Continuity mistake: When the Wendol are attacking the village at night, one of them is shot by an arrow and falls off his horse into water. A couple of minutes later the same shot of the Wendol falling is used again for another arrow hit.

Continuity mistake: Before the first battle scene, the king is telling them about the Wendel. The black-haired man is seen riding his horse back to the castle. He walks up and is seen taking off his gloves. There is a shot to the king and back to the black-haired man, and his gloves are on his hands.

Trivia

The story of this film is basically a retelling of the story of Beowulf and Grendel. Buliwyf is Beowulf, the Wendol are Grendel, King Hrothgar is of course himself. Ahmed Ibn Fahalan was added to lend the story historical credence as Ahmen Ibn Fahalan really did travel north from Baghdad and encountered Viking men.
