Set in a medieval village, this modern retelling of the classic children's tale surely did create some stir. I included "Red Riding Hood" in my list of most anticipated films in 2011 and boy it did not disappoint.
Caught in a conflict between love and family tradition, Valerie aptly played by Amanda Seyfried must brave all the problems along the way. The texture of the film is commendable as it can be seen with the sheer cinematography and nice editing. For people who loved the children classic, it surely is a brave retelling of that. In some ways or another, the film may be a bit dark and disturbing to young viewers but it was all worth it. It combined the great appeal of the tale and the "Twilight" inspired setting to create a new world of make believe.
Aside from the outstanding scenes, Seyfried was exceptional and played her role perfectly. If you enjoyed the complexities of the werewolves in Twilight, then you'll surely take a bite on this film as well. This one's a 3.5 out of 5 popcorns.
