Storyline

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 John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

User Reviews

Christopher Lambert scores again.
8 February 1999 | by Iceman#1See all my reviews

Christopher Lambert plays Beowulf, a man born half of heaven and half of hell, and he does this part perfectly, not since Mortal Kombat have I seen him this good. The first chance you get to see Beowulf, then do it. Go and see it, you won't be disappointed, Beowulf is a great movie. I give it 10 out of 10.
