And one more bonus, the technology almost convinces us Angelina Jolie can act. Revolutionary, indeed.

... a real-life Dungeons & Dragons story brought to life... While not quite as epic as 300, it's still one hell of a good ride.

A feast of imagery coupled with magnificent drama, a rare cinematic marriage that is destined for box office gold and deservedly so.

The 3-D effects are relatively tasteful, and the visuals often stunning.

Somebody needs to tell the director to get his head out of the computer and back into humanity, because "Beowulf," while exciting at the end, is sorely lacking in humanity throughout.

"Beowulf" is an astounding, eye-popping 3-D makeover of the ancient Old English tale. If you have a choice, go see the 3-D version for added depth. "Beowulf" is a monstrous treat.

For all the visual wizardry at work on screen in Robert Zemeckis' "Beowulf," it's a wonder I found myself leaving the theater feeling lifeless and unenthusiastic.

Yes! Rock solid direction. The dynamic ups, downs, humor, and grit of the film are artfully managed to create a very sweet piece that builds smartly and climaxes commandingly.

We are the point of technological nirvana in which it makes sense to someone somewhere to use millions of dollars in money and thousands of hours of labor to digitally recreate that which an old-fashioned (dare I say outdated?) technology already provides

Vale mais pela experiência visual que representa do que pela história que conta.

How can a film based on such a classic piece of literature, with the cache of talent behind it, be so drab?

An excellent showcase for the advantages of computer-generated animation.

A wacky pop-lit hybrid that combines Lord of the Rings nerd appeal with Viking-movie brio, seasoned with naughty bits.

The biggest criticism has nothing to do with the movie itself but with the morons on the MPAA board.

Looks like the world's longest cut scene but neither as good nor as bad as it could have been. Demands the 3D large screen to be seen.

The oldest story in the English language (dating from about AD 700) combines with state of the art graphic technology to create a fast-paced and exhilarating heroic adventure.
