The original version was made in 1941 and it was a huge success and gave birth to many of its clones generally in B grade horror flicks. Hollywood is crazy about Lycan, Werewolf, Dracula myths and we’ve seen many of them many times. The full moon day, the curse, the damned turning into wolf man, gypsy myth and love as ultimate solution. The film has company of three fine actors- Anthony Hopkins, Benecio Del Toro, Hugo Weaving but the real heroes of the film are production designer, cinematographer, visual effects director and make up crew. Visually its stunning film but the film fails to bring the freshness in plot, story and treatment. The Wolfman reminds you watching King Kong, Godzilla and Dracula films and that’s make it quite mediocre one in the end. Though watching it on bluray rip is just great visual treat.
