Even a man who is pure in heart and says his prayers by night, may see the Wolfman movie when the wolfbane blooms and decide if it's all right!

Well I'm not good at reviews and I dont want to tell any spoilers so im just going to say what i thought about the movie.

Ok maybe one spoiler............

********************** SPOILER *********************
There is side boob, yay!!
*********************SPOILER END********************

Now that the important part has been revealed... What did I think of the Wolfman remake? First I was very happy with the overall atmosphere that Johnston provided for the movie. I couldn't help but get caught up in the gloomy shadows and fog like I did with the original and later Hammer offerings. The woods and London set pieces are a gem to watch and give a better feeling of the time period then recent efforts did--such as Sherlock Holmes. The FX are also quite good which I was worried about the most. The creature changing works much better on the big screen than it does in the trailers.



The plot varied a little from 1940 movie, but had plenty of nods, which is a good thing as it needed some more 'meat on the bone' but it also makes it uneven--sometimes feeling like the story is being added as you watch.

Benicio Del Toro and Mr. Hopkins deliver good performances as you expect but feel slightly subdued leaving the most memorable duties to Hugo Weaving and Emily Blunt. These two added much needed emotion and sparkle to the whole thing.

Johnston has done a great job with the action, especially with the first killing spree and London chase. My favorite part is at the end. I will not go into detail but it gave me a sense of the kind of CBM we can expect with Captain America.

I decided not to give a plot summary because it's best to go in with the memmories of the Lon Channey Jr version and go from there. Overall this is not a perfect film but one I enjoyed a great deal, and one that I had so much fun watching and will watch again.

Again I'm not good at reviews but hope this is helpful

Wolfman...= Bloody good action, Howling good fun with some extra blood on the side

3 1/2 out of 5

Teabag out :)

Teabag, indeed you've been bitten by the Beast! Thanks for the movie review. Good job mate!
Shaman - 2/10/2010, 10:36 AM
Dude there's "sideboob" in it?!?!?! I'm totally THERE!!! :))

Great review!!! Emily Blunt SHOULD have been Black Widdow!!! Not that big boobed orangutan people are attracted to!!! *shakes fist in angre*
ElBicho - 2/10/2010, 10:36 AM
I'll be checking this out tomorrow night!!!
selinakyle - 2/10/2010, 10:37 AM
lol @ side boob. Nice review Teabag.
thwhtGuardian - 2/10/2010, 10:40 AM
great review Tea! Did it get released early in the UK? I didn't think it came out yet.
CRITIC17 - 2/10/2010, 10:40 AM
@Tea: LOL!!!

@Shaman: You don't like Scarlett??? Hang on... I gotta catch my breath... Why don't you like her/think she shouldn't have been Black Widow (don't get me wrong, Blunt is my second choice)...???
Betty - 2/10/2010, 10:43 AM
Is it hairy side boob? Is there a bride of Wolfman?

Great job Tea! Better job than most. You don't go on and on and on and very little spoilers. You make me want to download this movie! I would love if you review a movie that you severely disliked next time.
Betty - 2/10/2010, 10:47 AM
The mark of the underboob.

She bares her breasts now!
CRITIC17 - 2/10/2010, 10:48 AM
@Betty: LMAO!!!! Just download??? Not good enough for a 10 dollar ticket?? Well, I'm just waiting until I see it on tv in a few years...
Betty - 2/10/2010, 10:50 AM
Oh man, Smallville review, I'll be waiting on that one! Shweet
MrJosh - 2/10/2010, 10:50 AM
going to see it this weekend.
RorMachine - 2/10/2010, 10:54 AM
What do you mean your not too good at this?? That was great dude. Maybe could have done with a few negatives to explain why you dropped the star n a half but otherwise you've convinced me to see it!

And re reading, I see you did say it was uneven! I have actually heard that. Empire only gave it 2 stars.
InTylerWeTrust - 2/10/2010, 10:58 AM
SIDE BOOB?! I have to see this, NOW!

Aha, all joking aside, great review tea. I'm looking forward to checking this out in a couple days.
teebtime - 2/10/2010, 11:09 AM
@Shaman....the comment about scar is close to blasphemy. If she is an orangutan, then "I'm gon' stay at home and play with my monkey"-Dave C.
foxfan - 2/10/2010, 11:13 AM
dude MANY THANKS for doing a review that doesn't rehash the story. i hope other reviewers will follow your lead!
GUNSMITH - 2/10/2010, 11:18 AM
IMA WATCH IT.
JoshWilding - 2/10/2010, 11:36 AM
Brilliant review tea! :) I'm not gonna have time to see this until next week but the mention of side-boob has me even more excited!

Guys, check out my X-FACTOR INVESTIGATIONS Fan Cast under "Fan Fic"!!!
ecksmanfan - 2/10/2010, 11:38 AM
Nice work Tea! I'm excited to see this film as I am a major sucker for the old Universal Monsters and the one consistent thing I've heard about this film is it's faithfulness to the original film.
JoshWilding - 2/10/2010, 11:39 AM
Oh, and tea - dont forget that the new season of Supernatural starts on Living at 9pm tonight! :)
RedSkullGeezer - 2/10/2010, 11:45 AM
Tea..Good Job its about time we get a review that does'nt tell me the whole damn movie plot. I will go see it just to see how JJ does with it,even though he did step in after the other clown director booted!!
StephenStrange - 2/10/2010, 11:46 AM

Cool. Glad it came out good. I wanted to watch it but was unsure if it would disgrace the original or not. But I wanna see Johnston lastest work so I'm there. Thanks Tea!
teebtime - 2/10/2010, 12:23 PM
@tea

Thats cold man. Just plain cold
flames809 - 2/10/2010, 12:38 PM
sounds good
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/10/2010, 12:41 PM
@tea

I f*cking promise it!!! I will take your tip and go watch it!!! :D
punisher23 - 2/10/2010, 12:57 PM
Tea@ Thanks for the positive reveiw. Glad you enjoyed it! I'm extremely pumped for this film. Hopefully, with this film most likely being successful, they can explore other Classic Monsters like The Creature from the Black Lagoon and the Invisable Man.
superdog - 2/10/2010, 1:16 PM
This review sucks, no mention of hot wolf on girl action.
BryEL - 2/10/2010, 1:16 PM
I'm a giant fan of Lon Jr.'s flick. Hopefully this'll be the start of an entire Universal Monsters remake! I'm sure Creature is next, but I doubt they'll do Mummy (damn you Sommers), Dracula (played out), Metropolis (come on, we're ready for it), and Phantom (eh..)

James Whale's FRANKENSTEIN is a M****R F***ING MUST!!
BryEL - 2/10/2010, 1:19 PM
And the Golem. Forgot that.
1chris2 - 2/10/2010, 2:59 PM
i love asian,black,and exotic chicks wow.ohhh great review. i hope the film does good,and we get a remake to the creature from the black lagoon.
