Beowulf and Grendel Review


In Denmark, during the 6th century, Danish king Hrothgar and his warriors kill a troll whose son, Grendel, vows revenge.

Beowulf has been changed from the classical representation to a more modern interpretation as to what if the demon depicted in the story was not a demon. In this movie, Grandall is shown as the primitive missing link of man, a advanced Neanderthal. It explains his hugeness his longer then usual arms. Also primitive man is speculated to have had greater strength then modern day man. Still a story of revenge, Grandall takes revenge on those who killed his father. Gradalls’ mother is also depicted as another primitive species in the shape as life began in the sea so what if; I’ll leave it at that. A great movie through and through that I very much enjoyed. Make up artists should be praised in this m movie as well. The Beowulf in this movie is not as legendary feeling in this movie though.
