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