Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The city ends up being more interesting than the story or characters. Too bad we can barely see it."
‑ Michael Hardy, Boston Globe
"Moments of inspiration vie in vain with Goth cliché."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"The ads for Blood and Chocolate proudly declare that it's 'from the producers of Underworld', as if that's something to brag about."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"A bland, forgettable, and sub-par teen marketed horror cash-in that bored me to tears..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"A junior version of Underworld, minus the vampires, the action scenes, the cool FX, and the half-a-brain."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The elegant decay of Bucharest offers welcome visual relief from this otherwise tedious goth romance."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"A silly werewolf movie without any fangs."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"A far cry from such sneakily subversive werewolf-sex tales as The Company of Wolves or Ginger Snaps, this pallid little picture is all Lost Boys posturing by way of the sublimely ridiculous Covenant."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"A truly laughable movie, one that takes itself far too seriously without ever taking a moment to consider who its audience is -- or if it even has one."
‑ Scott Collura, IGN Movies
"click for review"
‑ Joseph Proimakis, Movies for the Masses
"Cheap special effects and banal dialogue rule."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Time Out New York
"There's no official rule which says that werewolf movies have to be boring, but it doesn't seem like anyone has tried particularly hard in a long, long time."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"Numbingly pedestrian."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
"...the film's positives are ultimately outweighed by its negatives."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This movie is another sign of a growing tendency in contemporary cinema towards conspicuous imitation. It seems that originality is no longer something to aspire to."
‑ Beverly Berning,
