Awesome: The 13th Warrior

  • Being as it is a movie about an Arab fighting cavemen with Vikings, it delivers nicely in a speech by all the main characters:
    Buliwyf: 'Lo, there do I see my father. 'Lo, there do I see...
    Herger: My mother, and my sisters, and my brothers.
    Buliwyf: 'Lo, there do I see...
    Herger: The line of my people...
    Edgtho: Back to the beginning.
    Weath: 'Lo, they do call to me.
    Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan: They bid me take my place among them.
    Buliwyf: In the halls of Valhalla...
    Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan: Where the brave...
    Herger: May live...
    Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan:...forever.
    • Ahmed's prayer before this is also great. An American film with a Muslim protagonist that treats the lead's faith with respect. Nice.
  • Buliwyf's death. After having defeated the Bad Guy, while barely being able to raise a sword, due to being poisoned, he sits down on a throne with his sword in his hand and dies standing straight, like the King he was meant to be.
  • Ahmed taking a level in badass and going into a rage once he finds out that the Wendol are actually men.
  • The twelve Norsemen volunteering for the quest illustrates Jumped at the Call nicely, with the heroic theme swelling.
