Director John McTiernan takes viewers back to 900 A.D. in THE 13th WARRIOR. After courting "an untouchable" Muslim princess, Ahmed (Antonio Banderas) is banished and sent North as an emissary. When traveling from Baghdad to Saqaliba, he stumbles into an encampment of Vikings. At first repulsed by their Nordic ways, Ahmed soon grows fond of the Northerners and joins their party.
When news is brought that a horde of flesh eating monsters are ravaging the land, the mystic Oracle ordains that a group of 13 must travel to fight their evil doings. Twelve Nordes rom the party are chosen, Ahmed, a Muslim, is picked as the thirteenth. Knowing that defeat is eminent, the 13 warriors must undergo indeterminable odds to battle and rid the land of the horrific flesh eaters.
The 13th Warrior is an epic tour de force created by two of Hollywood's most ingenious: Michael Crichton (JURASSIC PARK, LOOKER) and John McTiernan (PREDATOR, THE LAST ACTION HERO). Its sheer epicness and style make it an astonishing spectacle. Never before has such detail and large scale beauty been present in a Viking film.

Hang on to your seats and enjoy the ride! Action, action, and more action! Antonio Banderas, the 13th and non- Norse Warrior, join forces to rid another village from "the flesh eaters". Not only does he, a diplomat and man of peace, become a Warrior but he learns about the customs, behaviors, language, and philosophy of the "Norseman".
In the end he is one with them in body and spirit, known as the"Spirit of the Comitatus" as he risks his life to protect the village form the the "Bear-like fleh eating" Verm.
This movie is not for the faint of heart. There is plenty of violence, gore, and blood- letting. Keep the young ones away or they may be inclined to have "Nightmares". However, this is one excellent movie for adults. The cast is magnificant and the portrayal of the Norse culture is educatioal as well.
I really enjoyed this movie and have sen it 3 or 4 times since purchasing it. This is a terrific Holloween Flick!
I had this movie on VHS and have looked for it everywhere on DVD found it here. I Love this movie. The are so historic correct from the type of horses they ride to the old prayers. I do hope that everyone enjoys this movie as much as I do. A little graphic for young children but still great movie. I am so HAPPY that you guys had it. Great Job Overstock.
