This review is from: Beowulf (DVD)
Initially the animated style of the move turned me off. I thought why don't they just make it live action? But I really like this movie after watching it despite my initial misgivings.The story is epic, the acting terrific, and yes the animation is actually quite good.
I also had misgivings about the story itself, which suggests that Beowulf is less than honest about his dealings with Grendel's mother.But if you view the movie not as a canonical Beowulf, but as a representation of the spirit of Norse Mythology the movie has much worth.
The story is different than the poem, but the spirit of the movie is closer to the spirit of Norse Mythology than many other versions of this story put to film.The mother of Grendel is obviously the queen of all wicked witches, Gullveig as well as Angreboda the mother of monsters.Beowulf gives in to temptation, but in the end proves that he is a hero.
