ClarkeEntertaining. . .[Clark] handles both ideas and characters with deftness and wit; in short, the outstanding living science fiction writers is romping.-- Chicago Sun-Times.

But even as humankind enters a new golden age, an amateur astronomer points his telescope at just the right corner of the night sky and sees disaster hurtling toward Earth: a chunk of rock that could annihilate civilization. While a few fanatics welcome the apocalyptic destruction as a sign from God, the greatest scientific minds of Earth desperately search for a way to avoid the inevitable. On board the starship Goliath Captain Robert Singh and his crew must race against time to redirect the meteor form its deadly collision course. Suddenly they find themselves on the most important mission in human history--a mission whose success may require the ultimate sacrifice.

Britain, AD — a young Viking warrior, Steinar Charlie Bewley , is sent by his father the king on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. When I get a chance to review a Viking action film, I take it. Action films are my film diet staple, and small British action films pique my interest just about one hundred percent of the time. I still decided to bite the bullet. Nope, certainly not as bad as that. As a matter of fact, there are quite a few things to enjoy in Hammer Of The Gods. And that is one of the fun things about investing in a movie like Hammer Of The Gods.

Set in the violent world of Viking Britain in AD, Hammer of the Gods is the story of a young Viking warrior, Steinar, sent by his father the King on a quest to find his estranged brother, who was banished from the kingdom many years before. Steinar's epic journey across hostile territory gradually sees him emerge as the man his father wants him to be - the ruthless and unforgiving successor to his throne. This suggests a lot of room to expand, while it should reach its first milestone shortly. Follow us on. Hammer of the Gods
It also manages to be offensive on a multitude of mind-boggling levels. Only four women appear throughout Hammer of the Gods , and with the exception of one, who conforms to the barbaric male archetype, they serve no purpose other than to reinforce the patriarchal perspective from which this movie is shot. One is pelted with rocks and slashed to death, the second is only seen nude, the third is thrown down a massive hole, and the collective screen time given to them all is barely five minutes. A warrior named Steinar Charlie Bewley sets out to find his long-lost brother, who his dying father, King Bagsecg James Cosmo , thinks can help save their crumbling empire. Along the way, Steinar becomes a ferocious war hero of sorts, slaughtering anything that stands in his path. These scorched-earth action scenes, which are unapologetically bloody in a dull, tasteless fashion, eat up a huge portion of the movie, rendering us desensitized and exhausted from all the brutality by the time the climactic ending battle scene between the two estranged siblings rolls around.
