This post-apocalyptic future story is based on the 8th century Saxon epic poem about the knight who battled a monster in a medieval castle. In this story, Beowulf is a wanderer who learns about a man-eating creature called Grendel which comes in the night to devour warriors trapped at the Outpost. The Outpost is ruled by Hrothgar. He has a daughter, whose husband may have been murdered by the Outpost's master of arms. Written by

As an avid reader of the poem Beowulf, I was shocked to hear that so few people liked the movie. Granted it had a few glitches and the portrayal of Beowulf in an almost modern nature, I admit, did not make me want to watch it at first. But I finally did sit down and watch Beowulf. The way that Mr. Lambert and his fellow actors portrayed their parts were superb. Grendel and Beowulf. I think, would be terribly hard to portray. But it was well done. The setting that I was so worried about added to the story in a way that I never could have understood before seeing it. I was very pleased with directing, acting and stunts. I was mostly pleased with the way that Grendel was portrayed. But as said before, other than a few glitches and the artistic freedom that all directors take, it was an all in all good movie.
