The city ends up being more interesting than the story or characters. Too bad we can barely see it.

The elegant decay of Bucharest offers welcome visual relief from this otherwise tedious goth romance.

Cheap special effects and banal dialogue rule.

Moments of inspiration vie in vain with Goth cliché.

A silly werewolf movie without any fangs.

There's no official rule which says that werewolf movies have to be boring, but it doesn't seem like anyone has tried particularly hard in a long, long time.

L.A. Weekly

The ads for Blood and Chocolate proudly declare that it's 'from the producers of Underworld', as if that's something to brag about.

Full Review… | July 6, 2010

A far cry from such sneakily subversive werewolf-sex tales as The Company of Wolves or Ginger Snaps, this pallid little picture is all Lost Boys posturing by way of the sublimely ridiculous Covenant.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Numbingly pedestrian.

Jam! Movies

A bland, forgettable, and sub-par teen marketed horror cash-in that bored me to tears...

Full Review… | July 10, 2007
Cinema Crazed

A truly laughable movie, one that takes itself far too seriously without ever taking a moment to consider who its audience is -- or if it even has one.

...the film's positives are ultimately outweighed by its negatives.

Reel Film Reviews

A junior version of Underworld, minus the vampires, the action scenes, the cool FX, and the half-a-brain.

Movies for the Masses

This movie is another sign of a growing tendency in contemporary cinema towards conspicuous imitation. It seems that originality is no longer something to aspire to.

Full Review… | April 23, 2007

Sangue & Chocolate talvez devesse se chamar Câmera & Lenta, já que sua diretora utiliza este recurso à exaustão ao longo da projeção.

Cinema em Cena

It's a beautifully shot, good little picture.

Film Journal International

The film's awkward connections among nationality, gender, and race ("human" and "canine") never quite cohere, but Vivian's ability to embrace her dual nature marks her difference from her narrowly focused masculine associates.

Full Review… | February 24, 2007

Setting up a conflict between humans and lycanthropes, this inelegant adaptation of Annette Curtis Klausse's teen novel wants to be a tragedy, with the "loup garoux" - that's a fancy term for werewolves - struggling for survival in present day Romania.

Full Review… | February 17, 2007

If it came to a wolfbitch fight, the girls from Ginger Snaps could rip up the entire werewolf race from Blood and Chocolate without mussing their fur.

Empire Magazine

...pretty much your standard teenage-Romanian-werewolf movie...

Sacramento News & Review

Most of the dialogue verges between the hormonally overwrought and the insipid.

Full Review… | February 8, 2007
Austin Chronicle

So little happens in Blood and Chocolate that it almost serves as a cautionary tale about traveling to Romania - even if you're a werewolf, you're going to be sullen and boring.

Audience Reviews for Blood and Chocolate


Blood and Chocolate, because why should Vampires get all the miserable fun? Seriously though, this film really does seem to be a Werewolf film that wants to be in competition with your common Vampire film but fails by almost copying every element, with all the same miserable teenagers, poncy night clubs, arrogant long haired boys, moody 'you don't understand me' story-lines that even the most miserable of teenage goths is bored of by now (although they do get bored quite easily). It brings nothing new to the idea of werewolf-ism apart from the fact that these Werewolves are more pure, which is pretty handy as it means the film makers save money on special effects and can just get a couple of trained Dogs in instead. Seriously, I want my Werewolves to be big, scary and to rip people to pieces, I do not expect them to mope about making chocolate and drinking absinthe because they think it's cool. Werewolf films are not meant to be this boring. The transformation scenes are good though in that they are camp as hell and unintentionally funny.

I think Blood and Chocolate is purposefully ugly to convey with the film's overall mood and I enjoyed the fact that in this werewolf film there was more development of character. There wasn't an explosion of CGI and a lot of interesting things went on in the film. I came out satisfied. I was entertained.

This movie really stands apart from others of its genre--that is, werewolf stories. It's intelligently made and there is an actual plot to follow. The acting is convincing, and thankfully the change from man to wolf is beautifully executed. Some great action. Some great romance. Some really great Hugh Dancy...nuff said!
