Not like the Beowulf movie with Chris Lambert or even the one that came out a couple years back.
Well I should say the movie does the original source material justice. In the film world you want to tell a good story, not a loyal story that sacrifices the quality of the overall film. However, the original Beowulf is one giant poem. A telling of alliterations, anglo-saxon mythology, christian symbolism, and classic cliches.
