Pathfinder (2007)

Director: Marcus Nispel

Starring: Karl Urban, Moon Bloodgood, Russell Means, Clancy Brown

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Two Worlds, One War. The Ultimate Battle Begins.

Plot: A Viking boy is left behind after his clan battles a Native American tribe. Raised within the tribe, he ultimately becomes their savior in a fight against the Norsemen.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? Nope.

By the numbers action adventure riddled with cliche stacked upon cliche. I like Urban but not in this picture. He was poorly cast and the actors around him were often worse. Woof. A roomful of friends and liquor didn't do much to keep most of us from falling asleep. It's predictable, dull and surprisingly amateurish despite the overall nice look of the film and effects. it's not nearly as fun or cool as the trailer suggests. Kudos to whoever made the trailer. They got me to watch it.
