Consensus: Suitably grand and special effects-laden, The Wolfman suffers from a suspense-deficient script and a surprising lack of genuine chills.

Time Out

With its mist-shrouded sets, gruesome slaughter and copious CGI, this is a surprisingly respectful updating of the 1941 Universal original.

Globe and Mail

An ill-considered, utterly unnecessary remake.

Who would have thought that only six weeks into 2010 we would have a contender for worst film of the year?

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.

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.

Houston Chronicle

Actors fulminate and masticate, spit, scowl and sob; what a gas it is to watch them overact with joy and conviction.

Benicio Del Toro pulls off a nifty trick in The Wolfman: He makes turning into a werewolf look as dull as doing your taxes.

The movie keeps the traditional look of the Wolfman and uses a mixture of practical effects and digital wizardry.
