Starring: Benicio Del Toro, Anthony Hopkins, Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving
Story: 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. Lawrence Talbot is a haunted nobleman lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Talbot sets out to find his brother... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. (Universal Pictures)
Rated: R for bloody horror, violence and gore
Bottom Line: Decent visuals, manufactured scares, tons of blood and an A-list cast that hams it up at every turn makes THE WOLFMAN the cinematic equivalent of a dog that’ll chase and grab a thrown tennis ball…but never bring it back to its owner. This pooch was pretty tame.
