little more than brooding style

In 1066, William the Conquerer defeated the Saxons at the Battle of Hastings. After the battle, a brutal campaign of subjugation descended upon the Saxon people known as The Harrowing. Earl Durant slaughters 100,000 Saxons and rules The North with his sons Lord Artus and Lord Romain. Shadow Walker (Stanley Weber) is an avenging warrior. He is joined by Anna (Annabelle Wallis) and her surviving people.

The brooding violence is interesting. The plot, such as there is one, is a slow muddle. Dialog is sparse. In the end, there is little more than the brooding style and a bit of violence. Even the action lacks kinetic intensity. It's a lower budget production in eastern Europe and it doesn't have the grand size. The moody atmosphere is not enough.

Revenge of the Lone Warrior

Actually it's a good movie, simple story and full of actions. Based on historic background after Battle of Hastings and a flashback family feud from the past, the result is a bloody vengeance film. A minus for this film only the color grading, that almost like a black and white movie. The rest is good.

Visually Beautiful, But Lacking in Story

Sword of Vengeance is a revenge story. That's pretty much it. It isn't complicated, there are no real twists and turns in the road as you watch. To be honest, it's completely predictable. But that doesn't mean it's necessarily a bad movie, but it doesn't lend much to the viewer.

Jim Weedon's cinematic entry is a short piece about the Normans and Saxons after decades of war, violence and death. Stanley Weber plays the lead character; Shadow Walker, a swordsman on an path of retribution for the death of a loved one, and honour bound not to break his oath of revenge.

Not much happens in this movie. It's very A to B to C, and the flashbacks throughout don't lend much to the overall plot. It's simple, and some viewers might like that, but in my opinion it's a little too vague throughout. It's unclear, and it may entirely turn off the viewer by the end. Although there is some decent swordplay and some well choreographed fight scenes to keep the viewer entertained. But the dialogue is seriously lacking and several actors seem very untrained at best.

What is interesting is they visual aspect in this movie. There is a nice contrast between very light and very dark in every frame. A lot of close up visuals of their faces really lend to the grit and violence that the men and women in the film endure. There are some very nice shots full of such visual beauty, that it really surprised me at times.

A rather forgetful little film, but I believe Jim Weedon has a lot to offer in the future.
