3.0 out of 5 stars An old school creature-feature 28 May 2010
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
The Wolfman is a remake (with a lot of artistic license) of the 1941 film of the same name, updated and embellished with today's visual effects. Anthony Hopkins (Hannibal) plays a dark and austere Sir John Talbot, who has recently lost one of his sons. The other son, played by Benicio Del Toro (Che) returns home to Talbot Hall after a prodigal absence and sets about determining what has happened to his late brother. After fate has taken it's course, an inspector (Hugo Weaving - The Matrix) is sent from Scotland Yard to detect just what is happening in the sleepy town of Blackmoor due to a number of it's residents meeting with grisly demises.

What sets the Wolfman apart from other horror B-movies is just how bleak and gothic the milleu is; Talbot Hall (really Chatsworth House) is breathtaking. The approach across the moor really instills a sense of wonderment. The house is deliberately in a state of decrepitude & disrepair as Sir John has retreated from society and has few guests thesedays with only his Indian man-servant for company. The acting is fantastic and the first portion of the film has much of the air of a period drama that really develops the back-story and fills out the characters, even moreso in this version, the Extended Cut.

It is when we see the Wolfman that things start to unravel, the effects are good, but the end result is that the Wolfman looks like he did in the 1941 version; a guy in a gorilla suit.

By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
At times the extended version of 2010's The Wolfman is a case of a film failing for all the right reasons: an interesting attempt to mix a classical moviemaking aesthetic and old school production techniques with modern production values that often does a lot right but strangely never quite works as well as it should. Whether that's down to much-publicised production problems and extensive reshoots that saw the budget nearly double while the studio tinkered with it for the best part of a year-and-a-half and ensured that neither the 118-minute unrated cut on DVD or the 102-minute theatrical version that accompanies it on the Blu-ray is a true reflection of the director's original cut is a moot point, but it may simply be that director Joe Johnston took too classical an approach at times. The 1941 version isn't a great film by any means and certainly didn't have the resources this reworking had, but at least it kept things moving while this takes its cue from its house of buried secrets and underplays its hand a little too much at times. Johnston may have talent and an obvious love and respect for old Hollywood and classic filmmaking, but at times you can't help thinking that Anthony Hopkins' could have been talking about him when he says "You have a long way to go yet, my young pup."

The first hour of the extended version certainly drags its paws a bit with too many deliberately lifeless domestic scenes until it finally develops some real bite in the second half with a combination of vivid setpieces, be they beastly rampages, rooftop chases or a drug-fuelled nightmare asylum sequence that give great vintage montage straight out of the 40s, and not entirely unexpected plot twists that put a new spin on the troubled father-son relationship of the original film.

Format:Blu-ray
I watched this film with fairly low expectations. As a huge fan of werewolf films where the cursed guy undergoes a 'total' transformation to look far more like a wolf than a human - films like American Werewolf, The Howling and Dog Soldiers - I really dislike 'big bloke with a hairy face' werewolf films. I saw the original a long time ago and thought it was good, but was hugely disappointed when I saw a still of the werewolf from this remake in a mag and saw it suffered from 'bloke with a hairy face' syndrome. Imagine my surprise then when I found myself utterly enthralled twenty minutes in. Del Toro is a magnetic, fascinating leading man as always, drawing us deeply onto his side long before his transformation. As his cold and twisted estranged father, Anthony Hopkins is superb, giving off a detatched complacency and superiority that really elevates the game in their relationship. Emily Blunt, as Gwen, the bereaved fiancee of Del-Toro's brother is both note-perfect with her compassion and loss, and charming as a character who's far more convincing than the usual period-set female lead. And the period setting is gorgeous. Set in the late 1800's, it's the right time for mysticism and magic to still hold sway over the public's minds, and gypsies roam the lands, inflaming passions and resentment in the local Estate's villagers. When Del-Toro's Lawrence Talbot caves in to Gwen's request to help her locate her missing fiancee, he must return home to the family estate. After the discovery of his brother's horrendously mutliated corpse, his investigation brings him into contact with the local caravan of gypsies amidst an atmosphere of growing fear, and it's here that director Johnston pulls out all the stops. All my fears about an underwhelming werewolf went away with this scene. Read more ›
