Red Riding Hood

Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) lives in a village plagued by a werewolf, which is apparently worse than having an ant problem. After her sister is killed by the beast, the village calls in Gary Oldman, who specialises in catching Very Bad Dogs. He informs the village that the beast Lives Among Them. So who can it be?

This is an unfocused and fairly dull interpretation of the tale, with the classic problem of a passive protagonist: Valerie doesn’t drive the action, and her main goal seems to be choosing between her childhood sweetheart Peter (smouldering but poor) and Henry (quite nice and also rich). 5/10
