Adapted from the Anglo-Saxon epic poem, Beowulf, Beowulf And Grendal is a medieval adventure that tells the blood-soaked tale of a Norse warrior's battle against the great and murderous troll, Grendel. Out of allegiance to the King Hrothgar, the much respected Lord of the Danes, Beowulf leads a troop of warriors across the sea to rid a village of the marauding monster. The monster, Grendel, is not a creature of mythic powers, but one of flesh and blood - immense flesh and raging blood, driven by a vengeance from being wronged, while Beowulf, a victorious soldier in his own right, has become increasingly troubled by the hero-myth rising up around his exploits. Beowulf's willingness to kill on behalf of Hrothgar wavers when it becomes clear that the King is more responsible for the troll's rampages than was first apparent. As a soldier, Beowulf is unaccustomed to hesitating. His relationship with the mesmerizing witch, Selma, creates deeper confusion. Swinging his sword at a great, stinking beast is no longer such a simple act. Beowulf is a man caught between sides in this great shift, his simple code transforming and falling apart before his eyes. Building toward an inevitable and terrible battle, this is a tale where vengeance, loyalty and mercy powerfully entwine.

This is a decent movie. I got a blu-ray a month ago. It's a different spin on the Beowulf saga. It isn't a high budget movie, but still looks alright. Some good Scottish actors in Gerard Butler and Tony Curran.

I paid £3 for this dvd from Sainsburys not so long ago. I love Gerard Butler, so thought he would be worth the 3 Quid alone; had to switch it off half way through, it was so boring. Taking my copy to next car boot sale.

Or on blu-ray save a penny & get from Amazon for £4.98
