Movie: Red Riding Hood (2011)

Believe the legend. Beware the wolf.

Red Riding Hood (2011) is a dark fantasy movie loosely based on the folk tale Little Red Riding Hood.

Synopsis from IMDb: Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) is a young woman living in a small village whose parents have arranged for her to marry Henry (Max Irons), the successful village blacksmith. However, Valerie grew up with Peter (Shiloh Fernandez), and she has been in love with him most of her life. They are planning on running away together, when her sister is killed by the wolf that has been terrorizing the village.

For many years, the wolf has not attacked the village people as long as they provide him food on a full moon. But under a blood red moon, the wolf has now killed a human. The villagers have had enough of this wolf, and they band together to hunt him down and kill it. They are not successful, so they call in Father Solomon (Gary Oldman), because this is no ordinary wolf. Father Solomon warns the people that this wolf takes human form by day, and the wolf could be one of them.

If you like urban fantasy for teens such as Twilight, then you will enjoy watching this movie. Having said that, let's take a look at the summary of the critics' reception as compiled by Wikipedia and you will get what I mean.

"It's a foolish story, marred by a strange blend of overacting and bland, offhand performances."
My comment: For goodness sake, why did Gary Oldman agree to star in this movie as that superfluous priest?

"A movie that cross-pollinates the Twilight formula with a werewolf and a girl who always wears a red hooded cape, although I don't recall her doing any riding."
My comment: Seriously, if you're one of the Twilight and Beastly haters, don't watch this movie.

"If the classics of world literature crying out to be filmed as a sexual fantasy for teenage girls, surely 'Red Riding Hood' is far down on the list."
My comment: Amanda Seyfried is gorgeous and sexy. That's it.

To watch or not to watch, you make your own choice. It's definitely not recommended by myself.
