Bloody 'Pathfinder' is all guts, no glory

The Baltimore Sun

Here's my nomination for future grindhouse double-bill from hell: Pathfinder and Apocalypto.

Pathfinder, a tale of Vikings clashing with North American Indians, is hackwork that's heavy on the hack. Although it's based on a highly regarded 1987 Norwegian movie of the same name, derived from a Lapland legend, this movie simply pumps out the gore in heavy slashes, video-game style, for testosterone-crazed teens who lap it up.

Pathfinder (20th Century Fox) Starring Karl Urban, Russell Means, Moon Bloodgood, Clancy Brown. Directed by Marcus Nispel. Rated R. Time 88 minutes.
