Film adaptation of the classic poem of the same name follows a warrior's quest to vanquish a fearsome monster and his mother.

ABSTRACT
Loosely adapted from the epic Old English poem of the same name, Beowulf tells the tale of its titular protagonist, a confident European warrior arriving in the realm of Danish king Hrothgar in 507 to exterminate a terrible troll responsible for terrorizing his kingdom. Untold trouble awaits our man, who must face the troll's revenge-obsessed mother some years after defeating her spawn and taking the throne for himself, if he is to cement his status as a hero for the ages.
