Okay, so it’s rare to find good(or any) werewolf movie these days. The last one was Underworld prequel. The Wolfman may not be a very original rare gem, but it ends up as a pretty entertaining film.

Director: Joe Johnston.

Cast: Benecio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt.

What’s It About

Benecio Del Toro‘s character has got daddy issues, so he’s been away for a very long time. When he learns that his brother’s been missing in a mysterious way from the words of his brother’s fiance, he returns home to find out what happened. It’s suffice to say that he becomes a werewolf(omg was that a spoiler!), now he’s on a quest to get rid of the beast inside him while finding out a lot about his past, the hard way!

The Pros

The acting is spot-on! It’s not a surprise though, Anthony Hopkins always nails his roles and Benecio Del Toro was as he always is. Emily did a good job with her role, as I never saw her before in a movie. And although I had issues with the “role” he played but Hugo Weaving actually did good(I freaking hate The Matrix!). Overall, really good acting.

I was afraid of the fact that from the trailer, it made it seem like the plot was very “on the surface”. But I was wrong, there is more to the story & maybe I did saw the twist(in the middle of the movie’s runtime) coming but not the way I expected it to be. Nice job there! Also I predicted a cliche, I thought the climax would be quite “Hulk-ish”(you’ll know when) but it wasn’t which was a  good thing.

Adrenaline. I love vampire or werewolf rampages, hence Underworld & 30 Days Of Night being my favorite sub-genre film. There’s plenty of rampages to be had here. The kills looked really good and I thought they wouldn’t go for brutal gore, but they did! Good stuff.

The cinematography is beautiful. The look of the film was awesome.

The Cons

This was distracting. The reason for Hugo Weaving‘s character for being there was never really explained. He’s a Scotland Yard agent, most probably hunting down Del Toro’s character suspecting that he’s a lunatic. That’s all we get but I was hoping that he would come off more important to the plot. He takes one for the team though!

The film, is not really something special. It is very entertaining mind you, but is also quite forgettable by the judgment of it’s budget.


Basically, anyone with a love for the “werewolf” genre should at least check this out. Grade:- A.


People pick on me still because I liked the first Twilight movie, it was nothing great. A simple guilty pleasure but the things I liked most about the film was some members of the Cullen family. Peter Facinelli, Jackson Rathbone, Ashley Greene, Kellan Lutz and Nikki Reed to be more specific. But I wasn’t a fan of New Moon because it was annoyingly lovey-dovey. So here comes the trailer of the third film of the franchise and it looks great. It has David Slade(director of Eclipse who directed the amazing 30 Days Of Night) written all over it.
As for the trailer, it’s fantastic. Thanks to Slade now we can call this franchise a real horror!

  • The vampire rampages looks quite similar to 30 Days Of Night, which is a great thing.
  • The vampires coming out of the water bit was creepy.
  • Full-frontal vamps vs. wolfies, been a while since Underworld.
  • Jackson Rathbone amazed me with his film ‘Dread’(check out my review on the left) and his 3 seconds appearance in the trailer gave me chills. The dude is awesome.

These are the things that gives me hope that this film will be spectacular.

I know I will be flamed for liking Twilight, but say whatever you want about the last two films, Slade will do great!

Check out the trailer:

Reports are coming out that actress Juno Temple has signed on to star in the upcoming film “Jack & Diane”.

“Jack & Diane” is a werewolf film,  it’s not a straight horror film, but more a love story between two teenage girls  where one of the girls becomes a werewolf.

Juno Temple previously appeared in films like “Year One”, “Notes on a Scandal”, “Atonement” and “The Other Boleyn Girl”.

I remember Juno Temple from Year One only and I gotta say she is pretty good. I need to see her in a lead role to judge her acting better but she is pretty damn hot. And yes I’m dying to see some more werewolf movies as vampire and zombies are done to death by now(I dont have a problem with that either, I just wanna see more from this sub-genre as well).

Reviews Pending.
