The feast lasted late unto the night unitll finally Grendel arrived. Beowulf fought Grendel unarmed, proving his strength to the Danes around him. Grendel struggled under Beowulf's strength just as Beowulf tore the monster's arm off. Grendel sank back into the depths of the swamp, missing an arm, as King Hrothgar and his mean cheer in victory. It was not long after Beowulf defeated Grendel, when his swamp-hag mother came from the depths of the swamp to Heorot seeking retaliation.

This incredible war story shows us that, even though they display great bravery and valour in battle, the only thing young men who fight in wars accomplish is an early death. The novel talks about many soldiers dying. So many of these soldiers are dead, that in the trenches they can smell the stench of rotting flesh, as the dead men often do not get buried. Those young men lying out in No Man’s Land, unburied, all went to war for the same reason, to prove that they were brave, not cowardly, and to fight for their country. All they end up doing though is becoming another casualty, another statistic, dying in a war that had no real reason.
After finding that his sword is not sharp enough, he discards it and begins struggling with Grendel’s mother. He then spies another, bigger, sword, and swiftly uses it to cut off her head. Being able to do this remarkable feat is astounding, and accurately portrays the courage embodied in Beowulf. The last battle was with the dragon, that was terrorizing the Dane’s Hall, after a slave stole a cup from it’s lair. Beowulf hears of this, and with the

If he didn’t receive his wish, he would take a innocent person into his cave of the mountain.

This introduction had nothing to do with the plotline other than the flying shark and if I could change anything about this movie and make it my way, I would completely erase the ship-scene; the terrible entrance forewarned me that this would be a long one and a half hours with the already terrible acting and animation. Moments after the business man was eaten by the flying shark, we were flown over one of my favorite cities that I have never been to, Los Angeles. Surfer and bar owner Fin was determined to rescue his family after the hurricane and shark attacks began to become a major catastrophe, so he leaves his destroyed bar and takes off in sight for Beverly Hills with his friends Baz and Nova. Long story short, everyone that was part of the storyline dies except for Fin, Nova, Claudia (Fin’s Daughter), April (Fin’s Ex-Wife), and Matt (Fin’s Son). The movie ends in a rather disturbing, yet cute, sort of way.
