Synopsis from DVD Cover:
Experience a new world of graphic, hard-core action with this Unrated Extended Edition of Pathfinder - packed with extreme battle footage not shown in theaters, plus an army of kick-ass deleted scenes and special features! Savage Viking invaders bent on death and destruction clash with the iron-willed protectors of a new world in this heroic action-adventure filled with intense battle scenes and breathless, primal violence.

Quick Review:
I'm going to skip all the inaccuracies of Vikings coming to North America so early and that they were able to bring not only an army, but horses and other things. I'm just going to talk about the movie.

The story is about a Viking boy left behind while his people destroyed a Native American village. Being found by a woman, he is brought up to be one of local villagers, but still knows his roots. When the Vikings come back 15 years later to attack once again, he decided to face his past and stand up for the people that have made him their own.

First let me say that this isn't a bad movie, but not a good one either. The characters are underdeveloped, the performances are ok at best and some scenes are just plain ridiculous. On the other hand, the cinematography and the scenery are amazing, and the story is interesting. Outside of the whole "I don't know who I am" part, which the movie is based on, the story is an old one and is done in a way that many people may find inspirational. It is one man versus many, and even though he does not stand a chance physically, he must use his wits to outsmart the giant Vikings.

There are scenes in the movie which I can't stand; like dark cave shots that are impossible to figure out or about five minutes of sledding down a mountain, which is very James Bond-like. The love story that was thrown in is hardly believable, but the message is loud and clear.

There is a decent amount of bonus material, that I found enjoyable. You get the standard commentary, which is done by director Marcus Nispel, plus seven deleted scenes, with an optional commentary. Some of the deleted scene deserved to be cut out, like the one where Starfire molests Ghost when he passes out, and the ridiculous farting scene. In addition, the DVD comes with a few featurettes. This is where it gets interesting as we get to see some of the behind the scenes stuff, including the stunts, the costumes and much more about Nispel. Finally, you get the concept trailer and the theatrical trailer for the film, in addition to a few others for completely different movies.

In Conclusion:
"Pathfinder" is not as terrible as some say; clearly the director spent lots of time figuring out how to spill blood and cut heads off, rather than on the actual story. But what can you expect from a man, whose big Hollywood movie is the 2003 "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre"? I say rent it, but only if you have seen "300" already.
