A practical man returns to his homeland, is attacked by a creature of folklore, and infected with a horrific disease his disciplined mind tells him can not possibly exist.
Suitably grand and special effects-laden, The Wolfman suffers from a suspense-deficient script and a surprising lack of genuine chills.
When the beast finally bursts forth, the character becomes, for the most part, a digitally augmented blur -- there's no room for a performance underneath all the 0s and 1s.
Actors fulminate and masticate, spit, scowl and sob; what a gas it is to watch them overact with joy and conviction.
Who would have thought that only six weeks into 2010 we would have a contender for worst film of the year?
With its mist-shrouded sets, gruesome slaughter and copious CGI, this is a surprisingly respectful updating of the 1941 Universal original.
An ill-considered, utterly unnecessary remake.
There is a better movie in here, lost in the edit and screaming to get out, but unfortunately, this Wolfman is howling at a moon that's only half-full.
Benicio Del Toro stars in this lushly art-designed 19th-century period film, but his beefcake-gone-bad magnetism is not enough to justify sitting through a movie that's full of sound, fury and unintentional camp -- and is still bafflingly inert.
The Wolfman, hokey and uneven though it is, [has] the kind of authentic emotional hook that too many horror movies today don't have.
The movie keeps the traditional look of the Wolfman and uses a mixture of practical effects and digital wizardry.
