OK retelling of the story, though somewhat cold. Several genuine "jump" moments. Lots of gore. I saw the "unrated" version, not the theatrical one. Don't expect this to be the same as the Lon Chaney Jr. version as far as who does what to whom.

"The Wolfman" by Yojimbo

An American actor returns to his ancestral home to investigate the death of his brother to be confronted by a murderous supernatural creature. Props to The Wolfman for avoiding the temptation to transpose the story to modern day America, but for all its gothic intentions, it's still just another CGI wankathon that is far more interested in superhero-style set pieces and gore than atmosphere and suspense. Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins are both superb actors but both weigh in with easily their worst performances in a "serious" film I've ever seen (during their final confrontation I couldn't help thinking of Teen Wolf) and the comic strip approach just doesn't work in the context of such a po-faced interpretation of the material. On the plus side, the transformation scenes were quite ...

Stylish yet cheesy remake!

The Wolfman brings back Universal's classic horror-icon back now more amped up that before. The A-list cast consisting of Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins and Hugo Weaving give a strong back bone to what is essentially a very entertaining movie. Stylistically the film achieves its own interesting atmosphere with the dark late 19th century look and the psychedelic mind effects. At times the more psychedelic moments do seem to cross the point of unintentional hilarity but the effort is still quite good.
Looking from the view-point of horror films The Wolfman is very weak on suspense. The movie resorts to making the audience jump with sudden, loud audio-bursts and with the unexpected appearance of people, animals etc. This is a very cheap method and I felt it crossed to the point of prepos...

Not original, but stunning

Can an unoriginal film ever be classified as a great film? That is the question posed with “The Wolfman”. It can definitely be a good film, but nothing that is worthy of the highest praise. Of course, there are always exceptions, but “The Wolfman” does not feel as though it is. However, it is by no means a bad film. Joe Johnston does a great job at making a well made film out of an idea that has been done over and over in the past 100 years of film. In this 2010 version of “The Wolfman” (there have been numerous films relating the werewolves and wolf men over the years, too many to list here), Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro) returns to his childhood town of Blackmoor in England to investigate the death of his brother. He is confronted with his father (Anthony Hopkins), who had a large ...
