If the film Sleepy Hollow was bloodless and stupid then it would be Red Riding Hood. This is a good looking film with a cast of support actors that should give it a whole lot of cred... but really, it's just a horror movie for pussies. Director Catherine Hardwicke previously directed Twilight and it would seem that she's hellbent on paving the way for dumb & moronic tweey flicks. As the title says, this is an "adaptation" (I used the term lightly) of Little Red Riding Hood. At first I was impressed with the style and the look of the movie but from the first word spoken I was completely disconnected. Everyone but Gary Oldman speaks in a modern American accent which does the movie a huge disservice. Such fairy-tales lend themselves to olde English... and then there's every werewolf cliche in the book. The town that's stalked... the whole "it's one of us" premise it exploited and the usual romantic arch drives the fodder along (the main dude even looks like Edward Cullen). So yeah, not a great review... the only kudos I will give it is for a nifty wrap-up in the final act. The conclusion didn't disappoint.... shame about the rest.
