"Just awfeul. How could such famous actors take part in such a fiasco? The whole thing was a mish-mash of themes borrowed from other stories.. The language, story and acting were atrocious, with a couple of minor exceptions, viz. Jolie and one other whose name escaped me. But we can only thank the directors for the dreadful acting, as the stars have proved their abilities in many other ways. Cannot recommend it. Has set Beowulf-studies back by decades."
