Synopsis
"Inspired by the classic Universal film that launched a legacy of horror, The Wolfman brings the myth of a cursed man back to its iconic origins. Oscar® winner Benicio Del Toro stars as Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father (Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins), Talbot sets out to find his brother…and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Lawrence Talbot’s childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother’s fiancée, Gwen Conliffe (Emily Blunt), tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline (Hugo Weaving) has come to investigate. As he pieces together the gory puzzle, he hears of an ancient curse that turns the afflicted into werewolves when the moon is full. Now, if he has any chance at ending the slaughter and protecting the woman he has grown to love, Talbot must destroy the vicious creature in the woods surrounding Blackmoor. But as he hunts for the nightmarish beast, a simple man with a tortured past will uncover a primal side to himself…one he never imagined existed."

Here's my take on The Wolf Man Remake. 3 out of 5 Knives. It's got great music, the set design is gorgeous and Del Toro, Blunt & Weaving are great. The effects by Baker are fantastic and it was all around fun to watch. As far as problems, there were six BIG ones...

1. Anthony Hopkins was TERRIBLE
2. Joe Johnson has no understanding of atmosphere
3. David Self's rewrite fucked up the script
4. There are two third-act plot twists that have no business being in this movie
5. It never felt like a Wolf Man movie (Maleva's presence is lacking, the silver wolf cane is underused and there was an overabundance of CGI)
6. (Here's the big one) I never once felt sorry for Talbot; not because of Del Toro's performance but because the film spends WAY too much time dealing with the other characters.

Still, given all the behind-the-scene problems, it was better than it should've been. Nowhere near the masterpiece of the original Wolf Man but it's still fun. JW.
