Well for one Grendels mother was not an attractive woman, she was a monster like Grendel. Beowulf never slept with Grendels mother, and the dragon he fights in the end of the movie is not his son its a random dragon that he fights after returning home to Geatland to be crowned king.

What are the differences between Beowulf the movie and Beowulf the book What are the similarities?

AnswerI read the epic poem and saw the movie. The movie stays pretty close to the movie except for two main points. Warning, these are spoilers.In the book Beowulf goes back to (the land of the Geat's) Geatland to become king of his uncles kingdom. In the movie he stays in (the land of the Danes) Denmark and becomes king of Hrothgar's kingdom. In the poem Beowulf kills Grendel's mom. In the movie they make love and have a human beast like creature son (a dragon as a son). Although, in the film Beowulf returns and says he kills her so I guess one could argue it stays in line with the poem that way. In the book she could be still alive and they do the same thing but it doesn't say so we will never know. Also the in the poem there is a larger social backdrop of this type of society that wants peace and stability but that is at odds with a heroic culture of honor and revenge. In the movie they only touch on that very briefly when Beowulf comments on that the age of heroes is giving way to Christianity.
