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

Usually when you see a movie based on epic poetry like Beowulf they manage to screw it up, but definitely not this time. They managed to stay fairly true to the original story which to me is a big plus since I have read it 3 times. I would have to agree with previous comments in that Christopher Lambert did some of his best work in a while in this film. If you liked the movie I would highly suggest reading the book too(if you can handle epic poetry). I give it 9 of 10 stars.
