Beowulf

Posted on:November 19 2007


I watched the movie Beowulf last weekend and I liked it. It is completely rendered in 3D as known from Final Fantasy - the movie, but with some differences: They made it using a technique they call 'digitally enhanced live action' which IMO just is marketing slang for motion capturing and remodelling the faces of real actors into the 3D scenes: In case of Beowulf they used for example Anthony Hopkins, John Malkovich and Angelina Jolie. For me, this was not that important because I don't really care about famous actors, but it was interesting to see their faces in there.

The movie itself was very nice because the story is thrilling and interesting - where I live nobody really knows anything about this poem - and it has a very nice the combination of good dialogs, nice action and great tracking shots. In addition my female company liked the movie as well for the same reasons - which is a big bonus because it's not that usual girls like movies like that. I've heard there is also a 3-D projected version of the Beowulf movie available which can be watched with red-green glasses, but I saw the simple 2D-screen version only. Nevertheless, beowulf is recommendable, IMO.

I saw it in IMAX 3D, used two polarized projectors instead of red-blue lenses (much better way of doing 3D) and it was really nice :)

(IMAX) Digital 3D Version: Polarized glasses, 2 simultaneous pictures, full color. quite an experience :).
The technology is not [yet] ready, maybe in 5 years. I still got the nagging feeling of Beowulf being Shrek on steroids. The dragon is fantastic, the horses are dismal, Grendel is a bit over the top monstrous.
