On the other hand, the setting of the movie was great. The choice of actors were seemingly appropriate. It's just sad that I found the movie too long to watch. To put it bluntly, it was dragging me to sleep. Expand

The movie gave more to the story than the legend. It showed the human part of grendel and his tragic story and how beowulf is struggling with his problems. But the sex scenes were wierd.

Slow moving, poor use of plot tools, poorly cast (with the exception of Grendel). The film's only saving grace is occasionally interesting cinematography. If you're looking for a slice of Viking life, you're better off withThe Slow moving, poor use of plot tools, poorly cast (with the exception of Grendel).

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Pros
Cinematography, dramatic landscapes (filmed in Iceland)
Crazy, timeless story
Swords, armour, Vikings a plenty (a la 13th Warrior, LOTR)

Cons
Difficult to understand some of the accents and dialogue (Scottish, Irish, Scandinavian tongues all in the mix). Some of the tongue in cheek humour didn't seem quite appropriate.
Ended with the thud
Few action sequences (one expected more)

In my opinion this is a good movie! Don't have special effects but tell the legend in a good way. I Like this movie. Try it

Reasonable take on the Beowulf story that's well-shot and acted but has various problems with its screenplay.
