    It was okay, set in some time without guns, but with medieval type of weapons, and provincial outlook. The film was not all that exciting, even during direct confrontations with the big bad wolf (because the wolf is so ridiculously fast and strong), who had been satiated for years with livestock sacrifice under a blood red moon in order to not kill the people in a village, but then something happens, a human is killed by the wolf, and the villagers become truly fearful of their lives and are on high alert. Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) is one of the villagers who is initially impacted by the human killing. The villagers call for the priest-like entity (played by Gary Oldman in an uninspired role) to help defend themselves from the wolf. After setting up some of the rules of the wolf (there are places that the wolf can't go), it ends up being a who-is-it supernatural mystery.


    There is something in how Catherine Hardwicke (the director) frames her shots that is irritating to watch, she picks odd angles, and overall, those choices aren't as effective to mine the horror from the wolf's rampage (perhaps she's under the PG-13 shooting guidelines, nevertheless, better directors could think of better ways to shoot scenes than what she's demonstrated so far).

    This film is aimed at young girls, and it might be a decent matinee viewing as well.


    I give it 2 stars or a grade of C.

    Well 12% on community and 6% on top critics.


    That can't be good.

    First "The Unborn" and now this? I'm not sure I understand the pattern here, Mr. Oldman...

    Maybe there is no pattern (I sure hope not!)...
