I just finished the 2007 film Beowulf and I have to say I’m not impressed.  The motion capture really didn’t add anything to the film and really just kind of distracted me from the film.  The story was decent but it differed far to much from the original poem, the writers really should have just stuck to the original story and not tried to make it their own.  Some times you just have to say if it ain’t broke don’t fix it.  I can’t really say anything about the acting since it all could have been fixed by motion capture.  Basically if you want a good film based on the story of Beowulf just watch The 13th Warrior, it’s far superior.
