Synopsis– A man returns to his fathers home, after hearing news that his brother was brutally killed. After promising his brothers fiance to find whatever it is that killed his brother, he is bitten by the same werewolf that killed his brother, turning him into what he’s been hunting all along.
I would like to get this off my chest, Hugo Weaving’s character is fucking USELESS in this movie. He comes in supposedly to hunt for the wolf, and help everyone, but all he does is stand around- tell some bullshit cops what to do… and does absolutely nothing. I thought he would have more to do in this movie. Wow.
The CGI was a lot of times LAUGHABLY bad… but sometimes it was pretty good. Like- there was a scene with a bear that looked so fake i had to literally laugh out loud. But other cool scenes made up for it. Some of the CGI was impressive, however.
Do you love gore? bloody violence? Organs being ripped apart? If you said yes to either of these, youll love this movie. Oh my GOD was this movie violent!! I simply loved the ACTION!! If you have a weak stomach please dont watch it, I went with Rachel and she kept hiding her face making gagging noises because of the amount of blood.
Bad thing about remakes is- you know how they end, thats all. The movie had some distracting cons but overall it was better then i thought it would be. It DOES have a couple of horror jump-scary scenes, so i recommend it.
OVERALL: 85% B
