2010 – Directed by Joe Johnston
Review by Jimmy King
Benicio Del Toro, is Lawrence Talbot, an actor who goes home for his brothers funeral and becomes the hunter of his brothers killer. While tracking the killer he is attacked and finds himself under the curse of the wolfman. Anthony Hopkins plays the father and offers experience and guidance for dealing with the curse/gift of being able to kill at will when the moon is full because he too is under the same curse. Lawrence finds out that father is the killer of the brother and the revenge struggle begins. The look and feel of the movie are gorgeous and the special effects help take this classic story into the current century. This story doesn’t recreate the wheel but it’s a great escape and a fun scary movie.
