Like all adaptations, things need to be changed some to transition the tale from paper to film, but as compared to a lot of adaptations (I'm looking at you Bourne films) it doesn't completely change the story, but instead takes the story and makes it for film.
The characters in Beowulf move so subtly, and in such human ways, that moviegoers may be forgiven for occasionally forgetting that they're not watching human actors.
