The WolfmanFebruary 12, 2010
“Blood and gore and a familiar tale of man who turns into wolf under a full moon!“
The film is a remake of the 1941 classic of the same name. Its the more realistic version of the werewolf also known as Taylor Lautner or “Jacob” from the Twillight series. One of the better scenes in the film is the transformation from man to beast. Great CGI! The cinematography was also noteworthy. Despite the start studded cast of Hopkins, Blunt and Del Toro, the film itself brought nothing new to the werewolf genre. The 1941 classic was regurgitated with CGI and cinematography. Its 2010 and the viewer is a lot smarter than 1941 and with the vampire/werewolf genre being so popular, the story is familiar and expected. Although a final scene suggests a remake, unless they bring something new and less obvious to the film, i wouldn’t recommend it.
