Synopsis:
Set in the war-torn dark ages of 800AD Scotland, this is the story of a young Warrior-King named Alpin (Jake McGarry). When his family is murdered by a rival Pict King, Alpin and his infant brother Finn (Noah Irvine), are the sole escapees. Alpin swears to one day return, seeking vengeance and regain his rightful claim to the throne. Ten years later Alpin and Finn, return and come across a community whose children are being kidnapped by the mysterious dark 'Shadow Warriors'. When Finn gets captured, Alpin sets out to rescue him, accompanied by a Druid-monk called Lachlan (Laurence Whitley).
What ensues is a gripping adventure, culminating in a final epic battle between Alpin and Nathara (Kerry Browne), the sorceress who awoke and controls the Shadow Warriors.

Rubbish! - The Gaelic King review by KJ

Spoiler Alert
28/10/2017

It appears that bad films with very poor acting are still in vogue. I honestly fell asleep watching this rubbish. I would not give it one star!

Low budget venture with passion and heart ... - The Gaelic King review by NP

Spoiler Alert
08/12/2021

This is a low budget venture. I say that to get it out of the way. There are reviewers, and plenty of them, who will attack a low budget venture because it doesn’t have multi-million dollar CGI or effects – which is ludicrous.

I understand parts of this were Crowdfunded. What we end up with is clearly made with passion and, as far as I’m concerned looks good, features solid acting throughout and an engaging story. Occasionally, some of the dialogue is obscured by the music, and some of the fight scenes don’t quite convince.

For all that, we have well written and really nicely played characters, and an effective villain (a Vampira-esque Kerry Browne as The Sorceress) and some good set pieces.

Director Philip Todd and other assorted Todds responsible for production and writing have done a commendable job and created something with passion and heart, enthusiastically played. My score is 7 out of 10.
