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

This is the rare blockbuster that offers its characters - and its audience - no shelter.

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

Sure, it's more sinister and gory (ridiculously so at times), but Del Toro's acting is a standout.

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.

The Wolfman attempts to recapture the old school feel of monster movies, but ends up coming across as a film that was patched together by a group of people with very different ideas of what they wanted from it.

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.

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