I suppose I should amdit my bias up front: I have low hopes for this movie for three reasons:
1. It appears to have next to nothing to do with Beowulf, not that Beowulf would make a particularly good movie anyway.
2. If Beowulf is to be animated, it ought to be hand-drawn. I dislike CGI and hyperrealistic CGI is even worse.
3. Angelina Jolie. Somebody apparently thinks she's sexy, but somebody isn't me. That excessively sultry voice she's always doing is the vocal equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard.
