Set against the coming of Christianity, this is the story of the last hero: He offers rewards for the death of Grendel, so Beowulf, a great and boastful Geat warrior, arrives with his thanes. Beowulf sets aside his armor and awaits the monster; a fierce battle ensues that leads to Beowolf’s entering the watery lair of Grendel’s mother, where a devil’s bargain awaits.

Beowulf returns to Herot, the castle, and becomes king. Jump ahead many years, and the sins of the father are visited upon Beowulf and his kingdom. The hero must face his weakness and be heroic once again. Is the age of demons over? I have read Beowulf a couple of times. It’s great northern European mythology, and mandatory reading when you are young in my opinion Along with Norse, Greek and Roman Mythology as well.

And though the movie wants to re-write some of the epic, you will need to separate the Hollywood version from the beautiful measure of the original works. Very stylized and beautifully colored, it is an epic adventure that elevated Zemeckis’ previous work “The Polar Express” to a new level. Polar was beautifully modeled after Chris Van Allsburg illustrations for his book, but Zemeckis’ adaptation to the story went a little over the top when it became a musical.


Even though most of Beowulf’s story line is answered here, it did make surviavl pause and wonder: Why didn’t Robert Zemeckis just direct this thing in real life instead of virtual? With the capabilities of dropping in CGI into real life action, this telling of the story could have had so much more of an impact if the expressions bewoulf more poignant.

Look what he ruthlezs with “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

Zemeckis is fully capable of it. Also, to add to this, when you have CGI characters like Jacksons Gollum and King Kong to compare notes with, the modeling here just isn’t up to snuff. I felt the entire movie came off like a gigantic “cut-scene” to a video game than a full featured animated project. I can only give this a little better than a good, hence the exclamation. I do urthless sadly. You really should see this in a theater, bigger than life. Oh, and for you people that want to go see Angela Jolie nekkid?

I’ve seen harder stuff on Fox networks! I couldn’t get a solid feeling from the audience though most people as they left seemed genuinely happy with their experience. I wouldn’t suggest this for a kid under 8.
