As a remake 'The Wolfman' is as digitized as they get; offering what is supposed to be a dark insight into a land where the line between humanity and animosity is blurred and a savage werewolf brutally terrorizes Victorian Great Britain.

The Wolfman wasn't half as bad as I'd been lead to believe. In fact I thought it was quite good as remakes go. It has added a little more action, a little more gore but still retains the mystery and just the right amount of cheese. It's not perfect but I think quite knowingly so....

The remake of the classic horror tale of a werewolf curse does start out quite promising. Without wasting much time, the beast attacks and our protagonist returns home to investigate in his brother's gruesome death. The atmosphere and setting during those early scenes are working...

Please note that this review is in regards to the theatrical version. I plan on watching the director's cut, and, depending on how that goes, may readjust my review and rating.

A lot of CGI was used in this film, but it was appropriate for it's premise. I didn't feel that The Wolfman suffered from CGI Overload. But, The Wolfman is worth watching for it's great action sequences. However, there could have been more of them as I was waiting a while for the...

This is the best movie I have ever seen period. I loved every minute of it. It had fantastic acting, great special affects, a surprising plot twist. It was down right amazing, and even better than I thought it would be. Truly the pinacle of film making.
There are a few things ...

A drawn out film which was darkly filmed for maximum effect, yet felt too dark to see the movement at times. The metamorphesis was impressive, which you can't help but compare to American Werewolf in London, that having been a much talked about part of that film.
I did feel pre...

Joe Johnston's 'The Wolfman' was a film that worked on certain levels, for the wrong reasons. It served better as a gothic B-movie comedy with graphic (and hilarious) kills that reminded you of films such as 'Shaun of the Dead' or 'Hot Fuzz'. It is pretty laughable if you conside...

Seriously underrated. The effects are wonderful and the story is good. Sure, it's flawed, but it still is a great story telling movie.
