Director Christophe Gans' film is gorgeous to look at, extremely ambitious, and stylistically impressive; but small misses derail it.

A mad agglomeration of styles and traditions that ultimately results in nothing so much as a mad agglomeration of styles and traditions.

With this grisly popcorn movie, we're reminded of the heavy-handed contributions that some U.S. blockbusters are making to global culture.

Gans appears to have no threshold of pain when it comes to his eardrums.

This new take on horror is more of the bloody same.

It's the best darned French werewolf kung-fu movie I've ever seen. That's not saying much.

Looking Closer
January 15, 2005
The hero feels free to sleep with any prostitute, even as he's wooing the one he calls his 'true love.' Isn't there a conflict of interest there?

Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus
January 31, 2002
A lush old-school drama, modernized only by some whimsical efforts at martial-arts combat and a saturation of CGI effects work.

Screen It!
January 11, 2002
Its flashiness and eventual, ludicrous plot developments ultimately undermine what could have been a good picture.
Eugene Novikov
Film Blather
March 14, 2002
The kind of movie that could inspire a comic book.

Its beast, which looks like a papier-mâché dinosaur, jumps around like a cheap monster from a bad 1950's sci-fi flick.

The result will leave serious cinephiles cold and bore those in search of lurid cheap thrills.

It's dispiriting to see the French relinquish all irony and attempt to out-schlock the Americans.
Max Messier
January 10, 2002
Brutal. Ugly. Predictable. Boring. Stereotypical. Comical. Violent. Lethargic.
