Scandinavian warriors did not wear horns on their helmets. Given the close-quarters nature of many Scandinavian combats, this would have been foolish. See more »

Better than "Clash of the Titans (2010)"
10 April 2011 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

Well, first, I'll say I haven't read Beowulf's original poem, but my approach to the movie was watching it as a movie, not as a loyal adaptation. Actually, I was zapping the channels, then I watched an scene from what appeared a sword & sorcery movie, then I grew interested.

Well, I gotta say this being a "low-budget-movie" is despicable, since it really caught my attention. It has very decent costuming, locations, music, good pacing, convincing acting, good scripts, dialogues, characters are congruent and good storytelling... I don't need head-flashing CGI effects to enjoy this movie, because I look forward to the stories, the characters, the messages. I prefer the sensitive and intelligent way they told this tale than stupid movies like the recent version of Clash of the Titans, that only care about special effects and the acting, script and dialogues are totally idiot.

Well, I give this movie a good review, since I found on it good drama, great acting and realistic storytelling. Congrats to all people involved on it, you really got my respects =D
