...I guess it's shy
13 February 2010 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

This is the very shortest featurette on the 2-Disc Director's Cut DVD of Beowulf, with a running time of a mere 2 minutes. As such, it doesn't delve deeply into the subject. I don't know, maybe they didn't feel there was a lot to say; it really does feel like this should have been implemented in one of the others. It consists of interviews, behind the scenes footage, including shots of the animation before it is entirely completed and clips of the film. The person who gets the most camera-time is Winstone, and it is really cool to hear him talk about wanting to play a Viking and then getting the title role in this, after having given up hope that he could get to. It's also nice that Zemeckis says that the man was, indeed, cast for his vocal performance, as it fit perfectly, which I completely agree with. This is fine enough, it just doesn't last very long, and really only amounts to saying that with the technology, they don't have to choose actors by their appearance, or be limited to what they can find, as far as regular mortals go. I recommend this to anyone who wants to watch it. 7/10
