[quote=“Elmer Ephraim Ellsworth”]I like the cast, I love the story, but alas, despite the fact that Rick Baker was the effects coordinator,
(And, was routinely shunned & ignored upon numerous requests to utilize practicle make-up effects similar to those he implemented while working on An American Werewolf In London.) this looks like a complete CGI-laden crap-fest.
Not to mention, the director isn’t exactly what I’d call subtle or impressive.[/quote]
The CGI does get to me, but the prospect of having Del Toro as Talbot is nothing but perfect. I love the fact that they are branching the story unlike all the remakes today. It seems so raw and intense. I love the clips of him being tortured in ice water, etc, and when he yells "I will kill all of you."
Del Toro needs more respect from audiences and he is getting it in his roles. Che Guevara, Lawrence Talbot/Wolfman, and soon Moe Howard/Three Stooges. Some legendary roles.
