Very watchable, but nothing to get excited over, 22 October 2011
Author: sgtking from United States

A lot of movie franchises wear out their welcome, but hopefully die a merciful death. Some start out really well and get us excited for further adventures, but then at some point it loses it's way. Sequels are often, but not always unnecessary and not always bad. People need to know when to stop churning them out. Lately, some dead franchises have been rebooted and many times successfully. The 'Howling' series is one that definitely went on too long, but didn't have to end with a whimper. The last installment was so bad that not only did it take 16 years to make another, but instead of it being another sequel it starts things over. The result I'm sorry to say is not something that'll be remembered for decades to come, but it's not altogether bad either.

Pros: Strong performances, especially by the two young leads who have great chemistry. Engaging story. Moves at a steady pace. Quite good feature debut for director/writer Joe Nimziki, who injects this with much style. The minimal make-up effects, including the werewolf designs, are pretty good. A couple cool homages to the 1981 original. Exciting finale.

Cons: Far too much narration. Some characters needed more fleshing out. Mostly poor CGI. Too much time wasted on the teen drama stuff. Nothing we haven't seen before. Lacking in the scare department. There is of course some color, but most of the time the film looks so drab that it's depressing. Forgettable score and soundtrack.

Final thoughts: First off, I have to admit I haven't read any of the 'Twilight' books or watched the films. Since I can't compare I have to judge 'Reborn' on it's own merits. It's competently made, well acted, somewhat compelling, and unlike some of the previous films it's not an embarrassment. As an attempt at a reboot for a new franchise it's not a very memorable one, but you could find much worse.

My rating: 2.5/5
