Beowulf: Return to the Shieldlands (Esquire) Rated NR

Beowulf returns to his homeland to pay respect to the King, but the past is still there to haunt him. Starring Kieran Bew, Joanne Whalley, and Ed Speleers.

This is a show that I might have enjoyed more if I were at all interested in the story of Beowulf. The cinematography of the show is brilliant; it brings us into the world of Beowulf, and the costumes are divine. The story is what lacks the most with this show. There are a lot of subplots, which makes it hard to follow – especially if you don’t really know the story of Beowulf. I had to look it up to make sure I knew what was happening. There are too many characters that are in play, and they’re killed before you really know who they are. The show uses so many special effects that, at times, it takes you away from the world rather than bringing you into it. The show just has too much going, and there’s not enough there to pull you in. This show is not worth a watch.
