The story of Marlowe Higgins, a lost soul who also happens to be a werewolf. For years he has struggled with his affliction, until he finds a way to use his unfortunate curse for good - he only kills the ones that really have it coming.
Lawrence Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. His father sent him from the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor to an insane asylum, then he goes to America. When his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns to his father's estate to learn that his brother's mauled body has been found. Reunited with his estranged father, Lawrence sets out to find his brother's killer... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Someone or something with brute strength and insatiable blood lust has been killing the villagers, and a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline comes to investigate. Written by
Early in pre-production, Canadian theatre actor Mason Shumaker was considered for the role of Lawrence Talbot/Wolfman. However, director Joe Johnston eventually thought that Shumaker was too young for the part, and the studio wanted to go with a more bankable name. See more »
In Gwen's antique shop there is what seems to be a small replica of Auguste Rodin's "The Thinker," which was first created around 1902. However, upon closer inspection this statue, while sharing the same position as the Thinker, is dressed and notably less muscular than Rodin's statue. See more »
How do you summary a remake you've loved so much as a whole?A masterful executed movie
The beautiful compositions of Danny Elfman, the sets, or the atmosphere Joe Johnston has created, or of course the stunning performances of Emily Blunt and Hugo Weaving.How do i begin...
I'll keep it short.I've just came back from the movies and i must say-"The Wolfman" is the best remake I've ever seen.We live in a world, filled with bad to worse remakes, only a few of them above average.But this was really good, especially when you're waiting for it such a long time.
The leads were good.I was a little disappointed of sir Anthony Hopkins's acting, but in the end, there is a reason that may explain this a little.Benicio Del Toro was good as well, but i felt so close to Emily Blunt, and even to Hugo Weaving (who soon should have a knight title of his own).They were very convincing, i loved them.
Joe Johnston has done his job very well-the movie was emotional at moments, and gory and scary, when needed.The kills were very impressive and there were some "jump" scenes of good quality and were very well added too.The good jump scenes are something one could see very rare in such a good quality.But here there were even a few of them.The set decoration was great-London well-adjusted to 1891, the weapons, costumes and language of the people, the atmosphere, as well.
The Wolfman is a great remake with great actors and performances.Stunning! My rate: *****/*****
