'Movies Like Beowulf': Vikings on the War Path

Few things would have been more terrifying than the sight of a viking longboat cutting through the mist towards your sleepy sea-side village. Luckily, Scandinavians are now a peaceful, well coiffed bunch, and we can observe the viking culture without fear of decapitation.

'Movies Like The Lord of the Rings': Modern High-Medieval Fantasy

Modern movies in the vein of LOTR: set in imaginary worlds and defined by the epic scale of their storyline and characters. Be warned the path from here to LARPing may be deceptively short and comfortable.

'Movies Like Gladiator': Hollywood in Sword and Sandals

Ancient war and action movies, in the vein of 'Gladiator' and '300': ancient heroes duking it out against mythological monsters, Persians, and wooly mammoths. Check out our 'Great Medieval Action' list for similar themes set at a later date.

'Movies Like Kingdom of Heaven': Action-Packed Medieval Grit

Movies in the vein of 'King Arthur': gritty action set in the Middle Ages (or thereabouts). Gone are the chivalry filled Arthurian adventures of the 70s and 80s; the medieval epic of today is gritty, dark, and littered with hacked off limbs!

Gerard Butler Action

Are those abs real or spray-painted on? Only his make-up artist knows. All that you need to know is that Gerard Butler is highly capable of killing multiple enemies with guns, swords, and remote control robots.
