Wolfman Movie Criticism

In response to Werewolf967’s wolfman movie review, I’d like to say he does make some good points, however I think he is being overly harsh on the Wolfman. In fact, my review of wolfman is the exact opposite! I urge you to see it!

I can absolutely see why Werewolf967 is saying not to see the movie. If you look at it as a straight werewolf movie, there are many problems with it – starting with the werewolf itself. But remember, this is a remake! The studio tried to stay with the original Wolfman and although I have never seen the original, I don’t think they strayed too far. In fact, the werewolf looks almost exactly like the original looked. The Wolfman was a classic 1930s monster – the likes of Dracula and Frankenstein – and, well, they stuck with that image in the movie. Doesn’t everyone usually hate it when they take a remake and they redo the whole thing so that it is unrecognizable?

I agree with what Werewolf967 says in that the movie does not accurately portray the werewolf community – but like Werewolf967 himself says – the Wolfman was created a looong looong time ago. They had no intention of representing the werewolf community – they were just trying to remake a movie that already existed! It’s a mistake to go into the movie expecting something original, but if you go into the movie expecting an update to an old classic, well, that’s what you get. And I have to say, the very fact that the werewolf is what the whole movie is about has got to be a good enough reason to see it!

I do agree with Werewolf967 though that I’d like to see Hollywood come out with something completely original that represents werewolves. They did it with vampires! I think they can do it with werewolves too.

My final thoughts: before you decide whether or not you are going to go see this movie, read both of our reviews…and decide for yourself if you’re going in it to see a remake of a classic (then you’re following my thoughts and you should probably see it!) or are you going into it hoping to see a new exciting version of werewolves (then you’re looking from Werewolf967’s perspective and you might not want to see it…)

    in my opinion, the remake of the Wolf Man, though as werewolf967 said Hollywood’s Werewolf did not stop from tearing up the screen, which i thought was COMPLETLY AWESOME but the interpertation of what the werewolf looked like was…….. misleading

  3. Yes, it was misleading, I guess we did kind of expect that tho… it just seems every werewolf movie is the same 🙁

  4. I very much enjoyed the film and my review (which I linked) is positive with a few reservations.

  7. It was pretty gruesome, i was really surprised… its not even scary tho!

  8. DaRk says:

    Still, it seems good, but it’s just.. A wrong way to make “werewolves” look.
