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

I was made to read Beowulf in High School and I cannot understand why anyone would want to make a movie out of a bad poem. That being said, I was your typical post- nuclear... blah, blah film. Here we see many anachronisms that serve as characters and relatively unknown actors trying to do the best they can with a bad script based on a bad poem. I think Christopher was fine and his leading lady was appropriate. The love story should have been expanded and a little less aerial tumbling would have made the story stick together better. But you know what you are getting with this type of film so I say sit back and enjoy the fun. I rather liked the leather, chain mail and megaphones ... all they needed to make the entire movie complete would have been cell phones and laptops computers. So give Chris the the rest of the cast a break -- it was as entertaining as Mad Max and not nearly as irritating. Score for the DVD: 5 out of possible 10.
