Mario Van Peebles,
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

Christopher Lambert is a GOD (Well sort of, in a movie)
Beowulf is just one of those movies... I rented it because I had read and studied the poem and found it to be interesting. I wasn't expecting much from this, but this was just bad. Set in England about 1400 years ago there is a castle being attacked by a horrible creature. A mysterious hero then arrives in an attempt to save the day. Normal story, right? Well throw in a handful of present day slang with American accents, some bizarre weapons beyond belief, let alone for the time (I'm surprised nobody pulled out a Baretta) and then Beowulf, a demon/god(Christopher Lambert). Lambert was perfectly typecast for this role, much like Raiden in Mortal Kombat. Other than Lambert fitting the role however aside from a few nice graphics/special effects, the movie had virtually nothing going for it. It wasn't that entertaining to watch and frankly I'd recommend skipping this one.
