Critic Review - Chicago Sun-Times

Am I the only one who suspects that the intention of director Robert Zemeckis and writers Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary was satirical?

Not satirical, just laughably bad.

The dialog was laughably bad. The animation was captivating. Overall, the only way to see this is in theaters.

Being very familiar with Neil Gaiman's work, I doubt his intentions, at least, were satirical. Commentary on the human condition? Yes. Satirical? No.

Ebert is right, the satirical elements give the film some humorous depth. I.e. Beowulf's boasting, his naked fight, his little victory gesture, etc.
