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

Intense, enthralling, Christopher Lambert is Beowulf!
After waiting so long to see this movie, which has still not been released in the US, I was not disappointed. The special effects were terrific, the characters totally believable and each given adequate attention by the director. Easy to follow - if you don't see this movie because the story is so difficult to read, throw the story out and get this movie. As usual, Christopher's performance is stunning and the black leather fits him like a glove. I don't know why this movie it isn't running on the SciFi Channel right now. The perfect film for this channel, and the scifi community would devour it. A+!
