Beowulf returns to his homeland of Herot in the Shieldlands to pay his respects to deceased king Hrothgar William Hurt.
But past jealousies mean Beowulf gets a frosty welcome, especially from Hrothgar's wife, Rheda Joanne Whalley , and son, Slean Ed Speelers.
Written by Anon. I hoped for so much something as great as 'Vikings,' or 'The Last Kingdom,'but it felt like an episode of Doctor Who i. Then after a lot of irritated huffing and puffing on my part, I realised it has been made for a young audience who would get the most from this ambitious reworking and I expect these it would delight.
I can't rate this properly as it wasn't made for me, but if I look back to my earlier tastes in life, am sure I'd have revelled in this show.
The time slot should have given me a clue that it wasn't intended for me and all the gripes I had are answered by it being reworked for it's target audience which doesn't include me.
From childhood to 24 I expect I'd have loved this version of Beowulf. I hope enough of it's target audience find it.

Yet the poem is so infused with a Christian spirit that it lacks the grim fatality of many of the Eddaic lays or the sagas of Icelandic literature.
Beowulf himself seems more altruistic than other Germanic heroes or the ancient Greek heroes of the Iliad. It is significant that his three battles are not against men, which would entail the retaliation of the blood feud , but against evil monsters, enemies of the whole community and of civilization itself.
Many critics have seen the poem as a Christian allegory , with Beowulf the champion of goodness and light against the forces of evil and darkness.
That is not to say that Beowulf is an optimistic poem. The English critic J. Tolkien suggests that its total effect is more like a long, lyrical elegy than an epic.
Even the earlier, happier section in Denmark is filled with ominous allusions that were well understood by contemporary audiences. Beowulf has often been translated into modern English; renderings by Seamus Heaney and Tolkien completed ; published became best sellers.

Hrothgar's adviser, Unferth, offers Beowulf his sword Hrunting to slay Grendel's mother. Beowulf and Wiglaf travel to the demon's cave to slay her.
Beowulf enters the cave alone and encounters the demon, who takes the form of a beautiful woman. He tries to kill her with the sword but fails due to her magic; instead, she seduces him with promises to make him king in exchange for the drinking horn and a son to replace Grendel.
Afterwards, Beowulf returns to Heorot with Grendel's head and announces he has killed his mother the demon. He recounts embellished stories of a fight, claiming he left the sword impaled in the body of Grendel's mother and lost the golden drinking horn in the battle.
Hrothgar speaks to Beowulf privately, and asks if he truly killed Grendel's mother. Despite Beowulf's boasting and calling Grendel's mother a 'hag', Hrothgar is not fooled.
He too had been seduced by the demon, and Grendel was the result of their tryst. Claiming he is free of the curse of Grendel's mother, which he declares is now Beowulf's to bear, Hrothgar crowns Beowulf king upon his death.
He then commits suicide by jumping from the castle parapet onto the beach below. The water demon appears as a gold light in the surf, and drags Hrothgar's corpse into the sea as the crowd kneels to King Beowulf.
Fifty years later, the elderly Beowulf is the estranged husband of Wealtheow, who has converted to Christianity. Beowulf has a mistress, Ursula, but his tryst with Grendel's mother has left him sterile to both his wife and mistress.
On the anniversary of Beowulf's victory against Grendel, Unferth returns the golden drinking horn, which his slave had found on the moors. That night, a nearby village is destroyed by a dragon , which then transforms into a golden figure, who orders Unferth to give a message to King Beowulf, the dragon's father: The sins of the father have returned to him referencing the Faustian bargain cycle, which Wealtheow knows about.
Beowulf and Wiglaf go to the cave once again, and Beowulf enters alone. When Grendel's mother appears, Beowulf throws her the golden horn, but she refuses to stop the attacks.
The dragon attacks Beowulf's castle, threatening Wealtheow and Ursula. Despite his age, Beowulf goes to great lengths to stop the dragon, slicing off his own arm in the process.
Eventually, he kills the dragon by ripping its heart out, and he and the creature tumble to the rocky beach below the castle. The dragon transforms into a golden humanoid form, before being washed out to sea.
As Wiglaf approaches him, Beowulf tries to tell the truth about his affair with Grendel's mother and acknowledge his son, but Wiglaf insists on keeping his legacy intact.
Beowulf then dies. As the new king, Wiglaf gives Beowulf a Norse funeral. Wiglaf finds the golden horn in the sand and sees Grendel's mother appear in the sunset.
She gives Beowulf a final kiss before his burning ship sinks into the sea. Grendel's mother slowly rises to the water's surface and seductively beckons Wiglaf towards her.
He wades into the sea, sorrowful and tempted, while holding the golden drinking horn. The film ends with Wiglaf paused halfway in the surf, leaving the audience unsure if he will make the same mistake as the kings before him.
Author Neil Gaiman and screenwriter Roger Avary wrote a screen adaptation of Beowulf in May they had met while working on a film adaptation of Gaiman's The Sandman in before Warner Bros.
In January , producer Steve Bing , at the behest of Zemeckis who was wanting to direct the film himself, revived the production by convincing Avary that Zemeckis' vision, supported by the strength of digitally enhanced live-action , was worth relinquishing the directorial reins.
Because of the expanded budget, Zemeckis told the screenwriters to rewrite their script, because "there is nothing that you could write that would cost me more than a million dollars per minute to film.
Go wild! Zemeckis drew inspiration for the visual effects of Beowulf from experience with The Polar Express , which used motion capture technology to create three-dimensional images of characters.
Animation supervisor Kenn MacDonald explained that Zemeckis used motion capture because "Even though it feels like live action, there were a lot of shots where Bob cut loose.
Amazing shots. Impossible with live-action actors. This method of filmmaking gives him freedom and complete control. He doesn't have to worry about lighting.
The actors don't have to hit marks. They don't have to know where the camera is. It's pure performance.
Actors on set wore seventy eight body markers. The cameras recorded real-time footage of the performances, shots which Zemeckis reviewed.
The director then used a virtual camera to choose camera angles from the footage which was edited together. Two teams of animators worked on the film, with one group working on replicating the facial performances, the other working on body movement.
The animators said they worked very closely on replicating the human characters, but the character of Grendel had to be almost reworked, because he is a monster, not human.
Over graphic designers were chosen for the project, the largest team ever assembled for a Sony Pictures Imageworks -produced movie as of This article is about the epic poem.

It deals with events of the early 6th century and is believed to have been composed between and Beowulf is the longest epic poem in Old English, the language spoken in Anglo-Saxon England before the Norman Conquest. The present work is a modest effort to reproduce approximately, in modern measures, the venerable epic, Beowulf. Approximately, I repeat; for a very close reproduction of Anglo-Saxon verse would, to a large extent, be prose to a modern ear. The Heyne-Socin text and glossary have been closely. Beowulf is an Old English epic poem written anonymously around AD. Set against the coming of Christianity, this is the story of the last hero: in , a monstrous troll wreaks havoc in the mead hall of Danish King Hrothgar (Sir Anthony Hopkins). He offers rewards for the death of Grendel (Crispin Glover), so Beowulf (Ray Winstone), a great and boastful Geat warrior, arrives with his thanes.
