This is certainly one of the better Norse blood and thunder epics. It's brutal and violent, just like the age in which it is set and the story is believable, a good one and well acted by all.
A band of Norse outlaws is driven by a furious storm to the inhospitable coast of Scotland when their ship is wrecked and they wash up on shore. They are almost immediately confronted by the local petty king's army who's forcibly conveying the king's daughter in a locked cart on her way to be delivered to a neighboring kingdom for marriage.
The band manages to fight them off though they are outnumbered, taking the feisty girl as a hostage.
From then on it's a fight to survive as the king sends his two best vicious "nobles" after them with another army. As it happens, they don't want the girl to survive to eventually take the throne with her husband, so the pursuers intentions are to kill her along with exterminating the Viknigs.
What ensues is an exciting, hair-raising chase, with many bloody confrontations, traps and evasions along the way as the little band is slowly killed off along their way. The excitement never lets up as the desperation grows.
