The script continues to go downhill by by cramming every reference to the original fairy tale in that it possibly can, in the most ridiculous way it can .. .

The cast gets to play dress up, but no one can save the dreadful material.
October 24, 2017
There's no tension or angst in this movie... and the cheapsies SFX and bored, disinterested performances from the cast killed whatever moody emo vibe Hardwicke was trying to evoke.

Director Catherine Hardwicke is out to tap into the demographic of 13 to 18-year-old tweens who fund these gothic soap operas with their babysitting money.

The clunky dialogue, overstuffed story and cartoonish special effects riddle the lycanthropic fantasy thriller like a hail of silver bullets.

We like a turkey, don't we, children? We like a big fat turkey we can dance around, crowingly, don't we? Haven't we had a lot of fun doing that over the years? But this is such a dismal runt of a turkey.

Sure, werewolves and vampires have an animal sensuality that's hard to resist. But does that mean the most charming women must succumb to them?

The CGI wolf would have been rubbish a decade ago, the clearly indoor village set looks like it once featured in an old episode of Star Trek and the central love story is lacking in bite.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
June 2, 2013
Trite dialogue, poor special effects and an insubstantial storyline make this one a bit of a dud.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

With this film and the first "Twilight," Hardwicke has shown that she doesn't have much talent for direction and that she isn't that good a judge of material if this is the kind of film she keeps choosing.

Gary Oldman is the one bright light in this tired drama that deserves neither his talent or your time.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.0/5
September 1, 2011
Sexualising a beloved children's fairy tale seems an odd move, but when flanked by an unoriginal story and lacklustre performances, that appears to be the least of the film's problems.

This movie is just a lot of people staring at each other by the light of a fire.

Catherine Hardwicke, what the Hell happened?
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

If they had just picked one way to go with it -- mystery, monster story, inquisition metaphor -- it would have probably worked. Instead its trying to go in a lot of different directions at once and ultimately gets nowhere.

Red Riding Hood is sort of like a hook-up that you remember more or less fondly but still would never tell your friends about.

This movie is terrible.

The poster's tagline promotes the film as "a breathtaking vision of a 700 year old legend" (note that the legend is '700 years old' and not '700 years long' as I had begun to suspect midway through the screening).
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
March 10, 2011
A strange, dreary and stubbornly un-entertaining reboot of the fairy tale, where ancient forebodings about creatures of the night are used as grist for the mill of angsty teenage lust.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The heart of the teenage girl may well be a dark forest - but never one quite so naff as this.
