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
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 »
It has to be the most boring, tiresome, sleepy, predictable horror film of the past ten years. "The Wolfman" comes with no story, no thrills, no scary moments, and with some questionable technical aspects, but only the special effects and the wonderful makeup job by Rick Baker almost saved this film of being the worst in recent days. It doesn't have one interesting thing in it to make you thrilled, excited, moved, provoked by it. Nothing!
Time and time again I found myself blinking my eyes trying to stay awake while watching this worthless waste of space, money and time. I couldn't buy the idea of Benicio Del Toro dragged into that world, and not even Anthony Hopkins trying to imitate himself with a presence that reminded me of his wonderful role in "Bram Stoker's Dracula", and the fact is I'm tired of seeing reducing his career to be a starring role in special effects based movies when we all know he's better in things full of life like "Nixon", "The Remains Of the Day", "The Silence of the Lambs" and the list can go forever. But lately all he's been doing is things like this.
Joe Johnston made better things with "October's Sky", "Jurassic Park 3" (yes I like this!), and "Honey I Shrunk the Kids", but "The Wolfman" has nothing good to see, nothing original to show and it only wasted good actors and lots of money. Just in case you think this is a useless film it's not, it's a great suggestion for those with insomnia problems. After 15 minutes of watching you'll be sleeping, quietly, dreaming of great horror films you might have watched during your entire life that doesn't resemble this rotten thing. 2/10
