Shut your trap and fight.

This is a Russian film that takes place about 1100AD in Tmutarakan, located between the Black and Caspian Seas, along the Silk Road. There is a remnant band of Scythians, a very pagan group of mercenaries who worship Ares. The film centers on Lutobar (Aleksey Faddeev) who is the title character. He is a loyal follower of his Lord who is at odds with the Scythians. Lutobar is forced to recuse his kidnapped family, having to undergo many fights and forming an unusual alliance with Marten....seriously, his name is Marten. On the surface, the film is just another mindless Conan antics. In the end, we discover betrayal that makes it more akin to a Shakespearean play, minus the clever dialogue. Guide: No swearing. Brief partial nudity. English dubbed and subtitled.

Solid dark ages style action flick.

There are only two negative reviews for this film. It's a shame really to have any but you will always get one person moved to write a review who thinks every movie has to be high art. Then yet another paranoid soul who is convinced every good review of a B grade independent movie must be associated with the production. Thankfully neither of these things is true and if you want a solid Conan style action flick set in a dark ages type period this lives up to that wish. The movie has a good feel and moves along nicely after the first twenty minutes. It takes a while to fit all the players into there places but once the action starts you will know who's who and enjoy watching their story arcs play out. I also see other reviews criticising the costuming, weaponry etc used. I thought they did a good job but I guess there is no accounting for taste.

The Dark Ages, we missed you

Its not a great scripts, its good and its ok. And its not hollywood acting and surpreme VFX art and CGI. But it is gritty, dirty and violent with a beautifull setting, with actors who really are doing their best to tell a good story. Its is like watching Conan again, and I loved it. If you are a film snob and only love movies for their what ever hidden agenda, its not a movie for you. This is a dirty, small budgettet, B movie with half naked ladies, violent men in a setting that leaves nothing but a raw taste of blood in your mouth.
