it was Motion capture, so people didn't actually animate much. they rigged it though.


the movie itself wasn't too good though, IMO. too fantasy-ish and loud.

Actually thats half right,
i know Grendel was almost 100% hand animated and a lot of the animation was motion captured first then edited to better match the scene. I mean, it would have been very hard to motion capture most of the fight scenes and the dragon fight.
