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.

Im not a teenage girl so maybe I shouldn't be writing reviews about this film but as a movie this is indescribably bad on all fronts.
In every scene I kept thinking how the Monty Python 6 would have acted it out...some scenes came close to the BURNNNN HERRRR! John Cleese moment.So many scenes could have been ripped straight from Holy Grail in acting and delivery but without the skill of Terry Gilliam`s artistic brain giving scenery and shots depth and a believability .But its the age of appealing to the popcorn crowd who just pay to see images flashing before their eyes..no matter how tedious those images are.

In this 2011 dark retelling of the classic fairy tale, Valerie [Amanda Seyfried] is a teenager living in a secluded village in a forest plagued by a werewolf, She’s also to be married to the wealthy blacksmith’ son, Henry, but loves poor woodcutter Peter, who she plans to run away with, but the Wolf has broken its truce not to prey on the townspeople trapping the lovers in the village. But who is the werewolf, what does it want and will true love win?
This is a very atmospheric, dark and sinister retelling of the fairy tale. Containing stunning sets, breath-taking scenery, a convincing fantasy ‘otherworld’ landscape and a haunting Celtic Carnyx style musical back score. It’s a tale of unrequited love, love found, lust, anger and all mixed with lustful sins, witchfinders, witches and a killer werewolf.
The single disc loads to a 50 language selection, then goes to 3 trailers and a blu ray ad before going to main menu offering play, scene selection, deleted scenes and languages [basically English, French, Italian and the same subtitle options with the addition of Nederlands].
This is a great reworking, creating a believable set and convincing storyline but stay away if its a broody horror you want, it’s not a horror [hence 12 rating!] it’s simply a sinister love story set in a creepy wood with a killer [werewolf] prowling the area bumping off the characters. If you can handle that, then this is a fantastic film, but if you get ‘into’ the brooding atmosphere the 12 rating can appear a bit low for the sensitive.

Catherine Hardwike's film is much closer to the 1984 movie "Company of wolves" (based on Angela Carter short stories) than to the original Charles Perrault tale - and like the former, it is definitely NOT for children. I am also almost certain that Catherine Hardwike was at least a little inspired by the wonderful commercial for Chanel 5, made in 1999 and featuring Estella Warren as Red Riding Hood and the wolf as himself.

Both me and my wife we liked this movie very much. Ok, granted, this is not an immortal masterpiece, but we both spend a nice cinema moment and this movie has many qualities, which I will try to describe below. MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD.

First, we liked the cast. Amanda Seyfried is excellent as Valerie, a young girl who reached the time to be married and gets from her grandmother a red cape as wedding gift. The name Red Riding Hood is never used in the movie, everybody calls her just Valerie - but we of course know better... Amanda Seyfried wears this red cape with a great grace and the effect (especially for the male public) is quite pleasant. It is even more pronounced when the snow falls.

Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons give a good performance as two young village men, wild, bold and violent Peter and shy, peaceful and more sophisticated Henry, who both want to marry Valerie. Those two rivals and sworn enemies both have their good and bad points and with the time Valerie will have more and more trouble to choose between them.

Virginia Madsen plays Valerie's mother - her character, although secondary, is quite important for the plot so pay good attention to everything she says.

Lacking the comedy body count of Hansel and Gretel or the drama of Harry Potter, it looked like the cast were sleeping their way through the film. One to avoid unless you really have a couple of hours of your life to waste.

Was Gary Oldman blackmailed into being in this awful movie or was he hypnotized into thinking it was good? It was truly awful and I am very glad that it was on Prime and so I did not have to pay to rent it.
