Film Review: The Wolfman
A remake on the classic 1941 film with an all star cast. The plot was twisted a little bit from the original. The film was really fun to watch and was interesting at times. The film begins the main Character Lawarence on a theatre tour in London and informed of his brothers disappearance. He heads back to Blackmoor and visits his estranged father played by Anthony Hopkins. Lawrence finds a band of gypsy's camped out during a full moon. A rabid werewolf strikes and severely wounds him which turns Lawrence. There should have been more character development with Inspector Francis Aberline played by Hugo Weaving. The blue tones in the film really set the mood. There was a substantial amount of blood in the film is a stylish way to earn an R rating. This built the film up for me and Danny Elfman was the original composer. I'm still thinking if it would have been better to see the film in the theater to fully get the surround sound. Overall I found the remake to be not the best remake nor the worst remake.
