J. O.'s rating of the film Beowulf

While some action sequences offer lovely reminders of what can be achieved through digital filmmaking... everything else is bloated, and quite frankly a little dull. Why is trying to replicate the exact look of the voice actors now a "style". That's so boring! This is animation - where is the art, the imagination? All I saw was a painfully satirical adaptation of an epic, boobs, high-heeled feet, and a cartoon troll.
