Silver Bullets and Bitch Slaps
And it wasn’t any good at all and not because of Sika’s 2nd theory because that’s just absurd (but point taken for trying to sound British – everybody isn’t as fluid at it as we are).
But I would like to add a 4th theory as a reason for not liking it:
I’m not the greatest fan of the original Wolfman but a huge fan of classic Universal monsters. In this update the Werewolf rips people to pieces and sprinkles the sets with bodypart-confetti like it was Mardi Gras gone wrong. I lost count on how many got bit to death in the first attack alone! So if he’s that productive in biting people… shouldn’t there be an assload of wolfmen/women/kids roaming the streets at full moon? Because that’s how you catch the bad case of dog breath, right?
And in the original (I guess this is another theory) it was a personal story about one man’s problems with body hair. Here it’s a father/son-conflict that could’ve been interesting but never gets taken care of because we are served with two CGI-muppets fighting instead.
And why the hell doesn’t normal bullets hurt the wolfman? I know… Only silver bullets can KILL a werewolf but why doesn’t it hurt? At one point he gets bitchslapped and that seemed to hurt.
So… does that mean silver bullets AND bitch slaps is their weak spots?
