This is the rare blockbuster that offers its characters - and its audience - no shelter.

With its mist-shrouded sets, gruesome slaughter and copious CGI, this is a surprisingly respectful updating of the 1941 Universal original.

Del Toro looks about as dangerous as an urban fox snoozing in a compost bin and Blunt seems to be suffering from some residual Victorian queenliness. Looking in the mirror afterwards, I seemed pale from weariness.

The Wolfman delivers plenty of scares and an abundance of eviscerations, but director Joe Johnston doesn't take the film anywhere unexpected.

The problem with this modern version of the old tale, however, is that it's basically a load of codswallop we can no longer swallow without choking.

Benicio Del Toro stars in this lushly art-designed 19th-century period film, but his beefcake-gone-bad magnetism is not enough to justify sitting through a movie that's full of sound, fury and unintentional camp -- and is still bafflingly inert.

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?
September 28, 2012
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.
July 31, 2012
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.
November 5, 2011
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.
March 9, 2011
What's missing in this Wolfman is something timeless: the human cost that gives tragic meaning to the metamorphosis and potential cure.
December 31, 2010
Joe Johnston turns a classic monster into an anaemic bore.
