Joe Johnston signed on to make the film three weeks ahead of principal photography. This late start was one of the main reasons why he employed CGI in the werewolf transformations as there simply wasn't time to design new make-up effects. See more »
Sir John claims to have removed the gunpowder from the silver bullet 4 bore cartridges. However, he had not removed the primers, thus there would not have been a mere click from the falling hammers but a most definite bang from the primers. Furthermore, in some calibers the pressure from the primers may actually be enough to propel the bullets even without gunpowder. See more »
The Wolfman is awfully predictable and badly executed
When I watch a movie, I like to see something new. That was not the case with The Wolfman. This movie is predictable every step of the way. Within the first 10 minutes, I had guessed the rest of the story correctly.
Plus, the cheap scare tactic throughout the movie. Those moments where it was serene then suddenly the monster appear with a loud sound. There are plenty of them and my goodness there were not only annoying, but also predictable. You see, this movie has so many of them that you can tell when the next one is coming from.
Then the hole in logic. Ahh yes, every movie has them. But this one has gone above the norm. It seems a lot of the actions taken by the characters were simply just so it will fit the next scene, not because it's what a thinking human being will do.
Did I mention the horrible script? Dialogues were sub par at best and mostly laughable. The actors' performance couldn't really lift the snooze fest that is this movie.
I will recommend this movie for young teens looking for some cheap thrill. Otherwise, stay away.
