Lambert's Beowulf

I'm growing so weary of writing about the Zemeckis Beowulf movie coming out in a week that I offer this brief interlude: a delightful tongue-in-cheek review of the older adaptation of Beowulf starring Christopher Lambert as everyone's favorite Geat.

By the way, Rotten Tomatoes still doesn't have any reviews of the film up, and it opens in a week (though it does have a couple of breathless reviews of the trailers). Generally, that's a bad sign, suggesting that the studio would prefer to keep critics away from the film for as long as possible. Still, I hold out hope. A fool's hope, perhaps, but hope nonetheless.

  1. The studio put an embargo on when reviews were allowed. My sense is that critics were very satisfied. Anne Thompson, of Variety, hinted that she only had one problem (the high heels).
