Movie Review: The Wolfman (2010)

Lawrence Talbot’s childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother’s fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline has come to investigate.

As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed. Released February 12th, 2010

STARRING: Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving

MY REVIEW: I remember watching the previews and seeing a few scenes that looked kind of creepy so I was looking forward to watching it. It’s always fun to have a few jumpy moments in a movie. The acting was very good, I’ve missed watching Anthony Hopkins in movies, it’s been so long since he’s done a movie, the last was back in 2007 in Beowulf. He was exciting to watch and all the actors that played in the movie made it worth watching. The movie could have ended up being really cheesy or it could have been really scary. I kind of felt it was in the middle, it had scary moment and I got really into it a few times but then other times when they showed the wolfman close up it looked really fake. After watching a movie like Avatar and even New Moon, they had a lot better special effects and costumes for that. Overall I enjoyed watching it but I probably won’t buy it on DVD.

MY RATING: B
