised at all. The director seems to have had a good eye for visuals, but his effort has ended there.

Pathfinder = 5/10 Five for the fight scenes.

I was trying to find a path out of the theater at many times during the movie.
