Film that was based on the Michael Crichton book Eaters of the Dead where an Arab courtier is force to become and ambassador to the northern nations. It was banishment for having looked at another mans wife at court and maybe more. So he was sent north which would probably lead to his doom and death. He has only Melchisidek (Omar Sharif), a friend of the family and his wits to keep him alive. For any that are interested in period films and films of the Viking and Norse cultures this is a film that you are going to enjoy. For others you might find it a bit hard to get into as there is a lot of story telling to go though to set things up for the action and fighting parts of the film. If you do make it through those you are going to be in for one hell of a ride with this film.

I read the book about a month before the movie came out, and was a little disappointed that some parts were left out of the movie, but these missing elements were added in the theme park ride down at Islands of Adventure, so Universal did its best at capturing Michael Crichton’s vision from every angle. This amazing movie was the biggest movie draw worldwide until 1997 with the advent of Titanic, and deserving of every penny it took in. It took us to a place featuring creatures most everyone has been fascinated with since they learned about dinosaurs when they were little kids. The only other truly successful franchise to use this premise of bringing dinosaurs and humans together is such a manner is the BBC’s Primeval.
