Beowulf

Pride is the curse.


Beowulf
Based on a famous historical epic poem, this modern animated adventure takes place in 8th century Scandinavia. After a monster destroys their version of a drinking hall, the king seeks a hero to destroy the monster. A willing candidate soon arrives and deals with the monster, but then discovers that the monster has a very sexy and very deadly mother, who gives him a run for his money. Expect plenty of naked 'flesh' and violence.
