Overview

Universal Studios resurrects the classic lycanthrope with this tale of a man who experiences an unsettling transformation after he returns to his ancestral home in Victorian-era Great Britain and gets attacked by a rampaging werewolf. When Ben Talbot Simon Merrells vanishes into thin air, his brother Lawrence Benicio Del Toro returns to his family estate to investigate. Upon reuniting with his estranged father, Sir John Talbot Anthony Hopkins, however, he discovers a destiny far darker than his blackest nightmares. Ben is dead; the victim of a savage attack by a beast that keeps the superstitious locals cowering in fear every time the moon shines bright in the sky. Shortly after discovering his brother's true fate, Lawrence swears to Ben's wife, Gwen Emily Blunt, that he will bring her late husband's killer to justice. As a young boy, the untimely death of his mother caused Lawrence to grow up before his time. Though Lawrence had previously attempted to bury his pain in the past by leaving the quiet Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor behind, he discovers that you can't outrun fate when he's attacked by the very same nocturnal beast that claimed his brother. Not even recently arrived Scotland Yard inspector Aberline Hugo Weaving can dream up a rational explanation for the gruesome spell cast over Blackmoor, yet rumors of an ancient curse persist. According to legend, the afflicted will experience a horrific transformation by the light of the full moon. Now, the woman Talbot loves is in mortal danger, and in order to protect her he must venture into the moonlit woods and destroy the beast before it destroys her. But this isn't a typical hunt, because before the beast can be slain, a simple man will uncover a primal side of himself that he never knew existed. Screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker pens a film directed by Joe Johnston and featuring creature effects by special-effects makeup legend Rick Baker.

    I love the myth of the Werewolf, & because of that, I'm very picky as to what werewolf films I'll watch &/or own in my collection. Some werewolf films that are considered classics, I consider film fodder. This, however, was amazing! The 2nd best werewolf film that I've ever seen (the 1st being the original The WolfMan w/ Lon Chaney Jr.). This is a true revisioning of the original-fitting that Universal produced it! The acting? Superb. The plot? Gripping. The makeup by the great Rick Baker? I have no words, see for yourself...
    W/out giving up any spoilers, I loved the 'twist' on the Sir John (Hopkins) character. When all is considered; plot, cast, production, FX, score (by the great Danny Elfman), screenplay, & direction this boosts into the atmosphere of Cinimatic Genius!

    About the Wolfman

    Kudos to BN for shipping the DVD quickly. I ordered it, they shipped it, I received it 1,2,3. Excellent!

    But the movie itself? The focus was all about the Wolfman himself. The characters raced through the dialog as if in a hurry to get back to the graphics and the wolfman's ferocity.

    The movie could have focused equally well on character development instead of cutting so many vivid details out.

    If you want to know more about the characters, the setting, the motives, the sultry eroticism ... read the book. The movie omitted a lot of the sexuality that was presented in the book, skipping past it as if shy ... but blatant gore seemed to be wholly splayed onto the screen with indulgence. As for the movie, only Hugo Weaving seemed to be truly gripping in his role; he carried his dialog in a tone that was measured and precise; his poignant stare backed up his words.

    It is a movie that involves gore. I'll say that much. You'd better have a strong stomach for visuals of people gutted out ~ which I do and I give a three out of five based on graphics, Hugo's resolute presence, and Emily's passionate presentation in the final climactic cliff hanger.
