Beowulf (2007)


Beowulf is an old English heroic Poem, author unknown. its creation dates between the 8-11th century. it is considered one of the treasures of England. the manuscript can be seen here: link.

i was caught off guard with the animation n went on one stupendous ride !! you've gotta sit in the cinema for this ride. the killing n slashing, the growling in pouncing, everything was just hair's breadth away. the plot n fights was tight, though simple n easily understood, it never once bored me. i was cheering all along, totally involved. this ancient tale addressed all the crossroads we encounter in life - love, betrayal, religion, honesty n loyalty. a warrior -Beowulf- fought and defeated the monster who terrorized the town. seeking for the monster's nest, he found the monster's mother. she seduced him into give him a new son. his "son" then came back to kill him when years passed ..
