FAR better movie than the Zemeckis's movie Beowulf. I Found Beowulf and Grendel to be a decent film that is closer to the actually mythology then the Zemeckis movie will ever be. I found the characters to be pretty realistic the hero was not 100% made out what the myth was making him into ..He had actual feet of clay...The king and Queen were totally realistic in my opinion. Grendel was not entirely the monster he had just cause for his revenge...This film was more true to life of what was going on in the 700's.
It doesn't really fallow the story but I liked the fact that it showed a possible reality to things-- but it did throw in a bit of the magic. So it would have been nice if they stayed with one thing or the other.
More than a little long winded and drawl. I had high hopes for this one, but I actually found myself fast forwarding through the movie; an awful script coupled with even more awful acting. *I literally felt like an epileptic wanting to watch a movie I know I'm not supposed to because of the warning at the beginning about and flashing lights!*
