Oy. A white-haired Christopher Lambert gives us his half-blind myopic stare and a grunty voice while his gymastically-inclined stunt double goes flipping all over the place. This version of Beowulf is more Mad Max than anything else except there are no vehicles. The weapons seem to be cobbled together of mostly lawn implements and chainsaws, and there is a credit in the “thanks” to someone’s House of Bondage — I’m assuming for the costumes, in particular for Hrothgar’s daughter Kyra, whose wardrobe utilizes lots of sheer merry widows. In this version, Grendel is the son of Hrothgar, Hrothgar’s wife commited suicide over the Hrothgar’s adultery, and Beowulf is the son of Ba’al. But let me tell you the real reason this movie was made:
And there you go.
