A shame that when the leery lycanthrope isn't cutting people to shreds, the story never quite cuts it.

[T]his Wolfman has rather more bark than bite.
June 7, 2019
There are elements here that seem to have been on the right track - the visual design and Danny Elfman's score are all excellent - but it is all completely mishandled on nearly every conceivable level.

This is a film that revels in its schlock, and does so in a manner that is sure to please anyone looking for a bloody good time.

All over the place and bland at the same time.
February 6, 2018
Even with its seasoned A-list cast, The Wolfman doesn't quite conjure the dark angst and the suggestive sensuousness of the Victorian horror tales it was inspired by.

Sure, it's more sinister and gory (ridiculously so at times), but Del Toro's acting is a standout.

The Wolfman attempts to recapture the old school feel of monster movies, but ends up coming across as a film that was patched together by a group of people with very different ideas of what they wanted from it.

Who would have thought that only six weeks into 2010 we would have a contender for worst film of the year?

There is a better movie in here, lost in the edit and screaming to get out, but unfortunately, this Wolfman is howling at a moon that's only half-full.

The movie keeps the traditional look of the Wolfman and uses a mixture of practical effects and digital wizardry.
February 10, 2012
It truly is a modern spin on a classic, in almost all of the worst ways.

Given its troubled path to the big screen, The Wolfman (2010) is far better than it has any right to be.
April 4, 2011
I was dumbly entertained in spite of (or maybe because of) all that.

What's missing in this Wolfman is something timeless: the human cost that gives tragic meaning to the metamorphosis and potential cure.

Joe Johnston turns a classic monster into an anaemic bore.
October 21, 2010
The only thing scary about Joe Johnston's The Wolfman is that it exists. The fact that people, nay professionals, spent several years working on this picture genuinely upsets me.

I enjoyed it as a companion piece to the superior original...
July 17, 2010
A slick update of the monster movie classic, The Wolfman features strong imagery and performances, yet is lacking in animal instinct.
July 5, 2010
While The Wolfman often veers towards the realm of camp, no irony is to be found herein.
