WAY better than I had expected. After watching Twilight (the film was pure rubbish), I thought that this was going to be just as bad (I hate Catherine Hardwicke). But it was a pleasant surprise.
It's a teenage fantasy romance, so you know it's probably not going to be Oscar worthy, but it's much better than the average movie of that type.
The actors & actresses are good, at least they know how to act (coff coff Twilight). The story is interesting, the rythm is always the same throughout the film. I wouldn't have guessed who the wolf was in a million years, so extra point for that. The guys are hot and, let's face it, that's pretty important in a film like this.
If you're looking for a deep, horror or mistery film this is not the best choice, because it's superficial and the wolf is just an excuse to tell a love story.
If you're looking for a faithful adaptation of the story, this is not your film either, although it does follow the original story to some point.
But if you're looking for a teen fantasy story, then this is the best option.
