Description
Inspired by the epic Old English poem of the same name, director Robert Zemeckis's digitally rendered film follows the Scandinavian hero Beowulf (Ray Winstone) as he fights to protect the Danes from a ferocious beast named Grendel (Crispin Glover). Though at first Grendel seems invincible, Beowulf eventually manages to defeat him in a desperate battle to the death. Devastated by her son's violent demise at the hands of Beowulf, Grendel's mother (Angelina Jolie) sets out in search of revenge. Later, Beowulf faces the biggest challenge of his life when he attempts to slay a powerful dragon. Anthony Hopkins, Robin Wright Penn, Alison Lohman, John Malkovich, and Brendan Gleeson co-star in an epic fantasy adventure penned by Roger Avary and Neil Gaiman. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

display_descriptionThis is not your high school teacher's Old English epic poem, but a motion-capture animated film. In the age of heroes comes the mightiest warrior of them all, Beowulf, to aid King Hrothgar by slaying the monster Grendel. The troubled Danish kingdom has been bedeviled by the demon for years, but in killing him, Beowulf incurs the undying wrath of the beast's ruthlessly seductive mother. After killing her, Beowulf returns to the castle and becomes king. Years pass, and all seems well. Is the age of demons finally over? Before he dies, however, Beowulf must face his past weakness and expiate his sins--if his kingdom is to survive.
