There is a better movie in here, lost in the edit and screaming to get out, but unfortunately, this Wolfman is howling at a moon that's only half-full.

The movie keeps the traditional look of the Wolfman and uses a mixture of practical effects and digital wizardry.

Given its troubled path to the big screen, The Wolfman (2010) is far better than it has any right to be.

I was dumbly entertained in spite of (or maybe because of) all that.

I enjoyed it as a companion piece to the superior original...

A slick update of the monster movie classic, The Wolfman features strong imagery and performances, yet is lacking in animal instinct.

While The Wolfman often veers towards the realm of camp, no irony is to be found herein.

In the end, The Wolfman reminded me of a couple of people I have dated - achingly beautiful but emotionally barren, and just a tiny little bit scary.

Like most of director Joe Johnston's work, solidly gets the job done as a brisk, bloody entertainment.

Lawrence's transformation is scary because he's a sympathetic character. ... His sophistication can't save him from reckless impulses. I risk making a fool of myself if I say this is timely and relevant.

works hard to honor the B-movie legacy on whose shoulders it stands while also elaborating and expanding the mythology

Despite the hairy production process, Universal Pictures has managed to rescue a half decent chiller in this remake of the 1941 classic B-grade Wolfman that starred Lon Chaney as the man turned beast.

Journeyman director Joe Johnston has crafted a generally effective if inconsequential monster movie, highlighted by Rick Baker's beautifully rendered makeup effects and designs.

To mix monsters -- The Wolfman is one of those films that was put together like Frankenstein. With all the bloody musical chairs, The Wolfman should collapse. But the Wolfman has enough camp and verve to grab you by the throat. And maybe the funny bone.

This is the rare blockbuster that offers its characters - and its audience - no shelter.

It's not insultingly dumb. That's refreshing in a 2010 horror pic.

Neither as bad as you've probably heard, nor is it anywhere near as good as I might have hoped.
