I won't bore you with the story. If you ever went to school; you were exposed to this story even though a fair amount of literary license was taken
with the classic tale.
This sexed-up 3D version was shot in the "300" mode By Director Robert Zemetkis. This was a well crafted, seamlessly edited film.
The acting at times verged on Corny but maybe that is to be expected with all the sword play, ogres, dragons etc. Ray Winstone played Beowulf as a
superhero, but Beowulf was an old school type of hero anyway.
Ms. A. Jolie naked looked mighty fine, but I kept asking myself if she really looked that good or was she the product of film making art.
Usually 3D movies use 3D in place of good film making. Not in this case; this 3D was very cool and gave a dimension that at times was sheer beauty
along with sheer gross out with some of the dripping gore.
Spring the extra $s for the 3D version.
I really liked this film but my GF went to sleep about half way thru and didn't enjoy what she saw all that much.
Instead of stars, I give this film and a half dancing jesters.
