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

Beowulf was not at all what I expected. Once I got past that fact it was a very enjoyable movie. The whole neo-Gothic-industrial feeling to the movie almost reminded me of "the Crow" (especially the music.) The combination of suspense, action, and an interesting plot kept me riveted to my seat. I gave this movie a rating of 9, and it could have been improved only by adding a few more good solid fights.
