Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Horror - This is a violent, bloody remake of the classic horror film. Fans of stars Benicio Del Toro and Anthony Hopkins should be pleased though Emily Blunt has little to do. The film is much too violent and intense for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average Such familiarity did not result in a better product and the well-publicized re-shoots didn't save the movie from the graveyard of mediocrity into which its unintentional campiness and underwhelming special effects have consigned it.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average Gothic horror stories seem more digestible when set in once-great British country houses and peopled with gloomy introverts, especially when the countryside involves foggy moors and a craggy waterfall.

USA Today Full Review
Average What emerges is a banal horror film and a tepid action-adventure. What was the purpose in dusting off a Gothic classic, only to mount such a mediocre adaptation?

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 67 moviegoers:
TEENS:The teens, both male and female, enjoyed "The Wolfman" very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Very mixed reviews from both the males and females. About half enjoyed it very much. Unfortunately, most of the rest were somewhat to very disappointed. I would recommend a lower priced matinee if you aren't sure about this movie.
ADULTS:These are very weak reviews. Notice that there are virtually no reviews above "Very Good." This is highly unusual and indicates that no one thought this was a great movie.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Lawrence Talbot's (Benicio Del Toro) 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 (Emily Blunt), 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 (Hugo Weaving) 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.
