The Wolfman

Packed with an excellent cast, which included Anthony Hopkins, Benicio Del Toro, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving, you would expect The Wolfman (2010) to be a top-rated movie.

You might or might not expect a first-rate soundtrack, excellent cinematography and, given that it is a horror movie, plenty of violence and gore and the movie delivers on all of these counts.

When Lawrence Talbot returns to his family estate in England to solve the murder of his brother. Once there, of course, he has to deal not only with childhood demons but also his estranged father, his brother's fiance and a Scotland Yard detective and the curse that is the story of The Wolfman.

Some movie fans had high expectations of this film and were ultimately disappointed somewhat but I think that Monsters and Critics summed it up perfectly when they said, "it's certainly worth a watch for classic horror fans." I enjoyed it, thinking the story was interesting, the sets and the cast perfect. I recommend watching this movie (if you can tolerate the gore) just for the fun of it. Be aware that the violence and gore is considered extreme and this movie is, therefore, rated 18A.

"Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms, and the autumn moon is bright."

The Wolfman Reviewed by Other Viewers

I really enjoy reviews by non-professional people and often look to them to see what ordinary movie viewers think of a movie. In the case of 2010's The Wolfman, I found comments like the fact that this one has a dark and foreboding feel like that in the old monster movies and that you should, therefore, watch it with the lights out. People were impressed with the retelling of the classic film and some even felt that this movie is as good as or better than the original. One said that Anthony Hopkins was very convincing (I agree) but that you should not be taken in by his gentleman act because he is not a very nice guy...

The Wolfman (2010) is rated 18A.

      This is an excellent movie. In fact, I must be biased because Anthony Hopkins and Benicio Del Toro are two of my favorite actors.

      I'm not a fan of this genre but with Anthony Hopkins, it should be good.
