So much worse than I ever could have imagined. Everything about this tepid production shrieks of fakery & dishonesty. The script is.... AWFUL!!! So bad, so phony, so mechanical, and so devoid of any recognizable life. Atrocious "acting" by the vacuous Amanda Seyfried in the leading role doesn't help. When her sister gets mauled by the big bad wolf and dies, Amanda's supposed to be grief-stricken, yet she has such a puny emotional range she seems more like a sorority girl in need of Pepto-Bismol. Director Catherine Hardwicke made a couple of good films before this -- naturalistic dramas Thirteen and Lords of Dogtown. But there's nothing she can do with this dead air bubble. The young men here all seem like creatures from an Abercrombie & Fitch photo shoot. Even the great Julie Christie -- her face airbrushed into fictitious youthfulness and her trademark Brit accent scrubbed away -- comes through with a bad performance. Any movie that won't let Christie create a character -- or even be Christie -- should never have been made. The audience for this pic appears to be un-discerning 'tween girls who will hate this pic as soon as they can discern.

when this movie first came out, I heard it was terrible, but I stilled wanted to see it. I really enjoyed it. my sister and I spent the whole movie trying to figure out who the wolf was and were surprised by the ending. I found the characters like-able and loved the costuming. I feel like this movie is more of a horror move than the romance it was advertised as.

Rated 1/10. My copy wouldn't even play, as it was damaged.

Lame but the guys are hot. Called out the killer the first second s/he showed on screen.

I can't add anything that hasn't already been said. So let me echo those who have gone before me. THIS MOVIE IS HORRIBLE.... i have tried on more than one occasion to watch it (i love me some Gary Oldman) but each time the stupidity of it will not allow me, my time is worth too much. If you value your time, skip this. (Sorry Gaz....)

This film has no redeeming features....some creative sets, perhaps some "cool" costumes, but that's it! A pathetic movie; why was it made in the first place? The first 10 minutes made this evident, unfortunately I was physically incapacitated and coudn't replace the disc with another worth watching.

this movie is about a wolf and red riding hood. I have watched this movie a lot. on the edge of my seat the whole time. never a dull moment. absolutely love it!!!!

This movie was awful. Like someone else said, the idea did focus on werewolves. They really should have stuck to the Red Riding Hood story. Heck, make it an adventure where the wolf is a villain or something. Even make them team up. I'm sure it would have been even a little bit better than this.

Forgettable. I shouldn't expect any better from the director of Twilight. This story could be a lot better, but it has poor acting and an unlikeable Red. She is a bit of a sociopath I think. The teenybopper actors would appeal to the Twilight fans.

THIS is the fantasy movie I was wanting when I borrowed the horrible Mirror Mirror. I was surprised by the mystery plot, spellbound (like watching Hugo or LOTR), and just enjoyed the whole thing. I have no idea why so many bad reviews.
