Movie Trivia/Goofs

  • Model Rachel Bernstein (uncredited) was the body double for Angelina Jolie in the film's nude scenes.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): Grendel and his mother say several phrases in Old English. Even though it is the language of the written version of the Beowulf poem, it is not the language spoken in the time and area where the action takes place (East Old Norse is more probable). There is also no justification for switching from Modern to Old English and back in the dialog.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): In the end when Wiglaf is going into the water, the waves break in a pattern that is only present in very shallow water (1-10 cm), but he is in to his waist.
  • The name "Beowulf" is a kenning of the Anglo-Saxon words for "Bear." A kenning is a phrase that is substituted for the usual name of a person or thing. It is typically comprised of two terms, with the first word added to the second in a way that conveys a meaning neither word has alone. Therefore "Beowulf" comes from "Bee-Wolf," meaning "Bear."
