Movie Review Wolfman – Past and Present

I’m about to give away my age here, but I saw the old version of the Wolfman when I was a kid. I didn’t really care for it then. I liked a little more gore as a teen and let me tell ya…the modern day Wolfman delivered the gore.

One of the things I liked about the movie was the setting. It was dark, grainy and gave the feeling of doom and danger – loved it! Now I must complain about special effects. Don’t get me wrong overall they were good, but – yep there is a but…why didn’t they make the Wolfman look more fierce. They had all these great special effects of him changing, then he changes and it’s like – blah…a wimpy looking werewolf.

The storyline was okay – kinda like the Bram Stoker’s Dracula…dramatic yet entertaining but kinda – umm – boring.

Now I give this a 2.75 out of 5 stars because I think the story could have been less predictable, and I was extremely disappointed in the end result of the wolfman’s werewolf looks.

If you want a comparison to the old movie, it was similar. Yet, much better because there was a good amount of gore.



Damn, I was hoping to see this soon. But not sure now...I'm not really a fan of movie's that take place in that time period. Eh I'll just wait till it gets on Netflix :P Thanks for the lovely review!

Thanks for the review! I wasn't sure how this would be. From the previews I was kind of iffy on seeing it or not. I guess if I need some gore I might go see it, but otherwise I'll probably wait until its out on video.
