The 13th Warrior

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.

Ahmed is an exiled ambassador who, far from his homeland, comes across a fierce band of warriors. He is told that they are doomed to failure in a mission without a thirteenth warrior and Ahmed is given no choice but to join up to help conquer the mysterious enemy...

Based on an early work by Michael Crighton which in turn is a retelling of the Boewulf Saga, 13th Warrior is a delightfully exciting film combing a road trip, freindship and the threat of the unknown. This is Banderas at his best, a quiet, intelligent man who is able to oversome his atavistic fear of a deadly unknown, and emerge victorious
