5.0 out of 5 stars Ignore IMDB this time, 14 Jun. 2011
This review is from: Red Riding Hood [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
To read the review currently featured under this title on IMDB you would think this was a terrible film and indeed it only attracts a rating of 4.9/10. Well I gave it 9/10 because I thoroughly enjoyed it. It will never get an oscar but its a very enjoyable fantasy for young adults. I have read criticism about how the poor people of this time wouldn't have been able to afford glass for their windows, for goodness sake, its a fantasy! My wife who hardly notices these things commented on how wonderful the set was. Amanda Seyfried is as gorgeous as ever as Valerie/Red Riding Hood and the whole cast give a pretty good performance and no I didn't guess who the werewolf was before the reveal. All the clues point to an obvious suspect but the plot is darker and more twisted than that. I'm sure the whole thing is aimed at fans of Twilight but I'm not one of those and I loved it. I watched it on dvd and will be buying it on blu ray.

This is the exact reason I don't take any notice of IMDB or other reviews/ratings. If the film interests me, which this did, then I will watch it, and either enjoy it or dislike it. My choice. My review.

I concur though, this film is decent enough, twilightesque for sure, but a decent enough story to keep you entangled, and the cinematography, well, I though that was stunning, and will look even better in bluray glory!
