Conclusion: You should enjoy 'Hammer of the Gods' if you're wanting a cheap action movie with a lot of blood. But if you're looking for something a little more, I imagine you'll walk away unhappy. The video and audio presentations here are top notch, with some decent enough extras, yet repetitive. This is certainly not as fun as 300 and nowhere near as good as 'Apocalypse Now', so I suggest renting before purchasing.
Summary: According to its director, Hammer of the Gods is supposed to be an action movie, which is true as far as it goes. But the typical action movie occurs in a setting that's sufficiently familiar, or can be explained quickly enough, that the audience settles in comfortably to enjoy the thrill ride.
Excerpt: Farren Blackburn's Hammer of the Gods is an unbearably stupid exercise in gore that deserves to die the same cruel, soulless death that nearly every character does at some point in the film. It's an entry-level love letter to Zach Snyder, the type of movie someone might draft in their high school video class and then piece together in front of a green screen after having watched 300 the night before. It also manages to be offensive on a multitude of mind-boggling levels.
Conclusion: Hammer Of The Gods isn't particularly deep even if at times it does feel like it has the potential to get there. Rather, it's a movie with reasonably lofty aspirations that it never quite gets to and which instead delivers a fairly brainless action/quest story, the kind we've seen told before and told with more interest than we see here.
