Consensus: A few rousing action sequences can't make up for Pathfinder's non-existent plot and silly dialogue.

Pathfinder's main appeal will be to connoisseurs of gore, who will find no shortage of graphically rendered stabbings, shootings, smashings, severings and slicings.

This latest bit of historical balder-dash stands in direct defiance of proven action-movie formulas, trusting its brutal concept and striking visuals to overcome a lack of star power.

Had the camera been a firing squad pointed towards its actors, their careers would have taken less damage.

The movie is filmed in a way that makes it seem like the camera has epilepsy and the color desaturation renders everything murky. Someone should remind director Marcus Nispel that there's a difference between making a music video and a feature film.

As dim and dank as a power failure in a peepshow, Pathfinder is Apocalypto without the laughs or 300 without the muscular visuals and elevating dialogue.

The fault here lies in the film's dead rhythm, which never lights the sparks necessary for an action film. The plot and action progress like an eroding lakeshore, but the energy and excitement are washed away in every scene.

Pathfinder's moody, muddy look is courtesy of music-video director Marcus Nispel, who doesn't distinguish between people and tree trunks when it comes to emotional content.

The official Pathfinder Web site is far more interesting than the movie itself, and you'll get better history lessons from the Vikings of Minnesota.

Without anything more to offer, the choreographed carnage gets stale very quickly.

I was somewhere in the middle on this one. It was a decent film with good action and a decent story but something left me wanting. Im still not sure what.
