Hammer Of The Gods review

“Kiss my fucking axe!” growls one of Steinar’s (Charlie Bexley) Viking warriors, anachronistically. The year, after all, is 871, and their mission is to cross a (suspiciously) sparsely populated Snowdonia looking for their tribe’s AWOL heir, overcoming Saxons and heathen intrigue on the way.
 
Gamely directed and acted, but a little threadbare in terms of plot and design, it’s suitably savage but not quite fun enough to forgive the flaws.
 
Imagine TV’s The Vikings with a twist and you won’t be disappointed, but the biggest heroics on show here are in the budget-stretching department.
