Product Description

In the age of heroes comes the mightiest warrior of them all, Beowulf. After destroying the overpowering demon Grendel, he incurs the undying wrath of the beast’s ruthlessly seductive mother who will use any means possible to ensure revenge. The ensuing epic battle throughout the ages, immortalizing the name Beowulf. Academy Award winner director Robert Zemeckis tells the oldest epic tale in the English language with the most modern technology, advancing the cinematic forum through the magic of digitally enhanced live action. A stellar cast is led by Ray Winstone (The Departed, Sexy Beast) in the title role. Joining him are Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins as the cursed King Hrothgar, John Malkovich, Robin Wright Penn, Brendan Gleeson, Crispin Glover, Alison Lohman and Oscar Winner Angelina Jolie as Grendel’s mother.

This is arguably the best interpretation, the most faithful in spirit, of Beowulf I have seen. It is a serious work of computer animation, not at all some feeble, flippant, light-hearted, half-hearted 'teenage action flick'. Quite epic, quite tragic, quite disturbing where it ought to be. An Adult tale. Grendel is indeed most assuredly a satisfying monster. Were the picture real-life filmwork, I might imagine an award of some sort finding Angelina Jolie.

Again, I wasn`t expecting much, but the film proved itself a sober epic.

You cannot have too many versions of a classic "Beowulf" handed down verbally for many years and eventually written around 700. It was suggested that the story when written down was by monks and may have been altered for their purpose. Some versions are too far in left field; yet other versions or views can enhance the story. This rendition was just downright fun to watch.

Yep this is the old English story of heroes and monsters. You may find a few differences as who was Grendel's father. In addition, Angelina Jolie gets to play a seductive mother.

Unfortunately, the movie relies too much on the GCI gimmick (with a video game look)and many well-known actors.

The version I watched is the director's cut and Blu-ray. Some good DVD extras help fill in the missing parts of the story.
