What I found was honestly a mixed bag. The cinematography and setting was great projecting a very interesting atmosphere especially when some of the gore was thrown into the mix. The special effects and make-up were tremendous, although, I would have loved to have seen less CGI (I am not a CGI fan at all). The acting was solid, but far from spectacular and the story was typical. However, I felt that this film could have been much more, and actually needed to weed out some of the back-story to allow the movie as whole to grow together. Some of it just seemed disjointed because there was not enough time dedicated to development. In the end, it is exactly what it is, a remake of a classic tale, and I believe its fate will be similar to Bram Stoker’s Dracula, which will gain popularity as it ages. Look at it this way, it is an enjoyable film and one that is a better alternative for werewolf fans than Twilight.
