Blood and Chocolate (2007)
Critic Consensus: Cheap CG effects and laughable dialogue make Blood and Chocolate worse than the usual werewolf flick.
Iron Jawed Angels director Katja von Garnier and the producers of Underworld team to adapt author Annette Curtis Klause's tale of a teenage werewolf who must choose between love and loyalty to the pack when she falls for a handsome young human.

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