The warrior Beowulf must fight and defeat the monster Grendel who is terrorizing towns, and later, Grendel's mother, who begins killing out of revenge. (from imdb) If you were a fan of 300, you'd really like this. Critics have compared the two movies. I've actually never seen 300, but I was really excited to see this because I remember reading the epic poem in college. I'd be lying if I said I was really familiar with the poem, but I do know the gist of it. The film was very exciting. I think it has something for everyone: swordfights, action, violence, love, relationships . . . . the young, hot Beowulf taking his shirt of . . . Angelina Jolie . . . .
