Ty Burr This Red Riding Hood doesn't put out
Marzanne van den Berg Bekende sprokie dra 'n nuwe rooi rillerbaaidjie
Christy Lemirw It's 'Twighlight' at the plastic fair
Steve Ramos Despite its epic images, elaborate sets and monster effects, the highlight of Red Riding Hood remains Valerie's huge blood red cape.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
James Berardinelli This is a beautifully wrapped box that contains only a tiny, forgettable trinket. Maybe the Twilight crowd will appreciate it (although I'm not sure about that), but it's hard to imagine anyone else being impressed.
C. Fuchs Unless you can watch this with a verbally interactive theater audience or on some future installment of Mystery Science Theater 3000, you're going to be far better off going back and watching Bug Bunny and company show how to make a clever and entertaining version of an age-old fairy tale.
Tomatometer Amanda Seyfried is magnetic in Red Riding Hood's starring role, but she's let down by her uninspired leading men and a painfully cliched script.
