Beowulf, Grendel

Always make sure of DVD-compatibility !!!

Denmark, circa 500 AD: As her village is terrorized by the homicidal demon Grendel (Josh Kern), fearless Princess Freawaru (Morgan Shaley Renew) and her sidekick and chronicler Shaper (Cleveland Langdale) set out to find a hero to defeat Grendel - and they stumble upon Beowulf (Jennifer Hill) and her entourage, and she slaughters an imp right in front of them. Suitably impressed, and also drawn to her as a woman, Freawaru invites Beowulf back to her village, and Beowulf gladly accepts the challenge. And only back in the village and threatened by Grendel does Beowulf turn out to not quite be the gung-ho heroine she has made herself out to be, as her strengths relie more in a mix of boasts and bribery, but nevertheless she can broker a peace between Grendel and the village, maybe even lasting friendship - well, if it wasn't for an ill-advised villager (Aaron Blomberg) taking advantage of Grendel letting his guard down, which in the process might create a bigger threat than Grendel has ever been at his worst ...


If you're looking for pure spectacle with a cornucopia of CGI effects here, you will be disappointed, as this is a rather low-key affair based much more on solid storytelling than mere action - and that's really one of the strengths of the film as it gives its story and its characters enough air to breathe, moves at an intentionally relaxed pace to properly develop things and put an emphasis on dialogue. That's not to say that the film's a bore at all, as it shows wit in both dialogue and storytelling - and that's not even counting Beowulf's elegant gender swap -, and is strong on atmosphere - and is just nice, if low budget, fantasy cinema.
