I personally thought Beowulf was rubbish. They took every possible opportunity to say the name "Beowulf" and every opportunity to show limp bodies being flung through the air. I like the story behind it, but I think there's difficulty in translating a poem from a story-telling society of the past into a modern film context.

a big part of Beowulf was in the poetic aspect of it- symbolism, form, meter that sort of thing that wouldn't really translate onto the screen. and without that sorta stuff- the story itself is really kinda short so they'd need a lot of filler.

Imagine a Beowulf cluster of ... oh wait.

I saw a preview of Beowulf and thought, "How. Hypermasculinity and CGI don't mix."
But even though 300 is by the same definition I liked it better.

Honestly, Beowulf is the WORST movie I've seen.
It's OKAY in IMAX 3D.
300 is a lot better imo

It really depends on what you like. Like take myself for example, Im wiccan so seeing all those other wiccans battling mythalogical monsters almost made me cum right then and there.
