Critic Reviews of "Beowulf & Grendel"Boston GlobeAugust 12, 2006
Trying to give us the true story behind the epic, the movie only reminds us of why humans write epics in the first place.L.A. WeeklyJuly 27, 2006
[You can] feel the filmmakers yearning to have Beowulf and Grendel go all Rambo on each other. Instead, they keep pulling back for more Old English angst, as if they're torn between commerce and winning the approval of their high school English teacher.Chicago Sun-TimesJuly 14, 2006
A semi-mythic period piece, Beowulf & Grendel offers sublime scenery that's breathtaking and bone-chilling.Chicago TribuneJuly 13, 2006
This gristle-intensive R-rated version of Beowulf travels a predictable revisionist route.Entertainment WeeklyJuly 12, 2006
A muscular, ardently naturalistic retelling of the ninth-century Anglo-Saxon saga.AV ClubJuly 12, 2006
Andrew Rai Berzins' script spruces up long stretches of Old English with unexpected bursts of cussing and gleeful vulgarity that feel as misguided as everything else in the film.Flick FilosopherOctober 14, 2006
The thrilling beauty of this reading of Beowulf is that it makes [the characters] feel modern... These people live in the real world, not in a fable and not in a history book.Filmcritic.comOctober 07, 2006

Gunnarsson has made a film that would make the real Beowulf and Grendel, if they ever really existed, quite proud.Movie HabitAugust 12, 2006
A fascinating trip to the dark ages and a good story well toldDVDTalk.comAugust 09, 2006
If you're game for a strange and beautiful-looking new version of the (very) old legend, you can safely give this one a rental.Boxoffice MagazineJuly 28, 2006
Beowulf's reality-driven approach suffers for lack of scope and questionable poetic license.
