Synopsis: Set against the coming of Christianity, this is the story of the last hero: in 507, a monstrous troll wreaks havoc in the mead hall of the Danish king, Hrothgar. He offers rewards for the death of Grendel, so Beowulf, a great and boastful Geat warrior, arrives with his thanes. Beowulf sets aside his armor and awaits the monster; a fierce battle ensues that leads to Beowolf's entering the watery lair of Grendel's mother, where a devil's bargain awaits. Beowulf returns to Herot, the castle, and becomes king. Jump ahead many years, and the sins of the father are visited upon Beowulf and his kingdom. The hero must face his weakness and be heroic once again. Is the age of demons over?

I come for peace

Give me peace my reyna


My beautiful reyna

The is called Mr. of the death

It will be accepted as the only God


My fans, my beautiful fans

One year ago they made me

their king

We take place tonight

and a new home

Majestic and beautiful

We will share the gold

and the treasure

And this it should be a place

of happiness and fornication

Until the end of the time

I name him...

A place full with virgins

And this to make honors

Where demons these

bastard's piece

here my king

They come here

The king is not a king

Not it is of the reyna type

The king of many battles

These stealing

these stealing?

As you dare to make me that

A sword!

Give me a sword!

Fight with me!

Fight with me!

It fights with me damned

That that was?


That you have made?

Man... destination

He/she has left many

good boy

Men... there is another fire

This but there of everything

And he/she burns until the death

Seal all the doors and windows

For the king's order... there won't be

any sin

He/she comes to see me

It looked for me until the place

but deep of the island

To the one that discovers it I will give him/her

half of my reyno and 20 men

The king knows that people

it would be sacrificed but

he/she knows, for their pleasure...

... he/she will live in big

Jesus Christ perhaps can

to cure our afflictions

The God won't make anything

we are us alone

What we need is a hero

Do they come it to come?

As soon as they see it they shoot

I don't see anything but that

the wind in the rain

We are lost

They will see my friends

They can take me until the moon

The storm this worse one my Lord

I was never so sure

These demons didn't leave us

If we win we will eat

Who are?

They are dressed as warriors

He/she speaks or I will cross you

We are navigating...

I am Beowulf

Son of...

We come to see your king

for friendship

He/she said that they have a mounstro here

They said that their lands

they are damned

Who says it?

I have seen the king in lands ejanas

-Not hy shame for those demons

-I Am Beowulf

And I came to kill to your mounstro

We have already had silly many heroes

that they come and they die for gold

If we die...

it will be for glory

not for gold

There are warriors out... thieves

-One of them calls you Beowulf and he/she said...


Where these?

You are welcome, son


How this your partner?


I thought that it would have been different

It was a very valiant man

I can ask for that

veniste to us?

I came to kill their mounstro

He/she said that he/she was a friend

of you

You should be a man very

brave to come

Many have attempted it

but in the morning

Not there is anything but that

bleed that to clean of the floor

And in the things...

and in the walls

I come of...

... anything


But I will kill their mounstro

He will kill our mounstro

do laud scucharon?

Grendel will die


-The mounstro calls herself Grendel

Then I will kill their Grendel

Me Beowulf, I will cure those

wounded of their peace

I will cross the skulls of

their suffering

And never but there will be bad

A hero! Wise that would need

a hero

You will go to their cave and you will kill

to the mounstro?

I have 14 people with me

We come from the distant sea

And it is a difficult moment

Powerful Hrothgar

Liberate them to all and

give them their food

And the beast and their legendary myths

that myth has been sealed

for their own hand

Many have called

to the devil Grendel

Open the warehouse and let us drink

Not cause but problems

Allow me to assist this
