On his journey, cultured Ahmad Bin Fadlan from Baghdad finds himself among rowdy Vikings. Slowly, he earns their trust and they welcome him in their society. But now they all will have to defend themselves from bloodthirsty creatures that devour the flesh of their enemies.
This thrilling action-adventure was based upon a novel by famous writer Michael Crichton, who also co-produced the film. The novel itself is a loose adaptation of Beowulf. With The 13th Warrior, John McTiernan takes us deep into the historical world of Vikings. The action scenes are breathtaking as usual, while Antonio Banderas is amazing in the leading role.
