Anyone heard or seen this movie?

Release Date: 11 July 2008

Genre: Action | Adventure | Sci-Fi more

Tagline: It destroyed his world. He won't let it destroy ours.

Plot:During the reign of the Vikings, Kainan, a man from a far-off world, crash lands on Earth, bringing with him an alien predator known as the Moorwen. Though both man and monster are seeking revenge for violence committed against them, Kainan leads the alliance to kill the Moorwen by fusing his advanced technology with the Viking's Iron Age weaponry.

Taken from: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0462465/


I had not heard of it before, but saw it one the website for the local discounted movie theater nearest us. My husband took me to see it today.

I enjoyed it but there was not much sci-fi in it, in my opinion. The action was decent and I like the lead female character. I believe the plot line above touches the main points of the story.

I was just surprised that I had not seen any advertisments for it and was wondering if any of y'all had.

Never hear about nuttin' over here. :(

:lol:

Sounds kinda like Hidden with Kyle MacWhat'sHisName from Dune ... or more like the one where the alien cop is chasing the drug dealer alien who shoots people up with cocaine straight to the heart and then spikes their brains to extract the endorphens ... or dorphlundgrens? :P

The Age of Vikings setting is the novel twist, I reckons. I imagine it'll end up on Fox Movies eventually.... :)

I don't think I have either. Cool cast.
