The film was released in Malaysia and the United States on 12 September 2013 and 4 October 2013 respectively. Upon its release, Vikingdom was a major box office bomb with grossing only $550,000 against an estimated production budget of only $15 million and it received general poor critical reaction from critics, who considered the film as one of the worst films ever made.
In the midst of time comes the clanging of steel against steel, and in a collision of myth and history, there is the "Vikingdom". Based on Viking folklore and the poems they left, "Vikingdom" is a fantasy, action adventure film about a forgotten king named Eirick. Tasked with the impossible odds to defeat Thor, the Norse god of thunder, who is on a mission to gather key ancient relics: the Mjölnir, his hammer from Valhalla; the Necklace of Mary Magdalene from Mitgard; and the Horn from Helheim. This needs to be accomplished before the sinister event of the Blood Eclipse, or else dire consequences will be faced by all in the realm.

Dennis Harvey of Variety remarks of the film being "lively and colorful, albeit in ways that will often seem cheesy to audiences accustomed to more sophisticated and expensive fare." He also noted of the screenplay being "a near-nonsensical string of action setpieces [...] not without humor" though the dialogue presented "often amuses unintentionally."
