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

In school I was a fan of the original story of Beowulf so when I heard of a film version with Christopher Lambert I was over the moon. This however is very Albert Pyun. It takes place in what I think is another planet sort of a cross between sci-fi and fantasy. An "Outpost" is besieged by a nasty thing that kills people left right and center, as a result a cordon is put round the Outpost to prevent the evil from escaping. Beowulf comes to the fray, beats up barbarians with dazzling kung-fu and acrobatic stunts (all done to a pounding techno soundtrack) and soon ends up in the Outpost where he acts oddly and meets the gorgeous Kyra (Can't remember the name of the actress, but she was the original model for Lara Croft). Along the way we have a very lovely lady (Layla Roberts) who is not someone to mess with BIG TIME. Most of the FX in this film are great, maybe not the Grendel monster, but Grendel's mother is without a doubt one of the greatest monsters ever committed to film, very Dorian Cleavenger. If you're looking for something like the original story - look elsewhere, but if you like Highlander and movies like Beastmaster, Sword & The Sorcerer, Conan, and er, The Scorpion King, you must watch this film, just be sure to leave your belief outside the door. A cheesy B movie delight
