Good Enough To Make Coke Shoot Out of My Nose
10 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I saw this movie at the matinée show and no coke didn't shoot out of my nose but it would have had I been drinking coke. I've been waiting for nearly two years to see this thing and let's just say I was a little disappointed.

No, it's not that bad but I was expecting there to be a lot more violence. I still really liked it for the most part but I guess the R to PG-13 re-cut affected that? I liked the Werewolves and wouldn't mind owning the Stan Winston made one. Though I have no idea where I'd put it? Garage? There are plenty of fight scenes to whet the appetite, though, like I said they aren't that graphic. The hot girls in this are definitely very hot. I have this weird thing for Rhona Mitra, perhaps a tad unhealthy.

The look of the movie is very good. There's some very cool shots at night and the final scene is pretty damn sweet.

The plot is fairly straight forward but adequate for a movie of this type. No big surprises, nothing that will change your life, or change the way you look at Werewolves.

The acting is okay, not great but okay. Believable enough.

I'd say this movie is worth seeing and you could bring you kids if they are like, ten or above. It's not too scary for them I think.

Overall, it's like a B-. If you love the monster movie genre this should fill you up for little while.
