Storyline

In Bucharest, Romania, the orphan Vivian was raised by her aunt after losing her parents ten years ago in the Rocky Mountains, Colorado. Her family belongs to a bloodline of werewolves and Vivian is promised to the leader of the pack, Gabriel. When the American cartoonist Aiden, who is researching werewolves for his publisher for the next edition of his magazine, meets Vivian, they immediately fall in love for each other. However, the evil son of Gabriel and Vivian's cousin Rafe poisons Gabriel about the love of Vivian, forcing her to choose between her bounds with her family and her passion for Aiden.

Trivia

The plot of the book and movie are so different, they may as well be separate titles as the movie's ending especially was completely different. Fans of the Blood and Chocolate novel have always been crazy over Vivian and Gabriel, who're considered a classic couple of the werewolf genre. Fans were thus shocked to see Gabriel portrayed as a villain and Vivian ending up with a human. See more »

Don't immediately dismiss this movie. It is surprisingly well done.
26 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

I have to admit, I didn't walk into the theater with high hopes. All the talk about it not being close to the book creep-ed me out and I braced myself for disappointment. But it didn't come. The movie did have some down points that could have been avoided, but that wasn't enough to make it bad.

Hugh Dancy's acting was great, and he was unbelievably cute in the movie. Agnes Bruckner was not much to watch. She didn't really bring anything special to the screen, and her acting was very robotic. The rest of the cast was awesome.

I think the best part about the movie was the Cinematography. I really enjoyed the effects and the camera movements were highly skilled and a joy to watch.

Now the bad part. For all the people out there that have read the book(which includes me) and liked it, you could be in for a wild ride. They made drastic changes to major parts of the book, one would be the removment of Vivians Mother, Esme, which through the movie off balance for a bit. It does, however, pick up the pieces and comes off with a very interesting story instead.

One other thing I didn't fancy about the movie was Rafe and the Five. The fact that they ended up to be Vivians cousins, or at least Rafe, which takes away another good story found in the book. Gabriel certainly isn't like his character in the book and that really saddened me. Out of all the characters, he was very one dimensional.

Now, the movie is nothing like the book except for a few major details and the producers added there own twist to them. If you ask me, lots of the changes were un-called for, but you just have to look past them. If you put the book out of your mind when you go to see it and try not to compare (which ended up to be very easy since the movie is so different you can't even tell it was based on the book) then I think you will enjoy this. You have to to try to like it for what it is and not hate it for what it should be. Oh, and don't bring you little kitties to this. There are a few gore scenes(not to explicit but enough) and some mature content. I wouldn't have categorized it as horror, but it does have a certain atmosphere that gives you the chills. I highly recommend this movie for it is the best werewolf movie you will probably ever run into. I rate it 9/10, and that is only because it is not enough like the book that is should be.
