In a medieval village a beautiful young girl falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family's displeasure. When her sister is killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village, the people call on a famed werewolf hunter to help them kill the wolf. As the death toll rises with each moon, the girl begins to suspect that the werewolf could be someone she loves. Panic grips the town as she discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast--one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect...and bait.

Gary Oldman Stood Out As He Always Does And It Was Just A Ver Good Movie
This is obviously an ADAPTATION of the Red Riding Hood story, a far fetching, albeit quite interesting take on the story. You have a grandmother, a wolf, red riding hood, etc. That's about where the similarity ends.
Catherine Hardwicke is known for her colorful, contrasting shots of cinematography and in certain places during the film she didn't disappoint. What was hard to accept was the bad acting and incongruous script. Valerie (Red) lost her sister to the Wolf and it was like no great emotion. A small, blip of a mourning scene then it was life as usual. Now perhaps it was bad editing and the raw emotions of losing her sister (this includes the parents, mind you) was left on the cutting room floor, but the acting seemed disconnected from what the characters were supposed to be feeling. No depth, really bad flow. Too bad.
Gary Oldham was great, as he really always is and maybe that showed up the rest of the cast. But it just fell flat. You never bought into the story or the characters so it made the movie SLOOOOOWWWWWW.
Many comparisons to Twilight I have read here. The only connection is she directed that movie as well. Will have to say her filming style comes through and thats the only reference you can make as these plots are dissimilar.
All in all, rent don't buy. And be prepared for lackluster acting and a mediocre script. Visually quite appealing but not sure you want to invest for just that.
