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.

This review is for the 3D only
Good/Great 3D most of the time but my Sony KDL70 did display some ghosting.
To combat this I turned the brightness all the way up. Ghosting fixed and surprisingly, after
a few minutes, the change in picture brightness looked totally fine/normal,, once my eyes adjusted.
