Overview

The epic eighth-century poem of Saxon lore gets moved into the Scandinavian future in this science fiction adaptation of Beowulf. Here, Beowulf Christopher Lambert rescues a damsel in distress, Pendra Patricia Velasquez, who is being menaced by two men with large swords and bad tempers. Beowulf hears tell of Grendel, a force of evil that feasts on the flesh of warriors of Hrothgar Oliver Cotton, who are holding their ground in the Outpost. Before long, Beowulf finds himself doing battle with Hrothgar's daughter Kyra Rhona Mitra, Hrothgar's master of arms, Roland Goetz Otto and even Grendel's mother Layla Roberts. Patricia Velasquez appeared in Beowulf shortly before she filmed her showy turn in The Mummy, while Layla Roberts's resume includes an October 1997 appearance as Playboy's Playmate of the Month. Beowulf was completed and released in Europe before another version of the same story hit the screens, Disney's The 13th Warrior aka Eaters Of The Dead.

    OK????

    Yes I totally agree that this movie is nothing like the book. It was soo funny to watch how off it was. My whole class and I were laughing at it. However, the guys, being 17- 18 year olds, really liked grendel's mom.

    Beowulf in Name Only

    If you're looking for a video version of the Anglo-Saxon epic poem by the same name that plagues high school students every year, you'll need to keep on looking. The only things this movie has in common with the epic poem is the title, a few character names, and, uh... well, that's about it. Perhaps the movie should be called ''Beowulf Meets the Twilight Zone,'' because that is what happened. The original story of a superhero who has come to save a nation of people who have been terrorized by Grendel the Monster (and later his mother) is missing. The confrontation between Hrothgar's main warrior (Unferth) has been removed. Hrothgar's daughter, instead of having been married off to a political enemy in a doomed attempt to bring peace to the kingdom, is, in this movie, an entirely new character. For what it is, this version of Beowulf is a campy, funny, sci-fi adventure which is based on the epic poem Beowulf about as closely as ''O Brother, Where Art Thou'' is based on ''The Odyssey.'' Watch it for the fun of it, but don't think you'll help your English grade!

    Anyone who thinks this movie sucks should be shot!!!

    This is a classic action movie. Christopher Lambert kicks as an actor. Anybody who has beef with the sex scenes has issues with their sexuality.

    EXCELLENT MOVIE!!!

    I think that this movie was an excellent combionation between fights and comedy. I think that the best part in the entire movie was every part with Patriia Velasquez. She is soo hot and such a good actress.

    EVERYONE is titled to an opinion.....

    I personaly found Beowulf to be a good movie, and not as bad as the other review claims. If the movie was purely based on the novel with out a little extra the movie would not be near as interesting. The special effects are good, and the wild fight scenes top it off.

    Comedy not to be missed...

    Beowulf the movie is anything BUT a horror/adventure movie whatever! It's A JOKE! If you're going to rent this in stead of reading the actual novel I suggest you think twice. You're better off renting Mortal Combat/The Haunting/Army of Darkness...etc... Which were just a few of the movies they COPIED. The plot is basically this guy Beowulf (Christopher Lambert) has to go kill this monster called Grendel inside a castle. The monster looks like preadator and his mommy looks like a playboy bunny. There is TONS of unnecessary sex scenes of his mommy doing the nasty!!!! Christopher Lambert also from the Highlander... is a HORRIBLE ACTOR... Everytime they zoom in on his face with his platinum hair dye #5 my ENTIRE CLASS CRACKED UP... It looked like a bad SNL skit!!>.. well there's my 2 cents..
