MOVIE REVIEW: The 13th Warrior

10 years, 7 months ago at Apr 27 4:03
     Based on Michael Crichton’s novel “Eaters of the Dead,” it is about an Arabian emissary Ibn Fadlan (played by Antonio Banderas) who joins a band of ultra-tough, Viking warriors led by Buliwyf in defending a small kingdom against a horde of supernatural barbarians.      Sounds good enough for a medieval advent... read more

Even though this movie has a rather lousy reputation, since I have a weak spot for John McTiernan's work, I was still eager to check it out. Basically, following the impressive 'Die Hard: With a Vengeance', McTiernan followed up with this ambitious adventure flick but, unfortunately, it was a flop and nowadays we don't hear much from this director anymore which is quite a shame. Honestly, I don'... read more

A decent adaptation of a fantastic retelling of the Beowulf myth (by Michael Crichton) that opts for realism instead of fantasy and has a nice underlying theme about finding beauty and honor in other's cultures. Though hobbled by the odd casting choice for the lead and a short running time that stunts some of the character development early on it mostly pays off with the wonderful parallels, rousi... read more

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- July 2019 (28 movies items)

" Hulu- 1hr. 43min. First Viewing The 13th Warrior is just a complete slog. A story that should be a fun, swashbuckling throwback is rendered a lifeless bore by an anemic script and flat direction. There's really not much to say about this one. There was rarely a moment that went by that I didn't feel guilty for not turning it off and watching something with, at the bare minimum, a pulse.

"First viewing - June 11th Sigh. This movie. I mean, it's fine I guess but I couldn't get too excited about it. Kinda odd having Antonio Banderas playing an Arab, but hey at least it's not a White dude. I was entertained, but only passively, and I can't think of much worth discussing about it."
