Catherine Hardwicke, what the Hell happened?

it perfectly sums up the muddled feeling of a gothic horror romance that never feels all that romantic nor particularly scary.

Sexualising a beloved children's fairy tale seems an odd move, but when flanked by an unoriginal story and lacklustre performances, that appears to be the least of the film's problems.

"Oh my God, you can talk," Valerie exclaims at one point when confronted by the wolf (he can't). Oh my God, I've wasted almost two hours of my life in this theatre.

Have you had questions about the motivations of the wolf, or suspicions about Grandma? Have you pondered the sexual connotations of this age-old fairy tale? Me neither. Just the same, someone has made a movie about...

Like Twilight, makes the shallow desire to run away with a boy the heroine's main concern.

Bloodless on every level.

What truly needs abolishing is the notion that the wretched Twilight saga is worth emulating.

This one's a retake on 'Twilight.' I'd hang out in a different hood if I had the chance.

... this gorgeously-mounted production fails to rouse the primitive ferocity of the primal beauty and the beast tale.

Mildly diverting if you're curious, but don't expect to be blown away.

Mixes the melodrama of Twilight with the hokey horror of The Village but falls short of being 'so bad its good.' It's just not good.

This movie is just a lot of people staring at each other by the light of a fire.

We always suspected the kid in the red cloak had a dark side. The new "Red Riding Hood" starring Amanda Seyfried confirms our suspicions.

Dismal failure is redeemed only by the occasional inadvertent laugh
April 27, 2011
Neither a horror film nor an effective teen-skewing romantic fable, Red Riding Hood fails to find the teen lit niche it seeks.
April 25, 2011
The whole Twilight lusting-to-lose-her-virginity-to-her-true-love story falls even flatter in a Grimm historical setting. Anachronistic, true-romance clichs sap the plot's strength, while the visuals get more and more predictable.

Social and sexual tension is nil, thus making a perfect fit with the clawless drama.
April 20, 2011
Evokes less menace than a Teddy bear's picnic and is as disappointingly reactionary as the Bella Swan brigade.
April 20, 2011
A boring mess, neither scary nor sexy enough to justify its innovations.
