"Weaving and Hopkins managed to steal the show with their immense acting talents"

The Wolfman is a remake of the 1941 horror film of the same name. The central plot follows Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro), a man who re-unites with his father (Anthony Hopkins) after learning his brother has been brutally murdered. Talbot, who has had a distant relationship with his family, decides to stay home in order to discover what happened to his brother. As he gets deeper into his 'investigation', he unravels secrets from his childhood and crosses path with the werewolf, which eventually bites him and makes him a target.

The romance between Talbot (Del Toro) and Gwen (Blunt) felt rather cold at times, which is disappointing so the main focus of the plot shifted towards Talbot and his father John (Hopkins). Weaving and Hopkins managed to steal the show with their immense acting talents but overall it's predictable and laughable. The action sequences were reasonably exiting, but the one thing that aggravated me the most was the pacing of the film. It starts off slow to introduce the characters and setting, and then all of a sudden it kicks to high gear -  leaving major plot holes throughout the film. 

When embarking on a remake, one should consider that although the tale is classic, your audience is new and endowed with a much higher expectation with their modern film making. The unfortunate predictability of this story creates a frustration. The fantastic transformation sequences were a show of Johnston's artistic and creative ability, but at no point are you scared, surprised or seduced and I left dissatisfied.
