  • Even wild man Gary Oldman, as a priest ready to eighty-six the wolfman with silver nail polish, can't liven up this humorless hogwash. And it's just sad to see the legendary Julie Christie stuck playing the grandmother. show more

  • This tedious retelling of the venerable fairy tale-"Twilight" with Oedipal kinks-takes place in a medieval village that is plagued by a werewolf, and that looks like a shtetl settled by California actors. show more

  • Seyfried holds the camera's attention, playing this storybook business pretty much straight, although David Leslie Johnson's script puts the actress sorely to the test. show more

    I liked it. A beautiful movie visually, and with a fleshed out plot from the fairy take. Amanda Seyfried is beautiful, Gary Oldman is appropriately sinister, and the atmosphere of the movie is appropriately mysterious and creepy. Julie Christie looks great too. Not a mastepiece, but a helluva lot better than the critical reviews. See it yourself and make up your own mind.

    Some of the story seemed cliche, but otherwise an amazing movie! This is one of the very few movies I can watch over and over from beginning to end and not be completely bored.
