    fun but very forgettable movie. lambert was never one for choosing great roles and sadly this is another case. this came off the heels of mortal kombat and alot of the action from that film carried on to this. better then expected but its not exactly a cult favorite

    A retelling of the medieval epic poem, 'Beowulf' feels more like a film franchise opening (such as 'Mortal Kombat') than a 'solo' film fantasy. Lambert (sporting a white-haired crew-cut), is the product of a union between a Dark God (possible alien?) and a human mother. Traveling a barbaric future Earth to fight an evil force he himself may be kin to, the half-human journeys to a besieged fortress where the residents are being decimated by a 'Predator' rip-off called Grendel. Through a series of fast-cut and bloody exchanges, the major characters are weeded out, after revealing their own secrets, until the greatest secret of all is revealed by an evil alien sexpot (the eminently watchable Layla Roberts). The film features the kind of acrobatic martial arts choreographed to a rock music soundtrack that popularized 'Mortal Kombat' (although it was hard for some to accept the middle-aged Lambert backflipping his way through battles!), a quick glimpse at a pre-Mummy Patricia Velazquez, the voluptuous Rhona Mitra as Beowulf's eventual lover, Kyra, and a bit of comic relief by Brent Jefferson Lowe, as the Weaponmaster's son. While the story never generates a lot of electricity, Lambert is an old hand at this genre, and his confidence, occasional quip, and distinctive laugh have carried him through films far inferior to this! What can I say but its a good rental for a rainy day. Check it out..
