As the Lich King's zombie legions ravage the world, Marek, a cursed young sorceress, embarks on a quest to obtain a weapon from the gods, with her friend Dagen, a self-serving half-elf rogue. But when she joins her sworn enemy in a desperate attempt to save the world, she must recover the good in herself before her friends are all dead, and defeat the Lich King before the gods are destroyed and the world forever enslaved.

To me the fifth and final chapter of Mythica was the best. It didn't need the comic relief bits, the sideline stories were kept to a minimum and the actors and probably the whole production team have reached their maturity and made a decent film throughout. Considering this is a five movie Kickstarter series, it is nothing less than amazing.
This doesn't mean Godslayer is a perfect film, but it was the perfect ending for the series. All the characters came together in an epic finale that left everything explained and brought closure to every hero's journey.
To me, the worst part of the series was the villain, who had everything: power, a good actor to portray him, armies of undead, but lacked the one thing that would have made him interesting: a story. I feel Mythica would have been a lot better with a villain one can empathise with. This became clear near the end of the final film when there was a sort of seductive quality in his attempts to corrupt Marek. With a fully grown character, this could have worked wonders, not only at the end, but throughout the series.
Bottom line: it is a fantasy story very reminiscent of Lord of the Rings. There is a hero that has to choose the fate of the world and resist temptation from a magical yet evil artifact, while her friends must lend their support and strength to keep said hero on the right path. While not the very best of film making, it was entertaining and refreshing and I am glad to have seen it all. I can't wait for more stuff to come from Arrowstorm Entertainment.

Good, but not perfect
Mythica: The Godslayer continues where Mythica: The Iron Crown left off. The first half of the film is brilliant and I was completely immersed in the story.
I felt it lost its way though when they were trying to retrieve the Hammer of Tek. I just wish that part had made more sense and Tek's character had been given more to say and do. The story begins to make sense again once we leave Tek and the Underworld behind.
I didn't like the ending at first, it reminded me of another film with a similar ending, but I had another think about it and I realised that it was much smarter than I had first thought. Overall, Mythica: The Godslayer lived up to my expectations, 8/10.

Fantasy on an very low budget
MYTHICA: THE DRAGON SLAYER was the first film I watched in the MYTHICA film series, and it's actually the fifth instalment, so I may have been missing out on something. These are fantasy pictures done on a very low budget with a general look and feel of GAMES OF THRONES mixed with LORD OF THE RINGS. The stories and tropes present here are all very familiar and entirely predictable, but I was quite impressed by the direction and look of the costumes and scenery, which are comparable to a multi-million dollar production such as the SHANNARA TV series. Kristian Nairn cameos for the GAME OF THRONES crowd, while old-timer Kevin Sorbo shows up for exposition time.
