An average movie

To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Gerard Butler and Sara Polley, I thought I might as well give it a try. Basically, there was a time when I would buy a whole bunch of really obscure movies on DVD with such deals like ‘5 dvds for 5 euro’. Well, that was one of those. Eventually, it doesn’t happen really often but I just didn... read more

But Hrothgar spares the life of the troll's strange young son, who with the passage of years grows to become Grendel (Ingvar Sigurdsson), a fearsome ... read more

Description: The blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior's battle against the great and murderous troll, Grendel. Heads will roll. Out of allegiance to the King Hrothgar, the much respected Lord of the Danes, Beowulf leads a troop of warriors across the sea to rid a village of the marauding monster. The monster, Grendel, is not a creature of mythic powers, but one of flesh and blood - immense flesh and raging blood, driven by a vengeance from being wronged, while Beowulf, a victorious soldier in his own right, has become increasingly troubled by the hero-myth rising up around his exploits. Beowulf's willingness to kill on behalf of Hrothgar wav ... (more)

“ne of the oldest epic poems in the English language gets a robust visual interpretation in this historical epic shot on location in Iceland. Hrothgar (Stellan Skarsgård) is a Danish king who murders a troll that has been terrorizing his countryside. But Hrothgar spares the life of the troll's strange young son, who with the passage of years grows to become Grendel (Ingvar Sigurdsson), a fearsome warrior intent upon avenging his father's death. As Grendel begins his slaughter of the king's closest confidants, Hrothgar realizes his life is in danger, and he calls upon the brave and fearless Beowulf (Gerard Butler) to track down and kill Grendel. As Beowulf and his band of warriors search for the vicious and elusive Grendel, he crosses paths with Selma (Sarah Polley), a beautiful and sensuou” read more

Eventually, it doesn’t happen really often but I just didn’t really know what to think of this movie. Indeed, one one hand, it was not bad and fairly entertaining but, on the other hand, it looked pretty cheap and clumsy. Concerning Gerard Butler, he made this movie just before getting his breakthrough with ‘300’. Through the years, there has been quite a few adaptations of the ancient poem ‘Beowulf’ and I think it was nice touch that they shot” read more
