A little cheese and a little whine

Film Log: The Wolfman

Details here.

This film has a deeper sense of tragedy than its 1941 predecessor, and is visually delightful, with a consistently dark and gothic feel. However, it lacks much in the way of suspense or fright, and wanders fairly gently to its inevitable conclusion with just a couple of action sequences to quicken the pace. The acting is pretty good, although the accents are somewhat unstable (the action seems to be set mostly in a part of Ireland located between Yorkshire, Lancashire and Derbyshire).  Anthony Hopkins is eminently watchable but a little under-used.
