This was interesting to me, i am a fantasy addict. The trailer seemed very exciting.
But it turned out to be real longwinded and flashed from past to present. Confusing plot to handle, soemtimes Beowulf fights with the dragon, then he is a child, then a teenager. It does not do for people with little patience. If u prefer a beginning-to-end kind of plot, don't watch this. It would help if u read up from wiki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beowulf
Some people hated it that the dragon talked, just cut to the action already! I'm ok with this, i like philosophical thinking dragons, and they aren't the villains all the time! Sometimes they are good. PLus, you can see Jolie in a kind of nude form.
