I've seen Beowulf twice, once at the pictures and again when I rented it out. It was much
better than the previous one with Gerard Butler, I think it was called Beowulf and Grendel
. I found that one quite strange and puzzling, but Beowulf
was really good and I would probably watch it again. I like the transition of young Warrior Beowulf to old 'unsatisfied' King Beowulf. He gained all that free power and glory by creating his downfall (his golden son/dragon). Temptation doesn't help anyone much in the end.
Angelina Jolie played her part well, even if it'were only her voice, (unless she was hooked up to a computer and played her part whilst covered in little white sensors). She was dangerous, crafty and beautiful, she played it quite well, and I think I've opened that line up to one of Vir's female jokes...
Overall really good, I would recommend it to anyone who likes action, good story and people who like to fight in the nuddy
