Our Score
This grisly adventure stars Stanley Weber as a prince out for bloody revenge in England in the years after the Battle of Hastings. It's about as straightforward a film as you are ever likely to see - Weber's Shadow Walker is out for vengeance (with a sword), and that's about as much plot development as the film chooses to include. As for the rest, it's a succession of gruesome fights, with enough eye-gouging and throat-slitting to make it seem more like one long, senseless action scene than a coherent story. Weber has leading-man looks, but his sullen medieval Superman says little and does little, other than dispatch numbers of snarling villains in elaborate ways. There is a brutal simplicity to the action that will appeal to some, but in terms of non-violent content Sword of Vengeance seems stretched even for a relatively short film.


In 11th century Britain, a mysterious stranger known only as Shadow Walker returns home after years in slavery and immediately turns a group of local men into ruthless killers - but do they have the ability to overthrow their tyrannical ruler? Action adventure, with Stanley Weber and Annabelle Wallis.
