A mess. An absolute mess.

No one knows who first came up with the original story, but if they'd seen this movie, they would've:

1: Thrown up. 2: Beat up Robert Zemeckis 3: Hit their head on a wall and wished they'd never written it.

I would've done all three, but hey, that's up for debate.

First off, since when is Hrothgar Grendal's father? He Would not be stupid enough to have a kid with His mother, and neither would Beowulf, who actually, authentically killed Mrs. Grendal in the story. Second, Beowulf didn't fight Grendal naked, have a kid with Grendal's mother, or know of Wiglaf's existence at any time before the dragon battle.

If you are a fan of Beowulf, I can only say that this movie will make you hate Beowulf.

An Honest Review

It was just too much...but to be fair I saw it in 3D. The none 3D version may have actually been better, but honestly I have no way of knowing.

At first it was, well, it was wow. I had never actually seen anything in 3D, being far too young for for the first round of popular 3D movies to hit the theater, but my father assured me it was nothing compared to this...

He also assured me it didn't make him as nauseous, and sometimes I can see where he's coming from on that point.

It came out right in the first wave of the new 3D, right when 3D was becoming popular again and actually worth it.

And it was jaw dropping even if some of the motion made my old man sick.

But it was also too much. A new technology and one that was a spectacular in itself, but not exactly tested to perfection.

It seemed like a 14 year-old girl putting on make-up and not yet understanding that less is more.

Less than half an hour into it, I had no idea what was going on, the 3D was too distracting to even attempt to follow the plot.

About an hour into it, the 3D got boring, and yes, still over-the-top distracting.

By the time I left I had the feeling that I had just experienced something that I had never experienced before. I had the feeling that watching a movie on the big screen would never be the same again...but I still couldn't figure out if I saw a movie or not.

All Time Greatest

I love this movie! The scene where Beowulf battles the Sea Serpents is STILL (10 years later) the best action sequence ever committed to film. BEEOOOOOWULF!!!! Along with sweet action, frame composition, artistry, and lovingly calculated swinging CG breasts, the movie has some great themes and lines. Like, "The Age of Hero's is dead. The Christ God has killed them all and left man kind with nothing but weeping martyrs, fear, and shame." Sure, CG Malkovich is pretty creepy and does not feel real, but I blame this largely on casting someone whom we know how they should feel. Most of the characters are very well done, especially for being way ahead of it's time.

Zemeckis is the bomb, and this is him at his most fun...
