â€śImpressively staged and engagingly violent â€¦ an axe-wielding, sword-slashing, bloodthirsty medieval actionâ€“adventure.â€ť â€“ Mark Adams, Screen Daily
â€śHammer of the Gods has a lot of B-Movie finesse to it â€¦ full of muscles, oil and fire, like something you'd expect Arnie to have starred in during the early 1980's.â€ť â€“ My Film Reviews!
â€śEntertaining â€¦ character driven, violent, the soundtrack is dubstep, it has its own aesthetic, and the scenery is gorgeous.â€ť â€“ Everyone Question
Set in Viking Britain in 871 AD, Hammer of the Gods is a visceral, intense tale set in a world whose only language is violence. A young Viking warrior, Steinar (Charlie Bewley), is sent by his dying father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, Hakan the Ferocious, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinarâ€™s long lost sibling may be the clanâ€™s last hope for stopping an approaching enemy hoard, and with time running out, Steinarâ€™s epic journey across terrifyingly hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be â€“ the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne. From director Farren Blackburn (Dr. Who, The Fades). (Dir. by Farren Blackburn, 2013, UK, 99 mins., Rated R, Magnet Releasing) Digital
