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.

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.

Numbingly pedestrian.

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

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.

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

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.

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

It's a beautifully shot, good little picture.

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.

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.

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.

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

Cheap special effects and banal dialogue rule.

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

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.
