Beauty and the Beast, in the Norse Realm

Blood of Beasts is just another retelling of Beauty and the Beast, set among the Vikings. Every character is there, even the hated Gaston in the form of Brad Pitt look-alike Sven. The king's daughter, Freya is beauty, but she's a lot more, too. She's a `take charge chick', a warrior, and an interesting character. A lot of the other reviewers have recapped the plot, (some with spoilers, be careful when you read them) so instead of recapping their recaps, let me refute a few of the most recent points made in their reviews to explain why they gave it 1 star and I gave it 4.

The people who reviewed it and said it was an LOTR rip-off must not have been watching the same movie I was. Yes, the movie covers are similar, but the films are VERY different from start to finish.

As for it being boring, I don't think so. It isn't action from start to finish, but it does have lots of nice sword play. Even better when there isn't fighting there's delicious character development that makes the likeable characters great and the wretched characters so rude, cruel, and terrible you want to jump into your viewing screen and choke them! The bottom line is you become emotionally invested in this movie, and are sad to see it end.

Speaking of characters, another thing I like about this movie is Freya, (Beauty) isn't a Shrinking Violet. She can fight, she speaks her mind, and she plays a roll in her own destiny.

If you're looking for something that's high art, this might not be your film. If you're looking for a smart retelling of a classic fairy tale that will entertain you for an hour and a half, then check this movie out.

Recommended for B movie fans, and Fairy Tale lovers alike!
