Beowulf Movie Review

Friday, November 16th, 2007


You know what you’re doing this weekend. You’re going to see Beowulf. Aren’t you? The review is in and Beowulf is a “must see” for it’s groundbreaking CGI and breathtaking images. You don’t want to miss this one.

Robert Zemeckis’ new film Beowulf offers a powerful reminder of how far we’ve come, and perhaps have yet to go, in the ever-expanding world of special effects. It’s a majestic film, absolutely breathtaking to behold, and yet so many people will complain (and in fact already have) because they think the characters’ eyes are dead or the rhythms of their movement aren’t realistic enough. CGI was in its infancy 20 years ago, and we are now capable of rendering virtually anything on film; meanwhile audiences are so familiar with the process that they are steadily less impressed the more sophisticated these creatures, characters and landscapes become. How cynical have we become that we no longer appreciate works of art, instead search desperately for their flaws?

All of which is why Beowulf is not merely a very good film, but an important one. Not necessarily important in some specific cultural sense, or even perhaps within the timeline of cinema history; but Zemeckis has effectively combined the oldest storytelling form in the English language with the most up-to-date technology possible, in the process creating a singular work of art that reminds us timelessness and modernity are opposite sides of the exact same coin, at least where movies are concerned.

Beowulf Review

Friday, November 9th, 2007


Beowulf is both exciting and beautiful, but you must see it in 3D Imax.

If talk of Beowulf conjures up images of listless poetry lessons at school then think again – the new big screen version of the Anglo-Saxon epic is one of the most exciting and viscerally accomplished films of the year. Using performance-capture technology and crystal clear 3D imagery, director Robert Zemeckis fully immerses the viewer in a mythical world of warriors, monsters and demons, and in doing so makes his best film for more than a decade.

Which is no mean feat as the source material is challenging to say the least. The 3,000-line poem was written sometime in the sixth century and revolves about a Viking warrior who saves an ancient Danish kingdom from destruction at the hands of a terrible beast. The plot is pure Hollywood, but the convoluted and disparate nature of the original text couldn’t be further from modern, three-act screenplay structure. Writers Neil Gaiman and Roger Avary have decided to play fast and loose with the story however, filling in the poem’s many blanks to create a convincing and wholly satisfying adventure about the battle between good and evil and the nature of true heroism.

Malkovich Talks Beowulf

Tuesday, December 19th, 2006


If you want to know the scoop then you must read on:

In an exclusive interview with IGN, Eragon villain John Malkovich let slip a few morsels about his next fantasy flick, director Robert Zemeckis’ version of Beowulf.

Malkovich pointed out that he is not simply providing a voice for the motion-capture film. “No, it’s not that. You do everything but then it’s given a form of computer animation afterwards. But, no, we were all on set. We were all acting. It’s not film. There’s no film, there’s no lights. There are video references that the specialists and technicians utilize, but it’s actually all recorded on computer and all the data is fed to the technicians and then they will animate it.”

And while most animated characters are given traits and attributes shared by their real-life voice actors, Beowulf will be pushing the visual envelope.

“I will to some extent look and sound like myself,” notes Malkovich. “But Ray Winstone, who plays Beowulf, will be seven feet tall and will look sort of like an amalgam of portraits of Jesus and Ray. Tony Hopkins will weigh 600 pounds. It was really an amazing experience. I know they are still hard at work on it. We shot it last year … and there’s probably still a year to go.”
