MUST SEE MOVIE: Red Riding Hood

Hey guys! Good evening. I just got home; I went out with my friends. We went to Greenbelt 3 and watched Red Riding Hood. This is a blog review for the movie.

Obviously, from it’s title, this movie was inspired by the very famous fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood. Fairy tale inspired movies are really “in” right now, there’s another movie Beauty and the Beast starring Vanessa Hudgens, that’s coming out real soon. I don’t know lately it’s fairy tale all over again. From vampires to fairy tales. Nice!  This movie was produced by Leonardo de Caprio. This movie is from the director of Twilight.

Okay so Amanda Seyfried is the star on this film, she did a pretty good job in this movie. It only gets to show that she’s really a good actress. She also starred in the movies, Jennifer’s Body, Dear John and Letters to Juliet, which she also did a very good job. Her name on this film is Valerie. The setting is, she’s living with her family in a village and she’s in love with this wood cutter named Peter. They were childhood friends. She was engaged to another man, which she didn’t love. Of course this movie will not work if we don’t have the infamous “Werewolf”. There’s a lot of twists in this movie. The werewolf is also living in the village. Valerie can talk with the werewolf.  It was very shocking when the real werewolf was revealed.

The Cast:

Amanda Seyfried as Valerie
Virginia Madsen as Suzette
Billy Burke as Cesaire
Julie Christie as Grandmother
Gary Oldman as Father Solomon
Max Irons as Henry Lazar
Michael Shanks as Adrien Lazar
Christine Willes as Madame Lazar
Michael Hogan as The Reeve
Lukas Haas as Father August

Amanda’s acting here is outstanding, I will not say it’s the best, but it’s something new especially for her as a new actress. It gave her career a different take. She portrayed the role very well. She looks innocent and powerful at the same time on the film. But the ending was sad. That’s all I can say, because I don’t want to spoil it for you. So you better watch it! It’s a good movie. So that’s my take on this fairy tale movie. I’ll talk to you guys on my next blog. Bye!

This has been Abby saying I heart you. Go home and beware of the werewolf!

Much love,
