Alien vs... Viking? You'd better believe it.

James Caviezel, who seems not to have got over his Christ role, plays another redeemer here, an "outlander" arriving in Norway from space and running into a community of Vikings, circa 709AD. John Hurt's king and his band of hairy pillagers have been menaced by a fire-breathing monster, which Caviezel knows of old and must now help them destroy. Do you need to be told it's preposterous? Probably not. But you may be pleasantly surprised to hear it's also quite enjoyable.
