It's a beautifully shot, good little picture.

Despite a few shock cuts and some decently staged shootouts, Blood and Chocolate is rarely thrilling and never scary ... and it seems to have been designed that way. If anything, it's a romance masquerading as a horror film.

Worthy of a franchise, but Bruckner has to go.

I found Blood and Chocolate to be a lovely surprise, an imaginative and visually lush picture firmly rooted in the tradition of gothic romance and elegiac horror films about misunderstood monsters.

...a dark, moody fairytale set in modern day, perfect for a date with that special someone who doesn't want to be subjected to the usual gore overkill we've been treated to in the past couple of years

There's enough moral ambiguity in this human/werewolf romance to give it the depth necessary to keep the film from falling completely flat.

Silliness is mostly kept at bay (though the werewolves' habit of hopping around while in human form made me wonder at first if the movie was about werefrogs or werekangaroos).

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.

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.
