I understand this was severly budgeted. However, that does not excuse bad filmaking. The movie tries very hard to be edgy and violent, trying to capitalize on the movie 300. Were 300 looked spectacular to look at, Pathfinder is full of poor visuals. The movie's "look," is difined by a darkened camera, covering everybody in grime. The "fight scenes," are just various shots of dismemberments, decapitations, disimbowlments, and so forth. Don't forget viking and Indian stereotypes galore. I say that the violence is not an issue because it is not effecting or horrific in any way, unless you are under 10 years of age. It is just shots of carnage, and poor ones at that. It all gets boring after awhile. I couldn't wait for the best part: the end credits.
