The warrior Beowulf must fight and defeat the monster Grendel who is terrorizing Denmark, and later, Grendel's mother, who begins killing out of revenge.
According to Ray Winstone, he and his fellow cast spent several days filming in blue skintight suit, "showing up all your lumps and bumps in all the wrong places. Which can be hard when you're standing in front of Angelina Jolie, who looks stunning in hers."
I want mead! Give me some mead, my queen!
When Hrothgar stands with Beowulf and discusses where he got the horn, he makes it sound as if he killed Fafnir the dragon. According to the Viking sagas (Völsunga saga) it was Sigurd (Fafnesbane) who slew the dragon Fafnir, not Hrothgar from the Beowulf epic.
