Just so you know, this is a review of the Director’s Cut. I try to review director’s cuts whenever possible.
I read Beowulf during Mythology class in college, but I don’t remember enough about it to know whether they did it justice here or not. When it comes to the score for this section, benefit of the doubt it is!
This is the type of role John Malkovich is best at. Beowulf was incredibly bland, though.
Either make your movie animated or make it live action. Don’t mix the two. It’s creepy.
Plus, this entire film went back and forth from looking real to looking like a Playstation 2 cutscene.
This probably got a little higher score because it was the Director’s Cut. I’d be willing to sit through it again…maybe.
