When the moon is full the legend comes to life
This werewolf-themed horror film set in Victorian England centers on Lawrence Talbot, an American man who, upon a visit to London, gets bitten by a werewolf. Talbot had come to England to make amends with his estranged father, but after a moonlight transformation leaves him with a savage hunger for flesh, family harmony is the least of his worries.
"The Wolfman" was a staple of the creature features of the forties and fifties and will be fondly remembered for Lon Chaney Jnr's portrayal of the tortured werewolf back in 1941. A character that has been around since the early days of cinema he was due another run-out and when Joe Johnson signed on for a reboot a few years ago the expectations were high.
Joe Johnson is a former special effects man and you would think with that background that this would be something to rival the Rick Baker effects on "An American Werewolf In London". Baker was the man chosen again to create a monster and unfortunately he missed his mark for once. Maybe it's nostalgia for Landis's…
Joe Johnston is the real Dog Whisperer.
There's a good wolfie...
Beautiful, tame, lame waste of talent.
As an avid werewolf film fan, having made one myself, I cannot help but enjoy moments of this. Sure the film isn't great, but the gory carnage and the practical effects, which there are sadly too few compared to CG, are a lot of fun.
How did they mess up a Werewolf movie so badly when they had some great talent involved and at least a half decent budget. The biggest disappointment was the fact that 30 years a go they did a far better transformation scene, than they did in this film. Overall a very big disappointment and I would not recommend this to anyone.
A mess of a film.
Lack of actual horror. Focusing more on disposable gore shots. Rubbish attempts at dark humour.
Characters that you do not care about or are even interested in.
Ninja werewolf in a gypsy camp scene.
Another silly Anthony Hopkins performance.
A weak Benicio del Toro performance.
Mish mash of effects that range from poor to good.
Too much CGI, leading to a lack of atmoshpere or decent grounding for the film. (including exterior shots, werewolf and dodgy looking bear & deer)
I reallly wanted it to be good, I originally saw this at the cinema where I left bitterley dissapointed. Unfortunately it seemed lazy in parts, tainted, interfered with film making. Second watch just confirms my disdain. It is obviously hard to do a decent werewolf film, as so few have attained that status, but this one infuriates more as it had the budget and supposedly some talent behind it.
For a cast that includes Anthony Hopkins and Benicio Del Toro, I was surprised how badly wooden and bland the acting is from the whole cast. Coming from Joe Johnson, the director of The Rocketeer and Captain America:The First Avenger, I was surprised how poorly edited and shoddy the directing is. Written by the same guys behind Se7en and Road to Perdition,I was surprised by the lack of chills, suspense, scares, and interest. How could this have failed so badly?
No argument that there are entire scenes done so efficiently in CGI that I wasn't even made aware of them. Nevertheless, when the werewolf rampages through the forest, he does so with too much haste. He would be more authentically fearful if he moved like a creature of the mammoth heft that's visually apparent. The werewolf moves so spryly here, almost like a cat, he basically wears a sandwich board: I'm animated! But maybe I'm wrong. I am not familiar with the physiology of wolf men.
An attractive movie with a killer cast. Have to give props to them for committing to the wolfman premise to such an extent that the final twenty or so minutes is quite the campy fun, but the movie overall was pretty boring and predictable. I mean. It was my first, and hopefully only, time seeing this, and I literally announced what was going to happen accurately during the first ten minutes. (I can sometimes be a pain to watch movies with. Not always, but sometimes, and only when I think the movie is stupid.)
While Lawrence Talbot is in London pursuing his acting career he is informed by his brother's fiance, Gwen Conliffe, that something strange has happened. Lawrence is told that his brother has been missing for nearly a month and was last seen in their hometown of Blackmoor. Lawrence reluctantly decides to return to Blackmoor to find his brother with the help of his father, but when he arrives he discovers that his body has been found. No one know who or what murdered Lawrence's brothers, but he vows to Gwen that he will discover his murderer. Meanwhile, his father, John, seems to be displaced as if something else is on his mind. When Lawrence has an encounter with this fiendish creature…
Saturiski nekas jauns jau nav, bet forši uzbūvēta filmas atmosfēra dod ļoti daudz. Gotiskā atmosfēra ir filmas galvenā zvaigzne.
The Wolfman is a very bad remake of an old horror movie classic. The idea to remake it wasn't a bad one you could say because the old one is definitely dated now that it is over seventy years old, or you could think that it would be a bad idea to remake it considering that the old one was such a horror masterpiece of its time that it should be left alone. However I definitely feel like it was a bad idea to remake it in the way it was done. This film was hated by pretty much by all critics and audience members like myself, so I think it is safe to say it didn't do justice to…
Very disappointing. Dodgy makeup and a lazy plot. Even Del Toro doesn't fare well.
Lo siento, pero... ¡bodrio! No me asustó, ni me entretuvo, ni nada de nada. Efectos buenos, maquillaje no tanto, fotografía muy oscura (cliché clicheado), actuación no tan buena, personajes débiles. ¿Qué hace Anthony Hopkins allí?
Danny Elfman... Se repite mucho, su Soundtrack no aporta nada al ambiente ni a la historia.
One of the worst films made. Terrible character development.

Work in progress. Not all of the films are strictly horror, but I say close enough. (I'm sticking mainly with…
