Pay no attention to the reviewer, who didn't like this movie, it's in actuality very entertaining. The story is first-rate. The combination of the presented fairy story into a thrilling venture is very well done. And the plot isn't irritating. The edgier suspenseful stories, like twists to the story, are fairly enjoyable. I also liked the dance sequence in the movie.
Catherine Hardwicke is an exhilarating speedy paced director. There are no shattered scenes or dragged moments. She creates gorgeous and impressive scenery for the story. I think she did her first-rate job in the original Twilight when she originated an incredible cast and set the appropriate tenor. There is some resemblances to Twilight like the 2 suitors for 1 damsel, and the wolf is a crumb like Twilight, and just so on.
However in ‘Red Riding Hood’, some of the actors are well casted. Virginia Madsen looks the part and a tad like Amanda so she is presently accurate as her mother. Billy Burke is fairly superior as the woodcutter father. Amanda Seyfried as Valerie looks like a myth maiden; she doesn't look so bad in this movie, but neither looks that good also. Julie Christie is a charming grandmother and Gary Oldman is watchable in his inquisitorial character.
The two male romantic leads lack the charms. Shiloh Fernandez as Peter reminds you of Joaquin Phoenix and is just a bit too unappealing for the part. Even though he is theoretical to be a plain woodcutter, they should have selected someone more attractive. Chemistry was missing with Amanda. Max Irons as Henry is a bit silly looking and faltering in his acting. However in all this doesn't make an issue since the movie is more a vision adventure and the romance isn't that essential to it.
Overall, it’s incredibly enjoyable and it is as well done as it could have been.
