Beowulf & Grendel(2006)
A medieval adventure, based on the 1000 year old Anglo-Saxon poem Beowulf. It tells the tale of a Viking hero's battle against Grendel, a murderous troll who is terrorising the village of the Danish King Hrothgar. Beowulf's determination to aid his kin falters as it becomes clear to him that the King carries the responsibility for the Troll's bloody rages. This film reveals what happens when mercy, vengeance and loyalty collide, stripping away the hero-myth in a beer-soaked story.

Beowulf & Grendel
What a fantastically MAD film. Beautiful scenery, engaging, funny (sometimes unintentionally), and action-packed - we're still talking about it the next morning. Although it's being compared to Lord of the Rings in some places, including the bizarre number of fan sites, it's not really a sensible comparison. Unless you're comparing it LOTR on a low budget or possibly LOTR on the drug of your choice. Oh, and GO ICELAND!
