I finally saw Beowulf the other day. It’s an animated(ish), drinking, fighting, carousing, jumpy out and get you kind of a story. Imagine crossing Shrek with Aliens with The Three Muskateers and you would be in the right realm. It’s a good fun movie though the Aliens aspects mean it’s probably not safe for the kiddies- “intense sequences of violence including disturbing images, some sexual material and nudity ” just about covers it; yes you get to see Angelina Jolie with her gear off, or at least a digitally rendered version of her. It’s a much brighter production than the 1999 Beowulf though for my money Christopher Lambert was a better Beowulf. If you’ve got them then pack the kids of to the baby sitter and enjoy.
