Critic Reviews for Blood and Chocolate

All Critics (74) | Top Critics (25)

The city ends up being more interesting than the story or characters. Too bad we can barely see it.

December 3, 2007 | Full Review…

The elegant decay of Bucharest offers welcome visual relief from this otherwise tedious goth romance.

December 3, 2007 | Full Review…

Setting up a conflict between humans and lycanthropes, this inelegant adaptation of Annette Curtis Klausse's teen novel wants to be a tragedy, with the "loup garoux" - that's a fancy term for werewolves - struggling for survival in present day Romania.

February 17, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

If it came to a wolfbitch fight, the girls from Ginger Snaps could rip up the entire werewolf race from Blood and Chocolate without mussing their fur.

February 16, 2007 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Cheap special effects and banal dialogue rule.

February 10, 2007 | Rating: 3/6 | Full Review…

Most of the dialogue verges between the hormonally overwrought and the insipid.

Audience Reviews for Blood and Chocolate

I think Blood and Chocolate is purposefully ugly to convey with the film's overall mood and I enjoyed the fact that in this werewolf film there was more development of character. There wasn't an explosion of CGI and a lot of interesting things went on in the film. I came out satisfied. I was entertained.

This movie really stands apart from others of its genre--that is, werewolf stories. It's intelligently made and there is an actual plot to follow. The acting is convincing, and thankfully the change from man to wolf is beautifully executed. Some great action. Some great romance. Some really great Hugh Dancy...nuff said!
