From the library, not Netflix, and I did not know what to expect. I vaguely remember when it came out, but don't recall what the buzz was, whether good, bad or indifferent, and I was surprised to discover that it is computer animated. Because of that, at times I felt like I was watching Shrek. There's a lot of big names in this movie which usually spells disaster if you ask me. Too many fat egos, but I guess since its animated they could all record their parts at different times and not have to cross swords with each other.

Anywho, its entertaining, thats for sure. Not bad for wasting time between 11 pm and 1 am on a Saturday night. I don't understand why Beowulf fought Grendel naked (easy ladies you only see his animated butt). I mean, if its me, I want protection. That's why cups were invented. Baseball and hockey players never used to wear helmets, but I bet they've always had cups. Literally. They probably used tin mugs. Or better yet. Pewter steins.
6.5 out of 10 (Pretty good)
