(kr) wrote: a haunting film, not only due to the subject matter, but also to the fact that both of the lead actors, Anita Mui & Leslie Cheung,passed away in the same year. the movie moves back and forth from the 1930's to the present day of the 1980's. Obviously, the movie works better when Anita and Leslie are together, and although the scenes in the present day work fairly well, a little too much focus is placed on the relationship of Alex Man/Emily Chu as sort of a modern day Anita and Leslie, and unfortunately Leslie Cheung largely fades from the picture.overall though, it's a good experience with several nice little touches including a cameo by Kara Hui! ultimately, it's a must-see for fans of Hong Kong cinema and Anita Mui and Leslie Cheung, if for nothing else than we'll never be able to see them on screen together again. recommended.

(us) wrote: Does this film want to be the new 300? You'd think so, judging by the amount of times Ray Winstone bellows "I..Am..Beowulf!" into everyone's face, secretly hoping we'll all adopt it as this season's catchphrase.No, thankfully Beowulf is much better than the crock of shit that is 300, although that really isn't saying much. For a start, the action is not confined to rocky paths; the conflict not restricted to mass nipple slashing. We get vast landscapes of earth and water, battles with sea monsters and land dragons, all much more visually impressive than 300.Yes, it all looks very nice, but about five minutes into the movie I sensed that this was made for a 3D experience and little else. I saw this on an ordinary Vue screen, but I felt as if I wasn't getting the full picture. My eyes were being raped, with all sorts of faces and objects being thrown towards me every 7 seconds. This film was made for 3D viewing, period. See it that way and don't make the same mistake as me.Unlike 300, Beowulf doesn't have totally uninteresting characters at its centre. Granted, I could care less about the romantic subplot between Beowulf and the Queen, but the tale benefited from having a flawed hero at its centre. He was big, strong, and fought in the nude, but damn, did he make some dickhead decisions, and boy, did they bite him in the ass.I don't want to give this film more analysis than its worth because it's plainly obvious that the sole purpose was to create a wankathon of eye-assaulting 3D visuals that never let up at any point. Angelina Jolie is naked, awesome, although the seediness doesn't stop there. Thinking the target audience was young children, imagine my surprise reaction to the opening ten minutes of debauchery, cussing, alcoholism and talk of dicking "virgins" Nice.Overall, if you're really hard pressed to see this, I'd tell you to go 3D or nothing. Even then, there's much better films out at the moment and with all the visual finesse this picture exhumes, it still fails to stand out.
(gb) wrote: It's fascinating, annoying, terrible, and cheesy all wrapped up into one incoherent mess. The first thing you notice is the off soundtrack that is basically all ADR. It's so off-putting at first that you want to shut the movie off right away. Once your brain gets used to it, you can finally try to enjoy the movie, but nothing makes any sense. There are four hikers going through the woods (so alone they are not) and that's about the most plot we get. There are many kills, but it's random and makes no sense. For example, there's a woman painting with a child in the woods and she is killed. Then there's a couple in a van at night that get killed (one of the more memorable parts of the movie btw). Then a couple taking photographs and hiking are killed. Then a guy in a wheelchair is killed (why he is out there alone in the woods I don't even know). All these random murders are strong together with no connection at all to the plot. What I'm getting at is the director likely went out into the woods with all these people on random days to shoot scenes that he would later try to fit into his movie. That's the only reason I can think for all these nonsensical kills. There's no way these were all in the script. It was done for two reasons: Lengthen the running time and up the body count. Otherwise there is really no plot, story, or characters to invest in. You only would watch this movie for the absurdity of it all.On another note, Vinegar Syndrome has once again done a commendable job. This isn't the best blu-ray I've seen from them, but it's still very good considering the source they had. The colors look amazing and there's only so much you can do with the audio (which I imagine could have been far worse). There is still lots of grain and plenty of scratches, but it adds character to this otherwise trashy movie.

(au) wrote: This would be a fairly routine British gangster movie were it not for some great performances (Ray Winston, Amanda Redman and especially Ben Kingsley). Kingsley's character is a truly villainous, intimidating and foul-mouthed thug who can ware down Winston by spitting vitriol at him until he agrees to do a job.
